An update to my original post in December: I am a mother of 2 under 4 in her early 30s. I am a very angry person. I yell at my kids all the time. I have tried so hard to stop. The more I try and stop the more it all just erupts by the end of the day. I have always been an impatient person. But ever since my second came along I am extremely irritable all the time. Everything annoys me. Especially sounds. I find myself overwhelmed and stressed over every little thing. I can't find any motivation. I am tired all the time. I have almost daily headaches. I love my children...I love my husband. I should be a very happy person. Why am I so angry and sad? I don't think I am depressed. I don't want to hurt myself. I do have low moments. But isn't to an extreme. I want to be a better mother so badly. Every night I go to bed and say tomorrow I will not yell and be happy. Never happens. I feel so awful about myself. What is wrong with me? Where can I go for help?

I went and saw my doctor in December and described how I was feeling. She felt like I had an anxiety disorder. So she prescribed me 20mg of Celexa once a day. I have been on it a month now. She said it could take a month to feel any difference. I think I feel a little more calm. Not a huge difference though. I see her again next week for a follow-up.
I am angry all the time too. I don't know what to do with myself. I am in a similar situation I have two two year old step daughters and a loving husband. I have no money and no car but I have a lot to be grateful for. Maybe you should make a gratitude list. Today I am grateful for:

my husband
my job prospects
my intelligence
my dog
my cat
my video games
my computer
my internet
my therapist
my husband again
my bed for being comfy
my cable
my being alive
the weather not being too cold

I can't really think of anything else but at least I have a few maybe you do too.
