Sometimes I have the urge to take my kids to their father, who has not seen them for two years, and just walk away forever. It's not them, they are truly great. I feel overwhelmed with depression. It's now gotten to the point where i am researching this on the internet. I know my thoughts are not normal, and I don't understand it. I think they could be better raised by someone else, who does not wallow in depression every day. I also feel I could finally do whatever I want. It is a horrid selfish thought, and I want to know if anyone else feels like this, or what to do about it.

I dont know what to do about it but I to all the time feel like that. I feel I could just dump him to his gradparents and be done with it. I think we need to gain controll over our lives and get back our self confidence. I dont know its just a thought.

Do you realize what you are saying. You have all the reason to be happy. You have that little person(s) in your life. Children are great at lifting depression and they wont let you have too much time for feeling sad. Look through their eyes and the world will change for you. It did for me, also remember to take it one minute and then one day at a time.

I agree with Shari. You have kids in your life. Do you know how many mothers out there are infertile and can't have kids.

Please don't leave your kids with your husband indefinitely b/c as many have seen....the father gets attached to them and then will not let them go...before you know it you will be going through a custody battle for them.

Count your blessings he is not around.

Lizzie!

Sweetheart! If you love your little one (s), please go talk to someone about how you feel and if it is nessary, then please get on medication, at least temporarily, until you are feeling like yourself again! There is nothing wrong with seeking help and taking anti-depression medication. As a matter of fact, you owe it to your little one (s) and to yourself to do so QUICKLY! There is no need to "drop them off" for someone to take care of. It just sounds like you need to reach out to a best friend or family member for the interum and get some "Lizzie Time" to regroup and just please go talk to a Dr. about what type of medication would work for you! Do not let this stop you if you do not have insurance! There are several programs where you live to get you through this!
