The monster in the closet is scratching at the door. I've been holding it closed as hard as I can but it gets stronger and stronger. I am just not good enough.
Too many things happening at once and feeling overwhelmed. Being a burden. Being a bad wife and mother. Creating more stress in an already stress-filled now. Why can't I fix this?
Scared about money, about losing my job, about damaging my children with my alternating apathy and rage. Feeling like I'm alone even when everyone is around me. Feeling selfish. Not strong enough.
Not strong enough.
Not good enough.

I know it will get better. I just can't see better from here. Yet.
