is there any way you can have a break then? just a couple of days alone. you seem like a lovely person from what ive read .
you have a dd who loves you and need to focus on that.
dont worry about the house, it may be messy but its not the be all and end all. it can be done when you are feeling better
do you have any other family other than yr mum and bro who could maybe help out?

sweetmonkey Thu 30-Jun-05 09:34:52

oh ,bro on way to pick me up ..thank you for listen ing ,,i just have to grin a nd bear it after all i wasnt born cos they wanted me i was an accident! mum was 47 ,and ive just been a useful girl to look after eevry one so tough on me,................................

well you sound like an angel to me and please dont do anything silly. i will always listen if you wanna chat even about the tiniest thing ,

im just sorry i couldnt be of more help. just remember that you are a mum now and regardless of whether you were planned or an accident you have yr family and 3 lovely kids and a dh, you are stronger than you think and will get through this. i wasnt planned either and have alwasys lost out to my younger bro who gets everything. i guess its life, we just have to accept that we may not have been the most importnat kids to our parents but it also makes us better people because we will learn not to treat our kids in the same way.stay positive

take care

AAA - this all sounds far too much for you.

Stop being the rock for your brothers - especially if they are all older - let them stand on their own two feet, and start leaning on dh a bit.

IMO, your only 'job' is to be there for your DDs - and your mum as and when you can.
