    Seems like you have a lot on your plate for your young age.

    You also sound like you have a good husband, which is hard to find these days.

    You do need some help, maybe some friends that can relate to your problems all around.

    We have a board for 'Depression' here, that has some really wonderful people there that would be able to offer some advice, and also be very supportive to you.

    Just click on the 'Message boards' link at the top of the page, and an index will come up, click on 'Depression' and your will be there.

    I sure wish you the best, and do hope that you are feeling better soon.........

    Shalom, Shirl

    Hi Burba!
    I remember having two little ones at home and how exhausting that was!! You need a break, and only another
    mother can understand that. I was lucky enough to find
    a babysitting co-op through my church. It doesn't cost
    anything. You just call one of the moms in the group to care for your kids so that you can get some time off! Do
    something for yourself or go out for a date with your
    husband without the kids.
    If you can't find one at church you can start one in
    your neihborhood starting with one other mother. You can
    also have playdates at the park which gives you a chance
    to talk so you don't feel so isolated. I hope this helps
    P.S. If you need more energy try Gensing and Ginko Billopa.
    God Bless! Carolynh8

    Well at least you have a good husband! I do think you should see someone though. I know it sounds weird or crazy, but it helps. Not to mention there are medications out there that can help with what you are felling.
