“I’m so tired, I never get anything done, I’m so depressed, my head/back/neck/stomach hurts all the time, my kids are driving me crazy, my husband is no help, I feel like I am not doing a good enough job…ever. I’m just so… BURNED OUT.”
Does this sound like you? If so, keep reading. We have discovered a book written by Dr. Sheryl Ziegler that discusses the brutal honesty of motherhood and how many (if not all) women fall into depression, anxiety, and loneliness soon after becoming a “mom”. Dr. Sheryl Ziegler is a Doctor of Psychology and Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado and a member of the Colorado Association for Play Therapy and American Psychological Association. She lives in Denver with her husband and three children.
This book is written in a first-person perspective and is a very easy read. It is comforting to know that there are other women who are struggling with balancing everything from their marriage, to kids, to cooking and cleaning. Dr. Ziegler wrote this book to reach women of all stages of motherhood and let them know that they are not alone with these daily stressors. She also wanted to offer a way to stop this unhealthy cycle of mommy burnout (depression, envy, stress, anxiety). This book is a great gift for your mom, sister, friend, and for yourself.
