I want to just walk out the front door

But I can't. My 2yo has been throwing bad screaming fits and breaking down over everything. I just can't take it. I can't brush my teeth, do the housework, anything. I just cry. I don't know what to do, nothing works, I've tried all I can think of to either calm him, or keep my sanity. I'm just letting her scream in her room. I'm still crying and a wreck, but at least I can do a dish without a monster kicking and screaming at me. Fuck.

I feel for you.  You can't reason with a 2 year old.  Maybe she just needs to cry it out a little.  Could she be coming down with an ear infection or something?  Take a few minutes and just breathe.  Eventually this will pass.  I've been where you are and it wasn't much fun.  Her anxiety may be feeding off of yours too so try to be as calm as possible.  Take care of you.

You did the right thing. Sounds like she's over tired. She'll fall asleep. You just relax your nerves, it happens.
