I am away alone with the children. Had very little sleep for two nights. Kids being very difficult. Staying near unhappy memories. Losing the plot.

That sounds very hard. I don't know your situation - perhaps others on here do? I hope you'll get some useful support.

Do they need you at night? Can you buy some Kalms or Sominex

Try Recue Remedy too

Can you call a friend and just tell them what is going on?

Get them to lie down with you. Tell them you'll all have a better day tomorrow if you get some sleep.

DS1 has been awful to DS2 and DD today, and did something to me that he knew would upset and scare me. We are now back at the hotel and the only thing stopping me from driving them home right now is my FM wants to see us in the morning.

Maybe stick to one of your threads FAB instead of posting bits on both.
