I have a three year old and a two month old. I love my kids, but lately I wish that I never had kids. I have no patenice anymore. I go back to work on Tuesday and my mil comes today and is staying for three months. I don't know how on going to handle all of this and I don't know if I want to anymore. Some days I wish o could just end it all and not deal with any of this anymore.

I am pretty sure everyone goes through spurts like that. I mean with a two month old? You may not even be sleeping through the night yet. I absolutely want a vacation from life right now. Just know it'll be temporary and let yourself sulk and breathe for a little bit. Then do what you have to do.

I can honestly say I know how you feel. I have a 3 yr old, a 10 month old and a 3 week old. Sometimes when I'm attending to the youngest the other two get on my nerves soo bad I just want to leave them. So I do. I leave them with my husband and I escape to my mothers with the youngest (since I'm his food supply EBF) We get through it. Just gotta find that coping method even if it locking yourself in the bathroom and blasting music for awhile you know.

thanks, i am taking a few moments for myself right now.  Hubby and the three year old are at the airport and the little one is in his bouncer.  im listening to music that makes me cry.  it helps sometimes.  i wish that i had friends or someone that i could talk to that understands what im going through.  i should be on medication for despression, but have not taken it in years.  I sholud probably think about taking it again, but my hubby does not want me to.  He does not understand how i feel.  To him, its just something that I have to snap out of.  i have had depression for about 15 years.

i have those days and it is very hard to continue. people say that things can't be that bad, well if it were true than alot of things wouldn't make us feel that way. Is it because we feel as if our time isn't expiring quick enough for us, or is it that mentally it's hard for us to bounce back after so much bad has happened. i am here for you because i can't do anything but fully understand what you are feeling.

 you might be surprised that when you go back to work it will be less stressful on you.especially with your mil helping. sometimes we just need that break from our kids.

The only problem with going back to work is I teach third grade. I'm with kids all day then come home to kids.

Your husband shouldnt be telling you to not take medication. That isnt up to him. You should see your dr next week and get on medication again.
