    Doing my sons homework this week due to the fact he is constantly overloaded with work and I think he deserves a break for a week just to be a kid after school!

    Trees - a monster wouldn't carry the guilt and shame you are. Your a normal mum having a rough time who is doing all she can to make it better.

    I agree you need to see your doctor ASAP and that's the first step. You will get better and I promise it will get easier.

    There are other options for getting a break aswell other than family I think you should think about to help make you feel better, eg 1 day of day care perhaps to let you catch up on sleep and sanity. Not sure of your financial situation but with rebates i think it's affordable particularly for one day. Or perhaps doing a babysitting swap with a friend. Just a couple of ideas.

    Trees, I remember once at 3am when my son wouldn't stop screaming, I got this urge to just throw him to the ground. It was such a powerful thought I wasn't even sure if I'd actually done it or not for a second. I just had enough in me to put him in his crib and take myself out for a breather.

    Your feelings and frustration are understandable. Many of us have been there. You know that you shouldn't have done it, you've done no harm (this time), and you've taken decisive action. You're not a terrible mummy. Good luck getting the support you need...

    Yesterday I had to go into the bathroom and shut the door and yell because I was losing it at ds who had been whining all day.

    I just lost it at screamed at my dd. Shes driving me nuts at the moment. Im finding this age so hard (Shes 3 in November)

    She seriously doesnt listen to a word i say. No matter what discipline method we use it seems to have no effect, like she doesnt care.

    She pushes my buttons like no one atm. Shes constantly doing things again and again that i tell her not to do.

    Rant over, i feel so crappy now. At least shes asleep so i get a break.

    Today im allowinf myself to not like my DS1. I love him, and will always love him with all my heart. But today I dont like him and don't want to be anywhere near him, I wish there was someone in my family who would come take him away for a couple of days so I can recharge enough to deal with his non stop attitude, tantrums and constant whinging and hurting his little brother.

    What a great idea this is...
    I constantly feel guilty for my 5yo ds who has autism. When he has a bad night he will scream and carry on and have a full on meltdown... It results in him waking his sister up but thankfully he doesn't wake his baby brother up... Some times I can handle the situation quite well but other times I will scream back or if I'm super tired I will let him get the better of me and I will show him how much he is upsetting me... I know he doesn't understand but its not fair of me to scream back at him and lose my patience with me.
    I also feel quite guilty at the fact that my dd doesn't get the attention she deserves from me right now.
    Lately I just feel so exhausted, trying to keep up with a 14month old and the high demands of my ds - I definitely have my bad days and breakdowns. Most days just feel so hard!

    I could have written this exactly. Me too!
