I can’t title this particular entry, nor record my current mood, because I have no idea what to say. I need to write, to vent, to get some of this awful crap out of my system, but I feel so numb that I can barely put words together.
Its been a day like any other. I woke up to both babies screaming at the top of their lungs. I talked on the phone, changed diapers, wiped noses, wished that I was somewhere else, wished that I could be alone for just five minutes. Tristan is being a total butthead, but then again, he’;s two years old, so I guess thats kind of like his job. Cassie has started to get clingy. She screams like someone is cutting one of her fingers off every time I turn my back on her. It is really hard to fall apart when you have two people who so badly need you to keep it together.
Feeling a great deal of guilt about my oldest son, Kai. He lives down the road with my mother. I left him with my father and stepmother when he was a baby. They kicked me out knowing that I couldn’t take him with me. I slept in my car for months. I got him back after awhile, but then I had two major breakdowns, one after another and very quickly lost him again. I know that I’ve screwed him up very badly. I know that he will probably never forgive me. I know that he is happier and better off with my mother. None of those things make me feel better, though, because I’ve failed my child, and I have to live with it.
