I know how you feel, sometimes I look around my house and think bloody hell, how is it such a mess, all I feel like I do is pick up stuff. I've a 2 year old and baby and honestly it feels like I'm living in a whirl wind.

Children at that age are so full on from dusk till dawn.

Why is your relationship shit, is there any particular reason, our relationship has taken a battering over the last few years, sometimes it feels like a competition as to who can snip at the other the most or who's must tired. And just shit like that really

I feel like that too with 2.6 year old and a 4 week old and I have an amazing dp at that. I don't really gave an answer for you but wanted you to know your not alone and get for handholding. Could you be a bit down? Gp or hv could maybe help you out there. I have depression previously and it's a bleak place to be but can be overcome with help . Could you talk to dp let him know how you feel? Or maybe family or a close friend?

Have you got some nice pics of your son? Have a look at those for some smiles.

Give yourself one small task. Have a shower, put some make up on. Or clean the kitchen sink. Or make the bed. Something small, something achievable.

It's horrible feeling like this.
