I am about to give up

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I am seconds from crying
I am frustrated
I am exhausted
I am anxious
I am depressed
And I have the most beautiful little girl who relies on me
We are at my friends who has a 3 year old little boy
I am trying to get my daughter down for a nap and he has woken her up 3 times
I became so overwhelmed with emotions that I yelled at the kid and told my daughter I was about to give up
This is the first time I have ever said anything like this
I feel horrible!

Please, someone tell me I am not a horrible mom!

Help me!

How can I calm down and relax?

How can I keep myself from doing this again?

I don't think I will, but the possibility is overwhelming me...

Anyone else ever feel like this?

It sounds like he is being a normal 3 year old and that you're upset and misdirecting your anger towards them. Can you guys take a drive, then hopefully the kids will sleep but you're still being social?

She has tried
He is usually pretty good
He isn't really loud he has just gone up to her and taken her blanket, hit her with a toy he threw and such

Quoting meparty:

breathe.   Ask your friend to quiet her son down?

I've been depressed
My brothers anniversary is coming up
And my meds are being messed with

What is causing you to be overwhelmed? other than the kid acting up.....it seems there is more going on.

I understand that
The littl boy is taking my daughters blanket and throwing toys at her
So should he not get in trouble for that
I should go home because of that
If thats the way it is I should never have him over or come here or go see my family

Quoting LoveMyLos:

Go home then. Its that kids house, not yours. Smh

yes. but i'm sure it's hard for all you young dumb moms to believe that a 3 year old should be able to chill out for an hour.

Thanks I plan on it

Quoting Firewoman33:

I've been there. Take a nap with your daughter and forgive yourself. That will help you immensely!

I'm sorry.  I really am.  I have been there.  Right now you just need to do something that makes you feel as comfortable as possible until the feeling passes.  Belive me when I say I understand how you feel and if you ever need to talk you can PM me if you like.  I'll talk you through it.
