My life is generally great have two beauiful ds's and a great dp but recentley had to reshuffle childcare,saving to move,saving for a wedding and I have started to get down and its really started to affect me,and those around m,to the point I cant be bothered with the effect of saving and arranging a wedding.

Im tired,moody,snappy,no patience with people or my children ,angry all the time,paronoid about not being a good mum ,wanting to please everyone but making myself miserable in the process.

I have previously avoided going out with friends,I sometimes drink alone or drink more than I should but not to the point of being drunk,just so I can sleep as i'm having major problems sleeping.

I am hardly eating somedays or overeating and I dont know where my periods have gone to, and Im in pain everyday with my back should I go to the doctor.

I would say more stress/anxiety at the moment but if left to boil it can easily deteriorate into a downward spiral of depression.

Dont shoot the messenger here but, have you done a pregnancy test?

You are under a lot of stress but I remember feeling hellish at the start of both my pregancies before even the morning sickness kicked in, so if your periods are playing up, better safe than sorry. And yes definitely go to the doctors, and try to get some space for yourself too.
