I was wondering how many of you stay at home moms have trouble making it through the day? I have four kids (2,4,5,7) and I am the primary caretaker of them all. I for some reason have the most difficult time just getting through the day. Even when the kids are not fighting and are behaving well, I get really overwhelmed and stressed out. I do have a history of depression and anxiety that I take medication for but has not helped with this issue. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed, I have to have my husband come home early from work just so I could releave my stress. I seem to be less stressed when he is home just knowing that he is there if I need him. Being all by myslef with the kids with no one else is just too much for me. I also have no friends or family but my husband to talk to.
Don't get me wrong, I love to be with my kids, but I can't seem to tolerate being by myself with them. Does anyone have this problem?
