So I'm currently in the process of trying to help myself given no-one else cares or wants to help me.
One thing I've so far been unable to help myself with is the fact that now every time I walk past the baby's room I just feel sad. I no longer feel the little spark of excitement that I used to feel. I just feel sad because I know I won't be able to cope with looking after the baby if I can barely cope day to day now. I think we'll have to employ a nanny to look after the baby cause DH works long hours & that makes me feel like I'll be such a terrible mother. All I ever wanted was to be a mother & now what kind of a life am I going to give the child? To be raised by a nanny & just have me read it a book every night & sing it songs? What kind of a mother is that?
I want to feel that spark of excitement again. I want the baby's room to be a happy place again.
I haven't been able to figure out a way of achieving this. Any ideas?
