I don't want to go out...

I don't know what's going on with me recently. Every day I have good intentions to go out with the kids and take them to a group and get some exercise for myself, but I can't seem to get motivated. I end up staying in nearly every day. To be honest I look outside I feel a fear about going out, I don't know why. Some days when I do manage to venture out I'm ok, but most days I don't want to and I feel like I'm being unfair on the children. I didn't used to be like this. What's wrong with me?

Ok...I think the first step would be to be sure there is no medical condition that you do not know you have.

Next, would be to maybe try and talk to someone, like a therapist. They would know about sudden changes in behavior and possible phobias.

Whatever is going on, it is definitely something to take seriously. Even the doctor may have some ideas.

I have found in my experience, that it is not usually good to speculate. Doing something about it not only makes us feel better, but prevents our mind from thinking crazy things.

I got like that after the birth of my last baby. I felt tired all the time and just felt generally down. I didn't want to speak to anyone either. I just ended up snapping out of it eventually and went back to how I was before, but if you feel like it's anything more then it may be worth a visit to the GP.
