Before I start please excuse my typos,double letters and random periods I'm on from my phone and it likes to make me look stupid.

I am beyond overwhelmed right now and I get no help. I am the only one taking care of a house of 7. Me,dh,4kids.and my dad. Can someone please explain to me why the other 2 adults in the house don't feel like they should help?! It's nor that I mind.doing it but add the rest.of the shit I have going on and its too much. I don't sleep much because I have a 10 month old who has.to be fed every 3hrs 24/7 plus he's.got medical issues that drs can't figure out which means we have at the very least 2dr appts a week. I hurt constantly because I have a messes up knee and a bulging disc/pinched nerve in my back. My 5yr old is a handful. She's.got more attitude than a teenager ans when she doesn't het what she wants she pees on herself. My oldest has an attitude that is like day and night. One moment he's sweet and loving and the next he's pissed and screaming at his brother. Im running on like 4hrs of.sleep.since Friday ams I'm ready to crash and burn. But I have an in home appt this am for my youngest to set up therapy so I can't sit down and relax. I spent all.day yesterday cleaning sonic wouldn't have to do it this am and I wake up to my living room a mess because my dh left crap.in the floor before he went to bed last night and my DD got up before anyone else this am and drug toys out and left them there and the cat tore up.some paper and the bird decided to sling seed all.over the place. Im so tired and I never get a moments peace. I think if I were sleeping or not hurting I could handle things a lot better.
OK. I feel better. Im.sure that sounds like the ramblings.of a crazy.woman since its all jumbled but I had to get it out. Thanks for reading :)

you seem to have quite a bit on your plate. Maybe go on "strike" for a few days? 

IDK though I have done that and it didn't work but I did start going on a rampage once and it got everyone moving in my house.  I had just had enough, you can only take so much right? 

I'm sorry I hope everything gets better for you.

I've gone on strike before. The only thing it resulted in was a bigger mess for me.to.deal.with later. Thanks :)

Hun, Im sorry yr going through this, there is one thing i hate the most is disrespect and it sounds like this  is  a huge issue in your family  and it doesn't help w/yr low on sleep and all....i guess i would suggest making  chore chart and see how that goes?  gonna have to start making ppl be more accountable and for your dd i would start with consequences because having  girls myself if you don't knick the diva attitude now it will only become worse!  HUGS

That is a great idea! I think.I'll do that after the therapist leaves today. I do set consequences for DD but nothing seems to work! I've tried everything I can think of to the point now when she does it I take 30 mins off of bed.time. yesterday she went to bed at 530! Bed time is 8. She's all.attitude and I just don't know what to.do anymore.

part of your problem with your dd is she sees the way the other adults treat you.

I am new here just read the first post complaining about caring for a house of 7....my response....STOP IT!  if you dont do it who will?  It may be hard at first, but you have to hold back....you will be happier in the long run......the only people you are responsible for are you and your kids under the age of 18 (sometimes even 14 to 15 year olds can do things themselves).  As for adults who do not help...they are lazy!!!  If you keep doing for everyone they take advantage!!!!  Or worst yet when asked to do something the do it wrong on purpose so you won't ask them again.....take a vacation and see how they fend for themselves

Lets go! Somewhere tropical where we can get drinks out of coconuts with little umbrellas
