I have been super stressed and pretty close to my breaking point lately. I'm always tired and I just am anxious all the time. My therapist said that I was the most distressed she'd ever seen me last week and this week has been a little better, BUT the big positive news is that my babysitter who cancelled at the last minute on Wednesday when my husband and I had couples counseling is going to see my sons tomorrow night! That means that my husband and I get a date night!!! He needs a break just as much as I do. We're going to go to The Melting Pot for the first time. I know I like cheese and chocolate fondue, but it will be the first time with others.
The babysitter came about because my youngest keeps asking for her. He keeps yelling Stephanie Stephanie so I asked how she was feeling and I told her the boys were asking about her. I said my youngest really wants to see her and then we set something up for tomorrow. I know I will get to relax and that means that I'll probably sleep better (as long as the kids and the puppy cooperate).
Does getting a break help you?

The older he gets the more insecure, difficult, moody, irritable and super sensitive. I find myself constantly...
