So i am 32 and am feeling like i have lost the spice in my life and that everything I do is always focused on the children and hubby. I dont feel like myself anymore.
I am a stay at home parent and feel like i don't have a place in the world.
Does anyone else feel like this?

Yes i think it's more common than you think. Do you get any "you" time?

All the time. Im currently 31 weeks pregnant with no3 and feel very alone. Each day i just feel like im putting one foot infront of the other just getting through.
Do you have many friends or hobbies? I dont but i know it could help! Lol

I'd say I've lost my "spice" for life simply because I rarely feel excited about anything these days. I think when you're young and everything is yet to be done, each experience is exciting. there's not all that much left to look forward to in terms of new experiences now so I guess I don't feel that zest for life like I used to.

Get a small amount of me time but its usually night time and I go to the gym. I have a few friends but they all work during the day. I have hobbies but some days I just don't want to do them.

Spice for life?
I'll add that being a sahp is mentally draining and not for everyone. I'm 4 months in with my first and am finding it tougher than I thought. before ds I assumed i would love being a sahm. while it's ok some days, a lot of the time I struggle and find it very lonely and isolating. it's not always practical to see people every day so yes, those days stuck at home when baby won't sleep or keeps crying are hard. I'm going back to work in sept and am looking forward to it. I'm sure I'll hate it once I'm back and wish I'd enjoyed staying at home more

I'm not a SAHM but I feel like that a lot. I'm just "meh" about everything. It's the same thing day in and day out. Always trying to get through the day without much excitement. I'm just bored, tired and over it.
Sorry not really helping.

I so desperately want to return to work but sadly its not possible just yet.

I can somewhat relate, however I'm not a SAHP (I work full time).
Whilst I'm generally happy, I don't really have anything eventful to speak of, like ever! It's just work in the week, then have fairly low-key weekends. Rinse & repeat.
Like I said, I'm somewhat content, but when I really think about it I have little to nothing going on that's truly for me!

I'm 30+5 with number 3 and a full time sahm to DS2 (almost 4). I am definitely just going through the motions and have been for a while.
I get no me time and have no hobbies - nor can I even contemplate going back to work at the moment.
No suggestions but you're definitely not alone.
