It took an hour to put my toddler to bed. An hour. And I was not a good mom during that hour. I'm ready for a second chance tomorrow.

I’m not sure I want to be married to my H anymore. But I abandoned my career to stay home with our kids, and now it makes me feel so vulnerable. Also, I am a child of divorce and do not want my children to have the same experience.

I get extremely angry when my kid won't go to sleep. Told DH. Does he help me with bedtime? Nope. Never. Asshole.

My mom commented on how calm I was and what great boundaries I've set with my 21 month old. She doesn't witness bedtime when I feel THISCLOSE to losing my shit. Why do kids hate going to sleep so much?! Ugh. I am NOT calm right now.

I love working. 8 hours a day away from H is bliss. ...Until I get home.

My first time going to an ONS. So nervous. How do women do this without the fear of being murdered or something equally terrifying? I'm scared as fuck but I'm also so damn sexually frustrated that I don't care. Fuck hormones.

Felt so sick, dizzy. Just wanted some company for a minute to feel ok and make sure I didn’t pass out. That was asking too much. Nail in the coffin, last straw. I loathe him.

I say I don't care what we do for my birthday, but really, l do. Just want to feel special, even if for just a short while. No one even remembers mine half the time.

I want two weeks (14 full days) all to myself. No DH, no kids. Not to relax but to go through the house, room by room and de-clutter, de-junk, deep clean and throw useless crap out!! I’d order out every night too!

So embarrassed, I just literally pumped 2.03 from my debit card into my car.. 4.00 bills, and then 2.00 in loose change. I feel like a fucking loser. I sometimes envy people who are financially secure..smh I hope one day I’ll be secure enough!!!

I know my family appreciates what I do, I just can't convince myself that what I do is enough. Especially birthdays and holidays. Always feels like I should have done more.

Sometimes I wonder, out of all the girls at college, why DH chose me. He pursued me. He treats me like a queen and I don't deserve it most of the time. I'm average looking, bitchy and am a mess most of the time. Not sure I'd love me if I were him

I am not sure if what I did today was self care or depression.

I don't like my SIL, and I don't think she likes me either. But we stay close because we both fucking despise our MIL! The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Had a dream my H made a bunch of rules I to follow about my mental health. (I’m 2wks pp w/ #3) cuz I yelled @ him at a party cuz no one was listening to me. H threatened to take kids away if I didn’t follow. Woke up rn, sweaty & crying. I hate him.

DS16 went to a high school Homecoming dance last night as the only guy with a group of 8 girls. When I told DH that, he said "Sounds like the plot to a porn movie". I couldn't yell at him because, honestly, that was my first thought too when I heard it.

I wish the happy dreams about him would stop. They add fuel to my depression fire.

36 yrs badgering you for sex. I'm tired, you win. If you need it, look elsewhere, I'll do the same. I'm in shape, lets see who finds someone first. Passion and sex are a big part of the glue that holds marriages together, but you don't get that. Yet.

I'm so obsessed with losing weight that I looked up how many calories I burn off during sex and how many I take in if I swallow DH's cum (100 and 5 calories, if you're curious).

I have daydreams of meeting the man I’m supposed to be with. Supportive, loving, fun. Nothing like my husband.

I don't talk about my time in the military. It's not because it was traumatic for me and would trigger PTSD - it's because the first (and often only) thing someone wants to know if they find out is "Did you kill anyone?"

Brokenhearted that my 20yo ds is a failure to launch, he has every advantage one could dream of. Just told him to get a job or get out.

I finally told H this morning that I couldn't remember the last time I was happy. He told me to go see the Dr. Didn't ask what he could do to help make me happy, what's making me unhappy, nothing. I guess I know how much I mean to him now.

H was the one who “pushed” for 3somes etc. I did it to shut him up and he couldn’t handle it AT ALL. Will never do it again. He still can’t figure out why, idiot.

H can spend all day with his friends drinking and smoking. I'm home with the children and doing all the domestic shit. He comes home late to paw at me like a horny bear and I'm the asshole because I won't have sex with someone so neglectful.

Now that I'm older, looking back at it, I think my Moms Bipolar Depression was actually misdisgnosed DID (what used to be called Multiple Personality Disorder).

I drink a little too much alcohol and I smoke sometimes. I’m so healthy. DH has cancer, friend has cancer, dear friend’s spouse has cancer. I feel guilty about drinking and smoking.

I'd reconcile w/my estranged mother in a heartbeat, if she was willing to cut her second H & her second batch of kids out of her life & never mention them around me, But I know she wouldn't be willing to do that, so estrangement it is.
