I'm at home with one child who is sick and another who is a hellion sick or healthy. She's healthy right now but what does it matter? Neither listen and I can feel myself coming down with something. I am out of ideas, strength and patience. They need naps, they won't take naps, no matter how many times I put them in their rooms, bribe them, make quiet time, make demands. I'm so sick of this shit, I really am. Everyone has been sick, taking turns with something since the end of November. There is no one I can call. I've tried to stay grateful, grateful that we live in a country where we have access to medicine, grateful I can be home taking care of them, but quite frankly, it feels like a curse at this moment. They're 4 and 2 years old and impossible.
What do you do when you're at your wits end? They're in their rooms at this moment screaming and I don't even want to face them. I wish I could leave the house. I feel like I've been trapped in an insane assylum. I am so SICK AND TIRED!
What can I do? Please reserve any negative judgement...I already feel like a failure. I really need to know what to do so that they aren't traumatized for life.
