I love my girls so much. We worked and fought for ten years to have them, and they are so much more wonderful than we ever dreamed they could be even in our most idealizing infertility moments. But I'm so tired, and so behind on everything, and constantly trying to stay a step ahead of them, keep them interested in things, etc etc etc, you get the picture.
Anyway I know you folks have been there or are there and I want to know what you do to release stress. I feel so guilty admitting I have any, since I went through so much to have them and since we are all doing so well after many health struggles in the beginning. My DH works a hugely stressful outside job and still helps out so much. My sainted MIL comes every day to help me and she's like a second mother to the girls, we all love her so much. My parents come visit and help every couple of months (they really help too!). With so much support I don't understand why I am struggling so much all of a sudden. I'm being totally supportive and wonderful with the girls but DH caught undeserved hell from me today and I hate that. I just feel ragged after treating him so badly, and he was so gracious to accept my apology but we both feel so bad.
I don't really want to ask this question on one of my mainstream twins boards because I know the advice I'll get will be to take some time away from the girls, like a weekend or even a week, stop co-sleeping and start CIO, stop nursing, etc etc etc. I can't imagine any of those things would help. I do need to know how to regroup though. I want to find a way to release the stresses of the day without anyone else, especially longsuffering DH, to catch the brunt of it.
Any tips from fellow-travellers? Thanks!
