Hi. I am new hear and I am usually a very pleasant and positive person and I have been told that many, many times. But, right now my coping skills are wearing thin. I am married and have 3 wonderful children. My marriage isn't openly bad but could definately be improved. At the moment, I am feeling VERY alone and trying not to cry. My husband works nights, every night except Sunday. Therefore, I am like a single mom every night. I work part-time from home and I volunteer a lot at the schools. So, life is busy. At the moment, my house is a wreck because no one in this house cleans up after themselves so I usually end my week by playing catch up on housework and rarely leave the house on weekends because I am so busy doing that. I feel so invisible. I feel like I am only here to serve the needs of others and mine are never fulfilled. I feel like no one cares. I am a very giving person and make sacrifices for others all the time. I don't do it for payback either. But is it wrong to want the same treatment in return on occasion? I want that but then I feel guilty about it. I know probably every other mom and wife feels the same way at times. It just makes me feel even more lonely that I can't talk to anyone about it because I feel too guilty to admit it and I feel selfish admitting it to friends and family. Thank you for listening.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
