Drama mamma.

Do people think because one has children, she is not human?
Do people really believe mothers do not suffer depression or other mental illnesses?
Do they really think because one has children, she does not feel sadness, hopelessness, torture in her mind and in her soul?
Because one has children, does that mean she doesn’t wish to be beautiful and sexy?
I love my children with all of my heart, they are my life. They are the reason I wake up everymorning. They are the reason I am getting help. I would not fight this if I didn’t have them, I would give up.
What kind of ignorant assumption is that? “You have children, you should be happy.”
Are there really people that ignorant to reality?
I am a human being.
I am fighting depression and other things. You don’t know me, I don’t want your pity, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me. I don’t feel sorry for myself. I wake up everyday and fight FOR MY CHILDREN.
But simply because I have children does not mean I don’t hurt and suffer from the same illnesses and emotions people without children suffer from.
Get educated on mental illness, ignorant people, please, do it for yourself so the next time you give an opinion nobody asked for, you don’t sound like such a dumbass

    I second that. You are a woman first, a mother second. As a human being, you will have the same range of emotions that others have. Kids aren’t a cure-all. But they’re great anyway.

Even though you don’t know me from a hole in the ground, I can tell you that I can see where you are coming from and from what I read your true friends give you love day in and day out and they try to support you through some tough times…I find that so great!! you gots the love baby..the hell with the fucktards!! buddha has spoken…***gives Yvonne big buddha hug***

    Actually, I think you are very strong to have kids and also be battling depression. I don’t have kids of my own….but my Love does. Kids are more than challenging! I don’t know how anyone does it….even without depression!! You go girl!
    Hey….when are we going to go shopping together?! I’ll come out there and pick you up…..we’ll have a blast!

    I’ve often thought that one of the biggest problems with our culture is the way that we set motherhood up on such a pedestal, and have such unreasonable expectations of moms. Moms must be perfect. Moms must be wholesome, not ever sexy. Moms must be happy and serene at all times. Moms must derive no joy whatsoever from any aspect of their lives except their children, because if they do, that makes them selfish people…especially if whatever is giving them that joy takes one second of their lives away from their children.
    Screw that. We’re moms, but we are also US. You be you, in all of your honesty, vulnerability, emotion and passion. You’ll get no pity from me, but you already have my undying admiration.

    Agreed. My mother has suffered from depression for most of her life, and it is a struggle that my whole family has embraced with her. I am so proud of my mother for fighting this disease. And I am proud of you too, even though I don’t really know you!

    I think it’s solely that: IGNORANT.

    If anything, I think that being a wife and mother adds stress to your life that could LEAD to depression. Mothers have so many more demands on them, and they tend to put the needs of everyone else first. That frantic schedule burns you out because it is never-ending. I honestly don’t know how you moms do it.
    There’s nothing wrong with thinking of yourself first now and then. You can’t be effective as a mother if you are totally burned out from meeting the needs of everyone else around you. “Me time” is a GOOD thing!
