I actually have been feeling like that a lot lately. I feel like I'm falling apart, unraveling at the seams and I have no idea what to do about it. I'm a single mom, so I can't just leave it up to her dad to take care of her while I get my shit together. I'm working on scheduling a few days off just to try to relax and refresh.
I've been there. My breakdown after having my 3rd child is what prompted me to much more aggressively pursue getting OUT of my current job - and finding something that would take some of the stress off.
I repeatedly feel this way. Right now I'm doing ok. But when I came back for maternity leave my boss got mad at me because I wasn't available 24/7. I got yelled at because I couldn't cover someone else's shift. That makes no sense to me. Things are better now, but I know it's just a matter of time before I get overwhelmed again. There's a lot of pressure on women to do it all and have it all. It's hard and we are hard on ourselves.
I always feel like this
Sounds like my current reality. However, I have 2 kids and I certainly don't have the luxury of quitting my job while I figure it out. Pretty sure most of the women here are in that same boat!
(and my likes aren't likes- they are more like "you aren't alone, mama! I feel that way too!")
Sometimes. Especially times like right now where DH breaks down as well. Then I feel like a single parent to 3 kids :(
