stay at home moms

‘My husband and I married. ‘I’m going to be a stay-at-home mom,’ I declared. With little push-back from him, out popped 2 children.’: SAHM’s candid feelings on feeling ‘horribly unseen’

“I proceeded with my plan to be Susie Homemaker meets Carol Brady. But no one was around to witness it. I was with another human all day, but felt horribly unseen. I was over-touched, but not talked to enough. I’d been constantly moving, but never really exercised my mind. I often found myself staring at the clock, willing the magical sound of the garage door to arrive.”

‘I haven’t heard a thank you all day. Not one. I’m a blur. I’m not sure what I did for myself, at all.’: Overwhelmed mom says she ‘sees why stay-at-home moms get depressed’

“Today I woke up early to make my birthday child French toast. I wanted to do it. I was HAPPY to do it. I got party supplies, then stopped off at a different store to get balloons. I have good kids and a good husband. But, it’s depressing to be everything to everybody. THAT’S how easy it is to feel alone.”
