No wisdom but hugs from me. I've BTDT.
I think you're very wise to take time off from schooling for awhile. I would keep school on the back burner and tackle the behavior issues first. Is there a teenager in your homeschooling group that can come and help a couple hours a day? Whether with housework, cooking, tending the little ones while you shower, etc? That's what my teenage daughter does for another family.
AngelBee, I'd start w/mealtimes, bathtimes & bedtimes. For example, times that meals are, what kind of healthy food will be served, behavior expected during meals, what happens if meal is not eaten. For bathtime, time of day, order of baths, put PJ's on after, etc. For bedtime (could be combined w/bathtime), same time every night, baths, brush teeth, read books for a specific period of time, then into bed. That way you have the major parts of the day scheduled, and you have a few chunks of time to fit in your other needs, such as homeschooling, playtime, etc.
Good luck. Feel free to Pm me if ya wanna chat.
Good work AngelBee! I hope things are settling down for you and you are feeling better.
Mama to DS(7), DS(4), DD(1) and #4 due 8/2014!
