Need to vent :(

I hope this is where I post this....I looked st other forums so if I missed something let me know

It has been a crummy month and I just need to get some things off of my chest. Dh let a medical issue go WAY to long and spent a week in the hospital. Then we spent a week going to wound care and drs appts daily. We live 30 miles from town. I have a 10 month old that I've drug with me the entire time because she doesn't take a bottle and I don't have a babysitter if I did. And a 7 yo that I'm supposed to be homeschooling at the moment and don't have time for.

Now at least home health is coming out daily but dh has a huge open wound and mrsa. So I'm pretty much freaking out about that daily. And I'm not a germaphobe by nature. He's going to be off 4-6 months. I hope he doesn't lose enough use if his arm to not do his job. We have 14 weeks of pay then no income. So socking away our tax refund.

I've had to let my dd down several times because now I can't do the things I promised her. Like getting her ears pierced and a skating party for her bday. Nothing super expensive but I'm trying to get us through this financially.

Then I had family drama yesterday. I felt that's cousins daughter was mistreating my dd and said something to her. I should have kept my mounts shut but it slipped out. She told her mom and then her mom was mad at me. And my mom was upset as well because they were upset. I called and apologized and smoothed it over as best I could.

AND I have my first full blown pp period. I'm soaking tampons and pads both. And want to try mama cloth and car even get time to sit down and sew them . I just want to cry.

Sorry for the long post. I just feel so overwhelmed and keep trying to concentrate on the things that are good in my life. Heathy kids, food and shelter and all that. Sometimes it just gets hard and I'd like to sit in my mamas lap and cry.

I hope things get better for you quickly! This will be like a season it will pass & maybe the next one will be better. After dh is all healed up maybe you can get things to normal.

Well at least things went better today. Nobody brought it up and everyone was nice so we had a good Easter. Maybe we will get news from the surgeon about the next procedure tomorrow and I can get in all of our schoolwork. That would really help my mood

Re: Need to vent :(

Im sure its the PP af that made you go overboard. After being so blissfully 'free down there' to suddenly have to cope with that -and that it'll be back every month now- it makes us see red. See, you were quite ok, despite all the setbacks...until you saw it and then all hell breaks loose.

And you just wanna scream..NOOOO, NOT NOW!
