If you ever need an ear, just message me.  I feel awful all the time.  I started doing medical transcription in January 2012 in addition to being a SAHM.  I don't have contact with family because of issues started by my mother and I have no friends outside the internet now.  I have not had any holidays, weekends, or vacation days off since I was unemployed for 2 years.  I don't have time for extra things anymore.  I hurt every day from health problems and lately it is taking me about 2 hours to get out of bed after waking up.  I need to see a doctor, but can't afford it.

How old are your kids?  You need to delegate some responsibilities to them... if your youngest just started school, I'm going to assume your others are at least a couple of years older so they should be able to help with things like vacuuming, dusting, dishes, cleaning the kitchen and maybe even with cooking.

I am sorry you are having a hard time.  Are your kids old enough to help out with any of the chores?  Are there some that you can put off until tomorrow so that you can spend time with the family?

I totally understand, I have days (many) that I feel overwhelmed, too.

Welcome!

The first couple weeks are the hardest, and then you should find you are more in a groove. Good luck!

Welcome and hopefully you will settle into finding time for everything. I cut out everything that isn't necessary
