    I'm a 28 year old married mother of two beautiful kids that drive me completely insane! They fight constantly, never listen until I scream and my husband doesn’t help at all. He's a whole other problem. I love him but sometimes I think I would just be easier without him. But then again I can't imagine my life without him. I've been through a lot these past two years. I got Married March 6, 2010 my dad passed away 10 days later and then 6 months later my grandmother passed away. All very hard deal with. I feel like I have no one to talk to about how I feel. I'm so busy trying to comfort my mom, kids and other family members I don't have time to deal with my own feelings. I find myself angry a lot and I don't know why. Sometimes I just wake up this way and other times it something as stupid as a toy or shoe in the middle of the floor I just cleaned. I guess I just need someone to talk to. I am so unhappy I need help to find peace in my life. I just have such a negative outlook on everything these days.

    Wow, as I read your post it was almost as if I was reading about myself. I truly understand how you are feeling, im still trying to figure things out for myself, and being able to talk to someone who can relate to your own problems seems to help alittle. If you would like to talk please feel free to message me, I could use a buddy also :)

    Hi Nicki, I feel exactly like you. Sometimes I feel headaches and neck pain. I've been trying to exercise and it works I feel more relaxed. I have two kids as well and sometimes I just snap, I feel stress but I don't know the cause. Did you find the roots of your frustration? We can talk and share ways to feel better and help each other.

      Dikabel, I don't know if the original poster found something to help or not - but I wanted to respond to you.
      Like every mother I know, I have been in the situation you're talking about. Sometimes feeling better is as simple as going for a run or plopping the kids in front of the TV long enough to clean the kitchen or drink a cup of coffee...other times, not so much. I found that yoga and talking helped me a great deal. I found a therapist - you've found this board (and a therapist is available here as well). I think you're on the right track.

    Losing your dad and grandmother in the same year, combined with the other stressors you mentioned puts your stress level and risk of depression high on the chart. The grief factor alone is huge. Only time can heal some things, but I have been through this with my wife. She lost both parents and her last grandparent in the same year. She stayed sad and dejected for a long time. I finally had to confront her about it and insist she get some help. I recommended to her that she get a counselor and read books on grief, grieving and loss. It is too much to expect oneself to deal with this kind of situation alone. Best to you.

    Many hospitals have free groups for bereavement and grieving.
