When you reach rock bottom how do you get back up? Thought I'd reached my lowest point before......I was wrong!!! :'(

Is it just self pity? Sometimes I think it is but honestly don't know what to think anymore!

      Young? Not sure about that? Number gets bigger but maturity levels don't seem to want to keep up! Don't know if it's because of the way I feel or what but feel so much younger than my years!

      God yes! They're all beautiful I also have twins they're My youngest, girls, they've just turned 5 bit yes its extremely hard! Especially because im on my own. Don't feel worthy of them, feel they need and deserve better!

      Sleeping? I can't remember the last time I've slept properly, Im on mirtazapine apparently they knock you out? Well not me! Tried all sorts over the counter meds but nothing!

      Sleep is just not my friend!

      Honestly? Love my babies all the world but hate me! Xx

      Hi Deirdre, Thank you for your replies xx

      My children are 15, 12, my boys birthday today he's 7 and then the twins who are 5, they do bring me joy, I love them and know they love me I just feel like I'm not enough sometimes, because I feel down so much, struggling with depression and anxiety and sleeplessness just makes tougher, never really spoken to anyone about struggling with them, they're my children and my responsibility, I chose to have them so don't feel I have the right to complain about it being hard or asking for help, just venting on here I guess.

      Just want To get myself better as feel then I can be a better mum for them xx

    Hi Dondons, I hope that you are not feeling too sad today,, have you managed to get any rest and perhaps just a bit of you time....

    Are there any groups nearby you, that maybe mums meet for support, maybe a twins group? ... please ask your health visitor if they know of any kind of help.... FOR YOU...

    I do know just how wonderful , but exhausting little ones can be.. I truly hope that you make a friend for help for you.... ..take care, you are in my thoughts,, Deirdre... speak soon xxxxxxx

    Hey do you think it could still be the mitazapine dondon3. So many people seems to have problems just recently, the later winter months do seem to be the worst time.

    Just last Monday was the busiest day for separation and divorce. January and February are bad months in terms of depression, and with the lack of money post christmas along with the cold weather, and the sniffles and flu bugs it just not great

    Hi dondons, I hope you feel a little better.. I was thinking of you this morning while I was having a lie in, it is a luxury that you never have with little ones xx as they grow, life will get easier, try and enjoy every moment as when you look back, the time seems to have flown... my baby having a baby, wonderful, but I could never do it now... when I look back, I thrived with four children under the age of five ( I was probably worn out all the time ) but of course you look back fondly... keep your chin up young lady, bless you, in my thoughts, Deirdre xx

    hi, sorry ive not replied, im doing ok I guess? Keeping afloat, thank you for your messages and thank you Deirdre..no a lay in is not something I'm familiar with, my children are early risers, and full of energy as soon as they wake, if only I had some of their energy but yes I do cherish and love them to pieces, I know I should enjoy them while they're young, kinda look forward to them getting older but at the same time I dread it as don't really want them to grow up just want a slightly easier life, but hey it's the life I chose and wouldn't change them for the world, they're hard work and pains a lot of the time but they're my pains 😊 xx

      Thank you xx

      If I could sleep at nights I wouldn't mind so much, take last for instance, I didn't sleep till around 5 and you could set your watch by my youngest 3 babies, 6:30 wake up calls, it is so draining!

      And I hope so, way I see it I have a 1 in 5 chance of being looked after by them lol, maybe I'll be the pain when I'm older, give them a taste of their own medicine hehe 😊 xx
