Ok so I'm having a bad day today. For those that are parents and in relationships, how do you cope when everything bothers you? My fiancé is sick so I'm taking care of him. However, prior to him being sick the clothes were piling up again and he was leaving shit everywhere. At first, I was ok but today just seemed to be hard to shake. My kids for the most part do their chores but I usually have to remind them of little things they forgot to do that I think they are too old for me to be telling them more than once. I feel myself getting irritated and yelling more. Even my dogs are getting on my nerves and they just look at me with confused looks. I know they can sense something is off. I can't stop crying and I feel like I'm 6 feet from the edge. Right now I don't have interest in anything except watching TV and that isn't helping. I'm trying to slowly exercise and trying to dig up the energy and motivation to do that. It's not their fault but I feel like a terrible parent every time I yell for small things. I feel like having depression has cheated my kids out of a mom they can be proud of.
I have many days like these and I don't know what to do so I'm asking what do others do to keep from jumping off the ledge and having a breakdown.
