How can one heal adrenal fatigue with young, busy kids at home? It seems impossible. The number one thing for adrenal fatigue is more sleep: go to bed early, sleep in late, and take naps. Okay, who's going to watch my kids? Who's going to pick my eldest up from school? Who's going to get him to school in the first place? It's just not feasible.
The next thing is to de-stress life. Right, I'm going to be able to lessen the stress in my life when the youngest has hit her Terrible Threes and everything is a power struggle of epic proportions. Or when my kids fight almost non-stop. Or when they bug me over and over again because they're bored. Or I do let them do some fun activity and then I have to clean up after it.
My husband works nights an can't help during the days he sleeping. On his days off he's fixing stuff around the house, which is great. In order for our household to work, though, I need to pull my weight, and I just can't. I'm exhausted. I feel like a Victorian age woman that has hysteria or nerves or whatever. I can't handle loud noises, I can't handle the kids exploring life in a normal way, and I can't handle homemaking duties. I can't handle my life and I just don't know what to do about it.
Does anyone have any tips? I'm feeling at a loss and my kids are getting the brunt of it.
