My DD is 9 but cannot walk, talk and is confined to a wheelchair. I have 2 older girls and 3 younger girls. 15,14,8,6 and 3. They barely get attention because I have to spend so much time wit their sister. I don't want my older ones to have to raise the younger as they are doing now and my husband wanted a big family before he left me a few years ago. He now doesn't even keep in contact. We're devastated and I'm worn out and having trouble keeping smiling everyday.
I hate asking for help. I'm embarrassed and I feel weird doing it because everyone said that it was our fault because we shouldn't have had more afterwards and should have devoted our lives to our 9 yr old DD but my husband thought that we should carry on with the plan of a big family. I love them all so much that I could never regret that decision but with him gone we just can't cope. I barely make it through each day and I'm often ill and run down,
Anyone can suggest anything or tips??
I'm sorry about how much this may be incoherent. I'm just tired and grumpy and probably sound like an idiot.
