I posted in Parenting about my struggles with my 3 and 1 year old. My son cries a lot and it's very difficult for me to get anything done. I hear many people say you just have to plus through...and I was able to do this with my DD when she was a babe. Sometimes I udnerstand that they have to just stand at your legs and cry if you need to do something like make dinner. The problem is that I am not in the mental place to handle it. I struggle with depression and anger and the crying just really really wears on me...i end up yelling at my DD for no good reason, just because I can't hear myself think. I can't think clearly to make dinner or strategize anything about our life.
Today is a bad day. I just need some peace, but in order to have quiet it means that i have to just stay outside all day or be inside getting NOTHING done. I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to eat because the soup that i had planned is not going to be ready before we are hungry.
I just don't know what to do for myself in these moments...the truth is that I'm Catholic and previously I would pray. But, that doesn't work anymore...trying to pray just frustrates me and makes me more angry.
