I'm posting anon here because I feel bad enough as it is and don't need pm's telling me that I'm horrid.
I became a SAHM when dd was 3 months old. Since then, I get little time to myself. I'm at the point where I have no empathy for her crying but cannot just let her sit there and cry either. (not that I will do any of this) I feed like putting her on the porch and walking back inside and locking the door, tossing her across the room, punting her like a football, screaming back at her, smacking her upside the head...
NO, I will not do any of this but it does cross my mind every hour. When DH takes her, I still have a 5 yr old that wants my attention.
I have already scheduled 4 hours on Sat for DH to take ALL of the kids so I can have time away from all of them but I'm afraid that it won't be enough. I'm burnt out and want to leave for a week...not really an option since we ebf and she has a hard time taking a bottle.
Even now, can hear her making noises during her nap and I'm calling her every name in the book in my head.
I don't have PPD as I am generally happy when I'm not with kids.
Ideas on how to get rid of these feelings?

feeling like you have no time for self- normal
your thoughts not normal
seek some help
imo- having these vivid thoughts is not ok and a big huge red flag
