A Mother’s Time Out

Posted on

So, I have struggled with depression for over half of my life.  Even spent some time in the hospital battling my demons.  I’ll have times where I’m doing really well, and then times where it just feels like nothing can go right.  Currently, I am in the “nothing can go right” mentality, and I wish I could just snap out of it, but I just can’t seem to.  All I want to do is curl up and read my books or sleep.  Even playing with my kids is a chore, and I find myself short-tempered with them A LOT.

The only thing that seems to help is when I give MYSELF a time out.  This gives me a chance to regroup and face my family again.  Unfortunately, my family doesn’t always let me have this time.  I think my husband has realized that something needs to give though because last night, he put me in TIME OUT.
