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.
