Buy a huge stack of paper plates, bowls and plasticwear. Bad for the environment, but short term will help you tremendously with your mental health. Throw away when done. No dishes. Less stress.
I did it for a month and it was a godsend.
If laundry can't be put off, throw one load in every morning and that's it. I don't bother separating colors/whites/towels/anything most of the time, and just use cool water. You gotta do what you gotta do.
Our ins doesn't cover psychiatric care I don't believe.
I don't wanna say "Just give me drugs and leave me alone." but at the same time I don't have time to see a dr for my physical health with the kids...ya know? I only have babysitters once in a while, my DH works till after most drs offices are closed. *sigh*
I'm just so sick of the mood swings and being so stressed and grumpy and angry. I wanna be a good mama again, I feel like I haven't been a good mama to James in a long time...: because I'm so stressed out and that makes me angry and snappy.
