Re: Please help - I'm afraid
Boy do I know what that feels like. You shouldn't feel guilty, however you should see it as a sign that you need to ask for help. And it can't be virtually, like us. You need to be able to hand your son off for a few hours and defuse. It does not make you a bad mother at all. It makes you human. I see it the same as the air mask analogy. Put the mask on yourself before your little ones. If you aren't taking care of you, how can you possibly take care of your son.
