Just after a bit of advice. Im a mum of 2dc 1 of which has sen, dh works 12 hour days 5 days a week, inc weekends, I'm at uni doing a full time law degree. Between looking after the house, washing, cooking, attending things at school/nursery and doing uni work i never ever seem to have a minute. It feels like I'm on the go all the time and I'm beginning to feel anxious all the time, i don't know if its stress? i wish i had time to do more fun things with the dc, we do go out and do things but there always seem to be a list of things waiting to be done before or after. Im just hoping it will get easier as i never seem to see dh anymore and i feel bad for my dc but I'm only doing it for their future. just wondered if anyone else feels the same and if anyone has any suggestions to combat the stress/anxiety/tiredness that i always seem to feel

It's completely normal and not at all surprising given what you're trying to fit it. Can you afford any help with cleaning/laundry etc

It's his it is when you are trying to shoe horn lots of different things into life. You sound like you are doing great.
I did less than you, and found it really full and stressful. But yes, it gets easier as your kids get older.
Sounds like you need to do something with the anxiety though. Headspace app does 10 minute meditations, great for stress.
