How do you get through the day when really you just can't be bothered with any of it any more?

HunkerMunker Tue 15-Feb-05 21:30:36

Mumsnet. And hope that tomorrow's better. Plan nice things to do the next day. And go to bed early (ish). Are you OK, hun?

Not really OK at all. But I suppose it is not too early to go to bed. I spend the whole day looking forward to bedtime.

Remember that old cliche that tomorrow is another day.

write it down, cry and call someone for a chat, usually my friend who has 2 babies the same ages as mine.

and plan a day out for a change of scenary like hunker

What's up?

It's just too difficult. I keep thinking that this is it - this is my life - and I don't want to live it any more. I wish I could walk out of it and leave them all behind. I'm so tired of it.

(((hugs))) and lots of sympathy. I'm having a rough time of it at the moment as well. I won't tell you my coping method as it's far from healthy.

A hug from one of my little ones usually helps, at least temporarily. Or what about going through some photos? Set yourself some goals. Where do you want to be tomorrow, next week, in a year? What can you do to help get you there? Start doing something about it.

Other than that, early nights and trips out of the house can help break the mood a bit.

How old are the kiddies NobodyMuch?

NobodyMuch Tue 15-Feb-05 21:44:31

My husband is around. He tries to understand. But he can't really.

I can't seem to plan for tomorrow - it just seems that it will be even worse than today. I used to love being a mother, but now I just don't want to do it any more.

NobodyMuch Tue 15-Feb-05 21:45:27

Oldest is 7, next one is 1, and then there is another due in a few weeks.

mishi1977 Tue 15-Feb-05 21:47:06

nobody..u do it for ur kids....honestly even if it means u r on automatic pilot hold on in there hun and people are always around to listen
huge hugs

mummytummy Tue 15-Feb-05 21:48:14

You must be shattered. Is there anyone that can take some of the load off you? I remember feeling exhausted just before DD2, so how you must be feeling with 2 children. Are you eating well enough and drinking enough water?

romilly Tue 15-Feb-05 21:50:43

so sorry to hear you are blue NobodyMuch.

i'm sure you are much loved by your family even if they dont always show it.

hang in there, spoil yourself with something you like doing tomorrow - make time for yourself wherever possible - sounds to me like you need it.

dinny Tue 15-Feb-05 21:56:02

Nobodymuch, no wonder you feel low. You must be worn out and very apprehensive. That is a tiny age gap, a lot to cope with.

I can really sympathise so much. I was horrible when I was pg for the second time. I was happy about being pg and desperately wanted the baby but was so exhausted. And having 2 of them must be even more difficult.

I'm feeling much the same at the moment about wondering why I carry on. My kids are wonderful but it's so bloody hard.

Hang in there, keep posting. We are all here to listen to you, whatever you need. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It may be distant at the moment, but keep it in sight.

Maybe I'll go and lie in bed with some music on. And get my husband to get me a drink.
