    Default I feel like I'm drowning

    I am completely and utterly overwhelmed by this idea in my head that I'm not good enough.
    Tonight I looked at my beautiful boys and wished that they had more than me, better than me.
    I look at myself and see this inadequate excuse for a person. I can't think of a single thing I like about myself and I am so scared that my boys will see me this way too and learn I'm nothing.
    I don't know how I got here and I don't know what to do next. I can't keep living with these thoughts in my head.

    Big big hugs! Sorry I don't know your backstory... are you seeing anyone or taking any meds?

    Thanks LT. No meds no help. I'm too ashamed Of myself to see my dr. I know I have to do it, though.

    I'm not sure.
    I've never been confident but the degree of emptiness and self loathing has developed quickly and is new.

    Please don't be ashamed to see your Dr. They see it all the time and want to give help. You can always go to a different one from your usual to get a referral to someone if you're a bit embarrassed.

    I'm sorry you're going through these feelings ...

    I doubt your boys view you the same way you do. I'm sure they see someone quite quite different. You'd be more like a hero to them.
