    I hate that phrase. People can and do regret the kids they have. For many reasons.

    My mum totally regrets having more than 3 (has 5). She adores all of us, and never treated us differently. But she regrets it all the same.

    One thing that stops me from doing anything is the fact that there is No way of knowing for sure that they will be better off without me.

    What does your son say pointless1? I am not proud of this but I have broken downs few times in front of my children lately and My children say that what is making me a bad mum is the fact that I think i am one. If only I didn't feel like such a failure for them. I try so hard not to feel like this but life truly sucks ATM.

    May be this isn't my place to say, but my mother committed suicide 20 years ago.

    I have never felt grateful that she left, or that she might have thought my life would be better without her. Instead, I feel an overwhelming sense of rejection and loss. That the love I felt (feel) for her wasn't worth just hanging in there. It's a loss that has left me feeling lesser to and separated from everyone else in my life, even now.

    Even at her worst, I loved her and wanted her.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us lubdub. It certainly gives perspective and a bit of a wake up because I would never want my children to feel like you felt/feel ( big virtual hugs to you).
    I am not making excuses, but It is really is hard when you are so depressed to think clearly.
