I feel like I'm going mad. Just hate my wonderful life at the moment. I'm just sad and confused inside. The boys (2.5yrs & 5yrs) are getting on my nerves too.
I left them with Dh today for a couple of hours because I just kept snapping at them. I have been run down this week (cold sore, headaches) and my appetite is very low or I feel hungry but don't want to eat (control??)
I have no one else to tell.
It's been an emotional week with a family member passing away from an illness and Ds doing prep orientation. On the outside world I'm sure others see me as this perfect mum with the perfect life.
I just hate not being more patient with the boys. I hate yelling. I hate the headaches. I hate not spending enough time with them.
I always feel like I'm cleaning, cooking, organising. It been so hard and draining this week.

I think I'm falling off the rails.

Sounds like you are worn out plain and simple and need to recharge your batteries. Can you go away for a weekend? If not, treat yourself to a coffee and a movie (at cinema) with popcorn. I get crabby with my boys sometimes and it's always because I am not getting the recharge time I feel I need.

I agree with VP, it sounds like you desperately need some quality recharge time, even if its just a couple of hours. Hugs xxoo

Dh will be home tomorrow. I'll talk to him about maybe taking the boys to Bunnings or something (it's going to be raining here). Dh is pretty good at stepping in when I seem like I'm not coping. It's just hard the days he works late or has something he needs to do.

I hear you and I only have one. It's amazing how even an hour of me time out of the house can help. It had to be out of the house so you don't look at stuff to be done or toys to be picked up. Get your hair done or coffee with a friend.
