The pressures of being a mum are hard particularly now I’ve gone from 2 to 3. I thought I was obligated to return to work so I did so when my youngest turned 9 months. Now I’ve recently moved homes and moved jobs. The stress and pressure of moving, living in a new unfamiliar area, new job, new people, essentially new life I found I was at breaking point. I’ve made the tough decision and I’ve quit my job. Although the money comes in handy my kids come first and they were suffering. I’m going to enjoying spending more time at home with them and start concentrating on my own health and mental well-being

  • So pleased for you that you’ve found the courage to make this decision. And perhaps you can look at doing some sort of work from home, whether in a business for yourself, or for someone else. Good luck!

  • What a brave decision you have made. Happy and healthy mum equals happy family I was always told and I think it’s true. I would love to do the same thing but can’t as I’m the sole earner. One day I will find a way :)
