To ask how to chill out :(

I am so stressed out. I feel so tightly wound up like I can't cope at all.

I have PTSD - work related. The work stuff is sorted now, but I'm still not who I used to be. I came off my meds about 6 weeks ago after 2 years.

I'm feeling so stressed right now. I don't know if it's work/life balance or what. How do others cope?

I only work whilst the children are at school, but still feel run ragged. I wake up tired from sleeping badly. Feel ratty and my heads a mess I have no friends only my husband, so I don't do anything away from the family.

I feel like there's so much to do and so little time. I'm worried my depression is returning and I don't know what to do. It's like I'm no good at being a wife or mum.

I work PT and juggle 6dc. Bath time is my saver.
Book, bar of choc, bubbles + dh lights me lots of candles.
Recharges me!

I second the bath. If you are on the sofa, trying to read a book, you run the risk of being ask to do something by any or all of the household who are awake.

If you're in the bath, most people will leave you to it and somehow get by without your input. Those who don't, should be given short shrift until they learn.

I also recommend a mini bottle of Prosecco in the bath, no glass needed, be classy and drink from the bottle. And a microwave soup mug is the perfect size to use as an ice bucket. Wink
