Feeling worthless


Hi all im new to this.

Ive 3 kids under 6 and no family support.

Feel like im doing a terrible job at bein a mammy and to be honest feel so worthless in myself. Theres always one child whos sick or appointments to go to.

No friends..partner who works constantly or bites my head off ...one child with behaviour issuses..and a very very tired mammy.

Someone please tell me im not the only one.

Hi and welcome, believe me you’re not a terrible mom. You’re doing the best u can for your babies, And u deserve to be happy and u deserve to take a break. And please don’t beat yourself up is not your fault u going through hard times right now. Take baby steps u don’t have to be in a rush and you’re definitely not worthless. Am here for u if u need to talk. My boys are grown now and when they was small I kept myself busy and I went to get help so I could start feeling better

I just dont want to feel like this anymore . I want to be happy and the last year ive bein doin so well and was hopin to come off my medication and now this hits ..its like a vicious cycle.

How do i keep goin while waitin on it to pass.

Never give up, and be confident in what you do. You're going to go through tough times - that's life.

Never give up. You've got to stay strong to be strong in tough times. Tough times never last, but tough people do.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not obsess.

Just breathe and have faith that all will work out for the best.

Thank you .

hi welcome to you.no your not alone that's for sure.ive two kids one with autism and it can be tough.maybe your hubby doesn't realise how hard it is as he is out all day.lots of dads probably think woman are just making a fuss.could you join parent clubs maybe just to get meeting parents in the same position as you.would you set up a little camera at home for a few days and secretly film your daily struggles maybe then your hubby would realise how hard it really is.i bet your a great mum and your kids would never want another.take care.

All tried . Its too overwelmin for the liitle one ...so is shoppin centres ..bright lights etc etc

Just one thing after another

Hi there! First of all, you are not alone! Motherhood is not easy regardless of ones situation, every family is different but the one constant is that as moms, our jobs are never ending and often unnoticed. Just do the best you can and remember that you are the best mommy for your children, you are all they need. It always good to communicate with your partner and make sure they know how you feel, parenthood can be exhausting and leave you both empty, but it is crucial you still find time to connect and remember who you were before the children came. If at all possible seek out a mommy and me group, where you can meet other moms (churches often offer them for free), it definitely helped me when I first had my babies, as it made me see that I was not alone and we shared a lot of the same struggles.

Praying for you!

Thank u so much for replyin. Its good to no im not alone and have this site to vent andto know there is other people just the same as me.

Having a few good days and getting stronger then i was and hopefully will be able to stay strong.

Thanks for your prayers
