How old are your kids.  If they are old enough to be left alone, get in your car and go for a drive.  If you need to hire a babysitter and get out for awhile.  You need to have at least one day a month that is just for you.  I decided that when I was 38 and I was babysitting my grand kids and taking care of my dying dad.  My husband was over the road and only home a few days a month.  My entire life became kids and my dying dad.  I decided that I needed one day just for me, so I made it happen.  When the stress became too much for me and my doctor advised me to quit watching my grand kids my daughter did not like it.  She just left the next morning, leaving me with the kids.  My doctor told me that if she did it again to call CPS, and yes, I was living with her and her husband, and paying half of the bills.  It was amazing how quickly she found another sitter for the kids until she could find a day care she liked and worked with her hours!

You are going to have to take care of yourself if you went to be a good mom. That is all there is to it.

They are 9, 5, and 2.

The 9yr old has anger issues and doesn't sleep at all except maybe 4-5hrs Max and that's in increments.

I also take care of my mom and sister.

My better half just started a job today. Sigh maybe with him working I can make time now. It's just hard.

Lack of sleep is going to make everything harder.  Have you taken him to a doctor to find out why he is not sleeping?  I have anxiety issues and that was interferring with my sleep patterns.  His lack of sleep could have something to do with his anger issues too.  I am no doctor, just speaking from my own experience.  

So what is going on with your mom and sister?  Hugs.  I hope your family gets the help that you need.

My aunt is two faced and kicked my mom out while she was trying to get back on her feet and my sister is special needs. I have tried for a sleep study and insurance has denied it twice saying there isn't sufficient enough evidence that he needs one. He is on prescription sleep meds and that barely helps

Hope you're feeling better now.

Yeah. I feel ya. The whole wife/mom thing didn't really work out for me this week, either.

Yelling and screaming is doing no one any good

You have to calm down and get a hold of yourself before CPS comes and takes your children away and you won't have to worry about being mom anymore

Your mom and sister have to understand that your children come first and they can pitch in and help if they are living with you

As a mom, I think this happens to all of us at one time or another. I encourage you to find yourself some me time somewhere in your daily life. Relax and do something for self even if that means hiring a sitter.
