We are on our long summer break so home with kids. I find I am not coping well. Failing big time as a mum with the way Ive been treating the kids. Sometimes I will sit there and think I just cant do this anymore. Life is too hard. I just need prayer to overcome and wisdom for what sort of help I need with ongoing anxiety/depression.

y[-o< y[-o< y[-o< For Ness!

My dad suffered all my childhood with terrible depression. Lots of prayer, a good physician, loving friends from church, taking better care of himself, getting good rest - he slowly overcame it. In my mid-20s I came under tremendous stress and anxiety, to the point that virtually EVERYTHING bothered me. Doc wanted to put me on tranquilizers. It kind of snuck up on me. But I began a much better diet, quit coffee, got good exercise, and did all I could to eliminate stress, more sleep, etc. If I had urgent matters, I just made myself go at as a relaxed pace as possible. It took awhile, but I eventually got well. In my family, I think there is a genetic disposition for it. For my mom as well - but more from anxiety, and 5 kids :shock: . A mom needs some breathing room - AWAY from the kids, at least in increments.

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
-- Philippians 1:6

Prayers certainly do help, but please don't discount that it may be your hormones that are making you anxious. You are at that age now, you know. :knitting:

Even men can have hormone deficiencies too.
