well I'm 33+3 with my forth and just about ready to give up. The last 5 weeks have been horrendous, just seems like everything is being thrown at me all at once. My grandad had a stroke in Feb and passed away 2 weeks later, I had to cancel all my DDs just so I had enough money to travel from South Wales to Cheshire to spend time with him then again for the funeral. On top of this tax credits messed up and didn't pay us a week so we where a week without money, gas, electric and food. They've since recalculated and as a temporary measure to make up for the missed payment we get more a week which has caused our housing benefit to be reduced by half. Wish I could say it ends there but it really doesn't, I'm a second year law student and I'm now facing disciplinary action for my absence despite keeping my personal tutor informed and this is before the physical symptoms of pregnancy.
Everyday is a struggle, I've developed gestational diabetes and I cannot get on top of my sugars. I'm experiencing severe pain in my lower back and hips to the point where I can barley walk. It's more of a shuffle and I'm in constant agony. I have a 15 month old and I'm struggling to look after him properly cos I'm in so much pain. I can't lift him any longer and when he's being mischievous I just can't get to him quick enough to make sure he's safe. He's been very poorly too, he's had ear & chest infection after another since November. And my 10 year olds behaviour really isn't helping, he has adhd but this doesn't excuse his attitude of late. if I ask him for help he either point blank refuses and completely ignores me which causes arguments. Yesterday he decided to lay on the floor and laugh in my face. Even asking him to brush his teeth result in an argument.
I just can't cope anymore, I'm beyond breaking point
