Functioning Parent While Depressed
Everything is harder when depressed can you imagine how harder it is when your a mom with millions of responsibilities!! It’s crazy, no no it’s over crazy!!
The hardest thing really is how to act normal and not let your kids see any difference in your actions, emotions and daily behavior.
Many mothers with depression are less likely to engage positively with their kids and that’s the hard truth about depression, so can you imagine how hard we have to work to put this play on that everything is ok!
I recently left my job, it might not be the wisest choice but for me it was the best choice! I was stuck in a job where I was seriously dying I hated it beyond imagination and I felt like I had no purpose going to work everyday from 7.30am till 1pm doing nothing! Nothing at all!!!! I would rather be at the gym! Do errands! You know what I mean!
Jobless for a month and feeling lost, don’t know what I really wanna do in life. Feeling distance from my kids although trying my best to be so normal and the same me around them but it’s very hard it breaks my heart at times, thank Allah that my kids are old enough to not be needing me 24/7 and their off school and always having something to do with friends and cousins
I try very hard to ignore the little super-mom in my head telling me to buck up and deal. Because while I do believe in pushing myself to stay active and functioning when I’m depressed, I’ve also come to realize that it’s important not to push too hard! It’s ok it’s totally ok to feel like staying in bed all day and not wanting to do anything but eat!!! We are humans and we need to feel weak sometimes! Feel blue and feel sad! But the most important thing is that you know that I can’t stay like this forever! You need to fix it and fix it right. Everyone of us can in their time and way! We are all different and what works for me doesn’t have to work with you!
