 OMG! I feel so crazy anymore! for weeks now everything has been just bat shit crazy! I go non-stop really from morning til night... I get up early most mornings and don't go to bed til late at night, most nights after mid-night. And I swear I feel like my hell of a life is getting to me. All I do is take care of kids do house work and try and do college work, but the thing is that my college work ALWAYS comes last, like if i have time every day after fam and house is taken care of then i get to college work otherwise i'm very late at the end of the week playing catch up. I feel so stressed i don't even think i can put it into words right now exactly how i feel i just wish that i could some good time management skills from someone, because i just feel crazy that's how much i do and am always going, i swear the only time i get for myself is when i'm asleep, or going to sleep at night... I don't know what to do anymore... I could go on and on but i see no point at this point, so i'll go for now but i might be back later to add more venting to this post...

 Well yeah i See your point but at the same time I want to be sure that I can idk how do you say it, that i can do what i set out to do and if i'm not 100% sure of myself then that adds more stress to me... but life goes on anyway i suppose...

I worked FT and went to school FT with a baby, and 5 years later, did it again with a 5 year old and a 3 month old, still working FT.

How? DH was awesome and did a lot of the housework and child care. Put your man to work!

 Lol! Well See dh will now do house work all day long now since he's lost his job, but getting him to help with even one of the kids, like looking after jr or changing a diaper anything that is not breastfeeding the baby, well that's near impossible, i mean it would totaly be easyer and quicker to just do it myself than to fight with him to do it... Always having to do something for one of the kids is one of the main things that stresses me out anymore... I mean there is just never enough time in the day for everything that needs to or should be done... (thinking about it all makes me feel like a bad person. Maybe i'm over reacting but idk anymore)

 School is easy for me.  My son is what is hard.  He's so HYPER and he's not one of those kids that plays by himself.  School work is like a relief for me.  I'm working on my master's degree right now.

 lol. is there a dislike button hidding somewhere? I swear I wish there was.

Ya know I already feel totally crazy as it is, i mean i feel like i stress out to the point where i worry that i'm stressing out to much and making it all seem worse than it is, but I don't know how to relax anymore at all...

But yeah everything was ten times easyer before I had the baby, a lot is easyer with just one kid(my fault i know but still i'm just stating facts jack) ....

Just grin and bear it and make it through. If you have the will to make it through nothing will be able to stop you.
