    Default Motherhood: The Shameful Secrets

    As I said many times before in this thread London , what a great idea this was .

    Well alot has changed in my life and my guilt has changed alot to different guilt about different things but yep it never goes away, I guess that's motherhood .

    Baby nomad I could have wrote so much of your post . My guilt since Ds's autism diagnosis is just so bad. I can't even look at he's baby pics for gods sakes , I just feel guilt , how did it take me so long to figure out ?

    A year wasted from 18 months to now ( 3 in jan ) , umming and aahing with he's therapists , threads galore started by me on here worried bout he's lack of speech . And here we are today . My deepest suspicions were true and I feel very guilty that a whole year of early intervention could have already been done instead of us just starting this journey.

    I feel that I am never ever doing enough for him . If I'm not " teaching " him something every minute of the day I feel like I'm not doing enough .

    And the guilt to my daughter who misses out on so very much that sure she may not know about but * I * know . She has not gotten the best if me that my son got .

    Seriously . I have two beautiful healthy children that I'm not even enjoying these days because I'm just too busy feeling guilty about everything .

    And pippi Ill always love bubhub but yes it's harder to be truthful on here these days I feel . Not sure why I just am more reluctant . Maybe alot of people are gone , things have changed abit . Its still an amazing place I just don't always come here for support like I once did for fear of judgement .

    All you other posters that added to this recently , good on you . I hope it was cathartic. I hope you realise your not alone . Many many parents have or do feel just like you .

    Default Motherhood: The Shameful Secrets

    I have to resurrect your thread London it's one of those threads that sticks.

    I feel so terrible sometimes as a mother and think I'm doing such a crap job. Like today when I got angry because DD was crying and crying because she wanted to sleep but just wouldn't sleep no matter what I did, so I left the room in frustration and came back to a sleeping baby My heart just ripped in half! I know it sounds so stupid but its not to me I feel horrid How can I get so mad or frustrated is the better word with a baby!!!! I just don't get why if your tired you don't sleep why they cry instead. I think sometimes they rather not have all the fuss hence when I left she slept maybe she just wants to put her self to sleep without me in her face:/ !

    This thread reminds me of how I am only human and all mothers have their moments!

    Off to read it again thanks London!!!!!

    I see me having to post in this thread again before the year is up. I know I am going to face alot of challenges having a newborn again after soo many years of having an older child....ONE older child. My DS just went to his friends for a sleepover at his friends and I feel relieved to have him out the house for a day/night, even though he is going to his dads tomorrow for 4 days. I feel guilty about being happy about an extra 'night off' but at the same time I cant help but feel that relief. I feel even more guilty because Im pregnant so people would be like "well if you are happy about a 'night off' why are you having another baby??".

    This thread really needs to be a sticky!! It helped me so much in the past and I've though about reading it again but could never remember the name of it.
