Going to have a breakdown

So I come in from a terrible day at work, to my son acting up... already nearing a breakdown with all that is going on in my life right now.. 

Got on facebook to a message from my X's former mother in law telling me her grandson (my son's half brother) was born this morning, and when am I going to bring my son to the hospital.. I replied with I'm not taking my son to the hospital.(. the father is not involved in my son's life at all, and will not be involved in this child's life, due to him being in jail for beating the mother with a baseball bat when she was 4 months pregnant.) She replied with "Why not"

None of your damnn business that's why not. I didn't respond that, so I just told her that her daughter and I had already discussed this, and I don't think it's in my son's best interest..

He's only about to be 3, and I don't want him to know anything about how babies get here.. He will meet his brother next weekend after mommy and baby have been home and settled in. And to be honest, I haven't fully coped with the fact that I can't have anymore babies, and here my son is with a brother. I will never be able to carry another child to full term and I always thought the only way my son would have any siblings would be if I had a baby.. which wasn't happening.. So no, I don't want to go to the same maternity ward I was in three years ago, her baby in the same hat and onsie my son was in, her son sharing the same father as mine, chancing the doctor coming in while I'm there, who is the same doctor I had during my L&D or chancing my son's doctor coming in, who is now her son's doctor too.. There are just some things I'm not ready to deal with..

I feel stretched to the limit, and I'm going to have a breakdown.. loser X is filing for visits of my son, but he's a dangerous man, so I have consultations with different lawyers set up everyday next week.. two on Wednesday.

My son is having behavior problems, not normal 3 year old problems either.. his pedi has suggested he see a behavioral specialist AGAIN. We went through this when I left his father 2 years ago.. only to be deemed that his anger was normal back then..

My SO and I are drifting apart, with us both in the midst of custody battles, but under different circumstances.. we are both under a lot of stress

I'm about to lose the only babysitter I trust, because my job is over riding my availability and making me work weekends.. I'm unavailable on the weekends!!

I feel so overwhelmed with everything..



UH OH! I just watched the little devil from my left shoulder, drop kick the little angel off my right shoulder.. This can't be good.
