Guys, I just need a hug!

I am so tired!
(I do chef work at a college)
Everyone knows that trying to make a baby in itself is tiring. I also haven't saw O or any sign :[. In addition, I'm working Sun-Wed 9am-8pm-9pm (depends on clean up etc.) So on those days I have enough time to get home and give my kids some quick loving- throw a load of clothes in the washer and a set into the dryer- lay out the next days clothes...and that is it. By that point I'm ready to fall out. The pain I'm having in my abdomen and back seems to also affect energy or lack there of. I seriously need some vitamins or something!
On top of that, my sweet boy Jeremiah has been sick for almost a month. It started with strep throat. I took him to the DR for a test and antibiotic. He got better for 10 days (same amount of time as the medicine.) On the 11th day he broke out in a rash head to toe that was really bad. Back to the DR. They said it was an allergic reaction and was so bad that they did blood test. Those tests came back inconclusive. He got better and a week later he got a stomach bug. That was short lived at 2 days. And then yesterday he got a high fever and just felt horrible. Today he has the fever and threw up this morning and one of his eyes is red. This kid is usually healthy. I don't know WHAT is going on! If he doesn't feel better tonight then I will take part of tomorrow off to take him back to the DR. At times like these I wonder if I could handle 3 kids...I just need a hug, a friend, a maid-- :'[

Thanks for listening to my vent.

Hey Ruthie,

We all have really down days (weeks.. and I'm sorry to hear this is yours. :(

I think, from what I've read in your post, that you will make an excellent mother of 3. You work hard to give your kids a great life, put them first and you are so concerned about the little one being ill....I've had friends not even really notice when their kid has been sick for a long time....that shows how well connected to them you are.

You should make time for a nice long bubbly bath and some chocolate, and remind yourself of what a totally fantastic mother you already are. GO YOU!
