Anothermom,

My heart goes out to you! Like Solalux said, I really think it would help you to befriend other moms. I know there must be mom groups - maybe meetup.com, church, etc. A lot of moms will "swap kids" for a day to help each other out, and just having the support of another mom to talk to would really help you I think. It might take a while before you find other moms you feel comfortable enough with to open up to, but don't give up.

To give yourself a break, see if there's a "Mom's Day Out" group in your area. They are much more affordable than traditional child-care. Many are church sponsored, but you don't always have to be a member to take your child. Here's a little info on it: Mom's Day Out

Wishing you the best. smile
