I have often wanted to reach out and meet some other mummies with similar interests, issues and concerns as I. I am a mother of 1, a gorgeous 14mo baby boy.
I have returned back to work (4 days pw) and finding I am not dealing with the "work-life balance" as well as I would like. I find myself feeling guilty in all aspects of my life (work, home) and constantly feel the pressure that I am not doing a good enough job.
This has gotten me into a pretty dark place. I am now constantly tired, lacking motivation and not feeling in control at all. Just wanting to reach out on here and hope to chat to other mummies who have at one point or another felt this way. I don't have a large support network of mummies, I am the first in my family to have a child, first grandchild on both sides, no close friends with babies and am not close with my parents. Feeling pretty isolated and hoping to chat to push through this time and start to enjoy life again. I love my son, he is my world, which is why I guess I am ashamed that I am feeling useless and low. Hoping to make some new connections on here, and hopefully make some new friends
