So my SD has been living with my DH and I for a little over a year, and sadly it hasn't gotten any easier. She is a very smart kid, yet also extremely difficult and she is only 6. I have also been going through my own issues of extreme deppression and trying to still be a good wife and mother. I also have a SS who does not live with us, but my DH wants him with us but I don't think I can handle another child right now. I can't even begin to articulate the struggle going on inside me right now. I understand that my DH wants his son, but I also know I literally can't handle it. I work each night, possibly get a couple hours of sleep in the morning get woken up continually by my DH or SD. I almost never get more than 2 hours of consecutive sleep in a day. My DH isn't working (he gets his GI benefits for school), I am financially supporting the family, in charge of the; finances, planning any type of family stuff, groceries, laundrey(DH has been doing more of that), cooking, etc. ...To say the least I am tired and the idea of having another child in our little condo would completely break me.
Am I being selfish? Will it ever get better?
