I am a mother of 4. I have a 10 year old who is autistic and had ADHD. Also a 5, 4 and 2 year old. Between money problems, the kids, doctor appointments, I also work full time I am so stressed out that I get so angry and I yell and scream and I don't want to be that mom!! I'm so tired of yelling at my kids and getting so frustrated with them because of the 5 million other things going on in my life!! I need help. I do not have time to go to talk to someone and when it comes to me talking about things doesn't help what am I gonna talk about I don't make enough money or it's hard having an autistic child with 3 other children in the house. I don't need to talk I just need something to make this stress and anxiety go away or make it so I can breath and deal with it. What are your suggestions?
What you need is someone to watch the kids for a weekend so you can go hide. Do you get ssi for your child who is autist? My dtr was almost in your shoes except its her youngest who is autistic. My eldest grandaughter had cancer at 13 too. So it was dealing with all tjat too. Jake really wears my dtr out. Seriously tho do you have someone who could take them for a few hrs to give you a break?
Yes, stop saying you do not have time and make time. This is life and it has the habit of coming at you like this. You CAN make time to take time, an hour a week for yourself and find a group to share with, when you listen and make an effort to help someone else who may have it worse than you do, and they're out there, you take your mind off yourself and it's amazing the resulting calm that results.
You will be surprised what you can do (for yourself) if you set your mind to it. Proof? Look at all you're doing now. Turning to a medication is not the answer.
