I recently files for divorce from my miserably poor choice of a man that I allowed to impregnate me with two boys! Not only that.... I just lost my job on Thursday!!! I think I'm going to die!!! I can't get myself together, I'm dealing with spiteful abuse from d'ooshy and these kids are driving me to the brink!! I feel my chest getting tighter and tighter each day.. its gone from bad to worse!!! How can o regain some structure and control in my home without being a raging lunatic!!!??

Therapy?
Support group?

They both helped me, but I understand that not everyone is able to do that.

It does get better, but it takes a lot of time and a ton of work.

My son was 7 when his dad kicked us out. The fights, tantrums, name calling...it was horrific. There was all sorts of behavioral regression. It's been about 15 months and it's finally getting back to normal.

Give all of you some time to readjust. You have to figure out a new normal. It's never going to be the same, so you have to figure out what your new reality is going to look like.

So sorry for your troubles. Breath deep. Take the kids to the park or hiking trail and walk with them and look at nature. There is nothing to do right at that moment that cannot wait. The boys feel your anxiety and stress and process it deeply. What seems like bad behavior is really just reaction to what is going on. All this will work out but will take time. Hang in there.
