I've been having a real hard time lately in finding something to be happy about. I have a 3 year old son that I love to bits, but being both a stay-at-home mom AND a work-from-home mom, I feel like I never have any time to myself. Plus our geriatric dog and one of our 2 cats are struggling with health issues, my business seems to be going through a bit of a "growing pains" type of period, we're cat-sitting a friend's cat that seems to have decided to be fear-aggressive, and I've got my visit from Aunt Flo to deal with, too... which in itself is disappointing, because we've been TTC-ing for over 2 years now.

I seem to live in a constant state of anxiety and stress... which is not good as I work with animals, and they're picking up on my stress levels. I don't really have anyone to talk to, as my family lives in another province, and my closest friends here work long, late hours, so I can't really talk to them when I really need to vent.

I don't want to have to rely on antidepressants. I'll talk to a psychiatrist if it helps. I just feel isolated.

My husband is also a work-from-home dad, and works long hours, but he runs a store out of our house (the store is on the main floor, and we live above.) so I can't really sit and talk to him without having to run around making sure our DS doesn't re-arrange the store, or being interrupted by customers...
