Feeling upset, alone, angry at the children and stressed all the time

I am 20 years old and I look after 4 kids. 1 of them is biologically mine and the other 3 are my partners. Two who are almost 2 years old, a 3 year old and an 8 year old. I got into the relationship a year ago and everything has been sweet since then. but recently Ive just felt anger towards the 8 year old and the 3 year old because of the talking back, the attitudes, the demanding of things .. the 3 year old can be worse at times and just scream at me on a daily basis to get what he wants.. I've spoken to my partner about it and he does all he can to help me but it still hasn't made me feel any different. Ive tried the no yelling, time out, take things off them when they do something bad etc and i also have time out for myself, listen to music, talk to friends to relax but it still seems so hard. I love my family with all my heart and I would never think about leaving, I just wish I knew how to calm myself more, I've even thought about talking to a doctor to see if im depressed.. but i feel if i do that , than people will think down of me.. My friends always reminds me that im a super woman for taking on a responsibility like this. I just dont feel super.
