Hey everyone. I am looking for some support and to hear from others who may be feeling this way. I have a 2 year old and an 8 month old and lately have been feeling not too great. I am getting overwhelmed and irritated and have yelled at my kids a few times which I feel so guilty about. I have always been a very calm, collected individual witha great deal of patience and have been losing my cool lately: feeling upset, overwhelmed etc mostly by my 8 month old's constant crying and just the demand from both kids at the same time. My husband works long hours and am usually doing everything myself. He doesn't seem to understand that I need a break away even if it's for 15 minutes. He takes for granted that he can shower, use the washroom etc in peace. Any advice, thoughts? I feel guilty for looking forward to returning to work but I feel like I'm going insane at home!!
