That I want to spend my birthday alone? I have 4 kids ages 8,5,1 and 6 weeks and they are so overwhelming. My baby cries unless she's being held... if I let her cry she chokes and throws up. My one year old is lashing out destroying everything he touches, he hits the baby and when we try to play with him or spend time with him runs away. The oldest two are always fighting and SO is always in a bad mood and yelling at the older kids. I spend the moment I wake up cleaning and cooking, doing laundry, carrying the baby, helping with homework, taking care of SO with no time to myself. I go without eating... I'm lucky if I have time to eat a meal a day. I go days without showering and on top of it all I have the stomach flu. I'm so depressed I'm on anti depressants but their not helping... my OB suggested therapy but I have no time for that. SO asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told him nothing but truth is I just want to be alone for at least 24 hours. No kids, no chores and no SO. I just want them out of the house. Is it wrong that I want to be alone for my birthday? Oh! I forgot to mention my birthday is Valentine's Day and my SO loves to celebrate it.
