Hello my name is Allie. I am a working mother of two young children. I have never done anything like this and I am a little nervous. Lately I have been feeling like I am going nowhere, like a hamster on a wheel. Doing the same routine over and over again. I also feel myself caring less and less about things. Or the things that didn't really matter before really matter now. I work second shift and don't get to see my kids as much as I would like. It bothered me but not as much because I knew I was working for them. But lately, I've been feeling like a bad mother for not being there helping with homework and making dinners or reading to them and tucking them in. My life is the same thing everyday. Wake up, get kids to school, clean the house, go to work, come home, go to bed. Wake up, get kids to school, clean the house, go to work, come home, go to bed. Wake up, get kids to school, clean the house, go to work, come home, go to bed. Over and over and over. I feel like I'm watching the same episode of a sitcom on repeat. It's difficult to find the words to express exactly what it is I'm feeling. I sit back and realize I have no social life. I have acquaintances, but absolutely no friends. I've distant myself from my family without even meaning to. I have no idea how this happened or how to begin to even to help myself. Thank you all for listening to or shall I say reading my story.
