I hate my family sometimes. They arent supportive at all. I ask for my sister to take one or both of my boys for a night..so I can catch up on sleep and have some peace and quiet. She said I got myself into this position. Yet a week ago she said she doesnt know how I do it.. single with depression..and with 2 young kids. Barely scraping by and in February facing homelessness. Wtf is wrong with my family?

Sounds like maybe they are too caught up in their own lives to care about others...? Sorry.

I know how that goes. Lol. My son watched elmos kids faveorite songe from 9am to 5pm when daddy got home. At least now somehow the disc got lost (fist pump!) If you have a friend who also has kid(s) you could try something like you take hers for a night and she takes yours every now and then. That way you both win

Sorry! Sometimes family can be such a pain! Although I have the opposite problem! Everyone wants to babysit my daughter and keep her over night and the grandparents get mad when I say no! My dh works nights so weekends are our only family time!

Well at least your family talks to you. Even when my mother lived 20 minutes from me she wouldn't visit and she only called when she wanted something.
