Is this normal or do I have a serious problem?!

With so much going on right now, I work full time, I have 3 boys, 3rd grade homework and social studies projects, daycare, cleaning, fall carnivals, cooking, fundraising, is it really horrible that sometimes I have fantasies that I have to be admitted to the hospital to catch a break?! Of course I don't REALLY want to get so sick I have to go to the hospital but sometimes I''m like, if I was in the hospital, nobody would bother me and I could sleep! Ugh ok that is bad!

  • That sounds nice, except in the hospital they'll wake you up every 3-4 hours to poke you with a needle or check blood pressure or something. One perfect uninterrupted night of sleep though, sigh, is a fantasy of mine.

  • Well, a hospital is a little extreme...and unfortunately you'd get the worst sleep thanks to nurses and roommates and visitors!

    But the wanting to get away? Oh, quite normal!

  • Of course its not bad. Those 'Calgon take me away' commercials were popular for a reason. Just this morning I was fantasizing about being put into the hospital for the same reason you're describing - to catch a break. My life isn't quite as busy as yours, but I have my own stresses that have me running ragged right now. I think its normal. Actually harming yourself in order to be admitted - not so normal lol.

  • Normal. Just taking a break seems like just not a mommy thing to do, but if you had a reason, (i.e. a hospitla stay) then you wouldn't feel guilt.

    In fact, maybe my cough should get looked at...........
