You are not alone. You can always come here and talk to us. It may take us a minute or two to get to you, but someone will always answer.

How old is your baby? If the birth is relatively recent, within 1-2 years or so you could be suffering from post-partem depression. Talk to your doctor. There is medication that can help. You could also be suffering from a chemical imbalance - please get checked. I would also strongly urge you to go to counseling. No shame in asking for help. A therapist can really help with the feelings of sadness, and it will also help you to better understand yourself and be a better parent.

You mentioned mind sharing what they are? It may make you feel better if you talk it out with us. It may feel like life is passing you by, but you have the power to change this. Write out the things you want to change and start working on the things you feel are the most easiest for you to change - like going to your doctor and telling him/her how you feel. If you have any friends or family nearby, talk to them. Don't isolate yourself and don't lose hope.

Remember, your baby needs you and your baby will ALWAYS love you. Whenever you start to feel sad, think of him and the immense love you have for him. And like I said, you can always come here and talk to us. I hope this helped and I hope to hear back from you soon.

lord have mercy. I hope not. I choose to be happy now. I have spent many years of my life being sad... I refuse to spend my golden years sad.. I do what is best for me and forget the naysayers. because as long as I am sad everyone else seems to be fine. when Im happy people don't like it. y? I really do not know..i just know that everyday is a brand new day that god gives and I am not going to waste them anymore.

Don't give up- you have a great hope and future with your baby- someone to love your whole life through! Maybe also someone else might come along- I believe God sees us all and will help if you ask Him to-ask Him to help you see His way of Life and have the strength to follow it- things will get better if you can do that- I am struggling with a problem now and have not overcome it (yet) but if I yield myself to my Father He will help and not give me something I can't bear and He will help you too-just do the best you can to walk with Him and stay true and always ask for His help!
