I just joined the Sparkteam Stress Busting Challenge, in an effort to learn how to manage the stressors in my life and eliminate the overwhelming nature of it all. I am the stay-at-home mother of 3 young children, a 6-year old daughter and 4-year old twin sons. I'm home with the boys every day and they're incredibly draining on me. I handle school drop-offs and pickups, making meals, packing lunch, cleaning and managing the house and the bills, then in my free time I work at the family business.
Really, it's just all too much. I desperately need to get out with my friends and have fun but when the time comes, I'm too anxious and exhausted to leave the house. I cry almost every single day, I'm in therapy and on medication and things just need to change. I need a break, I need to talk to other adults and I need 5 seconds alone.
