Late at night, the house still, children sleeping, a heavy feeling of overwhelm felt like it was suffocating me. Exhausted and alone, I felt a deep sadness, a sense of guilt and fear all at once. To be honest, I wondered what it might be like to just sleep and not wake up. Tears falling, my body weak, I felt ashamed. I love my child, sometimes, the exhaustion, the loneliness takes over, I am overwhelmed. I gazed at my child lying peacefully asleep, silently and said I love you. Please help me find my strength.
