Motherhood can be a very lonely place as all your energy is used to take care of your kids. I often wonder how other mothers cope. A support system, talk therapy, drugs and spiritual counseling can help, but what I really believe what many mothers lack is not being able to honor themselves and their needs. I know this because this has become my exact problem. Not having any time with my husband, friends and my writing leaves me feeling very frustrated. My boys have both battled more flu and colds than I would like. Taking care of a sick child while you’re sick also is more than a notion.

Motherhood is a rewarding thing.

Fathers suffer with Post Partum issues
Special to The Brand New Mommy, Kimberly Batchelor Davis
The interesting thing about being a mother is that so much attention is given to women. Men have a harder time expressing themselves and/or finding an outlet to release their frustration. You might say this is common knowledge, but my husband after listening to me gripe and moan asked “Do you hear my concerns? Do you understand my frustrations?” I think he was tired of seeing me cry like a little girl. However, to be fair to him he was having his own meltdown.
