I want to ask people to pray for me. I need strength and need help. No not financial help. I have very little patience any more. I have two kids that I love deeply and a husband that works his butt off to provide for us. I am not happy any more, every little thing upsets me. I used to dream of being a mother and playing with my kids everyday but that is not how my life has turned out. I feel like I could snap. I feel so lost and depressed. I'm not sure why. I have everything that I have ever dreamed of. I should be happy. I should have energy to play with my kids but I just don't. I would post this on Facebook but I don't want everyone knowing how weak I am. I'm not the type of person to ask for help. I am the one everyone comes to when they have problems. I'm the solver not the problem. I hope someone will understand me and pray for me and my family. I want to find my way to happiness again. I used to be the happiest person you could ever meet. I pretend to be happy around others theses days. I'm tired of pretending. Please help me. Thank you in advance!!

Maybe you and your family should consider taking a break from life and go on welfare. From what I have heard about welfare and foodstamps, it is like going on a luxurious vacation.

Just imagine yourself living the high life on welfare and foodstamps. Imagine how awesome it would be to just drop all your obligations and escape. Do anything you want to do, have your every wish catered to. You can be lazy, lay around the pool at the hotel and do whatever you want. All day long, no worries!

Go on welfare, you will become truly fulfilled in life. Rich and happy like the happy negro with his free cellphone and a bottle of Colt 45. Blacks get thru life without a care in the world, because everything they need or want is taken care of by the tax payers. Well, now it is your turn to be taken care of!

Most of the people who are on welfare are happy that they do not have to work anymore. Which is why so many people nowadays are living the high life on foodstamps and WIC.

I am so sorry to hear of your struggles.It sounds like my life also. I love my kids, but its hard to be a good mother sometimes.I am only human but I feel like people expect me to be Superhuman, and Im not. I have needs also and I feel so drained most days.Do pray and keep your faith.God will help you to stay strong. Don't ever give up on your kids,they need and love you.Be careful of the things you say or do to them because one day you may lose them and you'll be looking back on your life filled with regret and pain.Take it one day at a time and be thankful you have healthy kids and a good husband that provides for you.So many people don't have that.One day your kids will be grown and you'll look back and say to yourself "Hey! we made it!" You're richly blessed so give thanks to God and He will guide you through.Gods time is not our time,so try to be patient and love those babies and hubby with all your heart.I will pray for you.

If I didn't know better I would have thought I started this post. Of course if I did, "Cadburry" would be telling me to be more Christian- much like the good example his post here demonstrates. Hang in there "Upset". You are not alone. Look at your life and trim off all the excess stress that you can and practice saying no. It is very therapeutic. If you did not birth or marry them, their problems are not your problems. It's hard to say no to someone at first but you deserve to say yes to yourself too. Learn to deligate some of your load. It is possible.

I don't know how old your kids are, but do you think you could be suffering from postpartum depression? Either way, I'd talk to a doctor. You may need an anti-depressant. Life is hard! You need to get whatever help is needed to be at your best for your kids. They deserve a mom that is 100%. I admire your courage to reach out.
