  • I take a mommy break. If my kids are driving me nuts I place them in the playroom close the door and take 10-15 minutes to myself.

  • Go to a damn therapist that can help you with the stress. Go take a class on different discipline. We ALL told you that.

  • again, I see you. I have called a crisis hotline before when I just couldn't handle one more thing. It is a person to talk to, to cry to, to just tell someone how hard it is. Nothing bad happened. Just telling the universe you are topped out reallly helps.

    Skills from your family of origin are not working for you~getting some new skills will help. Soon things will get easier. What good thing have you done for yourself today? I'm glad your posted your stuff today...sorry I was harsh...dang if the world isn't harsh to us all though~

  • I think if most people are honest you'll find that everyone "loses it" to some degree on occasion. Whether it's money, family, work, everyone has challenges to deal with. I have no problem with saying that although I work really hard at keeping it together, there have been times when there was more than I thought I could handle.

    When my boys were little the economy was bad here in Ca., my husband worked in aerospace & was laid off for months, we'd just bought a house, my ex was taking us to court, there was no money in the bank, I had 3 little boys at home, & the middle 1 had some special challenges. I had no family to help out, & I can remember 1 day just sinking down on the kitchen floor & crying. I thought about how it would feel to just walk out the front door, & leave all of my problems behind.

    I didn't do it.I cried, then got up & did what I had to do to keep things going, things have gotten better, good friends help

  • WALK FAST until I can barely breath. Or when it's cold out (I'm a wimp) type out everything I think and feel. Gets everything out without me having to apologize to anyone.
