just wanted to say thank you for this thread--thank you OP and all the other posters. i feel the same way and i've only been a mom for 8 months. i'm technically a WAHM but i'm finding it almost impossible to work and take care of LO. i feel completely drained, physically and mentally. i haven't had any time away from LO in the past... i think... 4 or 5 months. i love her to death and i am very attached to her, but i'm finding it hard. it's like i don't know who i am anymore. and some days i feel bitter or resentful even though DH is supportive and helps as much as he can. but you know, i can't even type a full answer to this thread b/c LO is here and demands attention. before i go back to her... i wanted to say that at least i find comfort in reading your experiences and sharing mine with you.
