last night, i took 2 sleeping pills to help me sleep (i was on my 4th day of being awake)... today, i woke up in a HORRIBLE mood. plus i feel like i'm STILL on the sleeping pills- groggy, disorientated.. slightly drunk (i move my head and it takes a while for things to focus again)...
DS is acting his normal self... but i'm getting irritated at him. i was watching a movie where a guy was swimming in the ocean and DS asked 7 times- literally- if there were sharks in the water. i answered all 7 times with a No. he kept asking! i yelled no and to stop asking. its to the point where i just want to spank him... right now, he's putting the videos up that he was playing with--- a normal event for him, but my frustration from my feeling/mood is rubbing into my parenting. i NEED to get away from DS- i feel it. just to get myself back in order so i dont lash out on him- even with a simple yelling.
i feel like i overdosed on the sleeping pills, but they are only 25mg (so i took 50mg) and that was at 7pm last night (at the time i'm writing this- its 3pm, so its been 20 hours.)
i dont know what to do. i dont want to lash out at DS, i dont want to yell at him... but i'm a single mom and i have no friends/family who'll help me with him. his biodad is in rehab and his family is all on drugs (heroin/cocaine) so even if i wanted their help, i'd never take DS there.
how do i lower my frustration level? i'm not like this-- i want to blame those stupid pills... but i dont even know if its still in my system.. i mean, its been almost 24 hours since i took them....
DS is 5 years old. his bday was in Oct... not sure if that would help any
