Co-parenting isn’t always easy.
Things haven’t been easy over the past few months. Going from having the kids four days a week to essentially six with little help has been rough.
And I mean rough.
I know, I know there are others that have it WORSE then I do.
I’m beyond grateful to have them more.
But it doesn’t change the fact that between having them more and my osteoarthritis getting worse mixed with co-parenting struggles…
I’m mentally drained.
I’m thankful I decided to get help and was diagnosed with ADHD.
Between learning how to better help my brain and a new medication, my anxiety would probably be 10x’s worse by now.
Especially since it was pretty high pre-diagnosis.
I also haven’t worked out much.
I’ve been trying to move in any way I can to stay “active.”
I started watching one of the twin’s friends and that has been great to stay busy with. The twins love having someone else to do activities [and play] with. I’m just the type that needs to stay busy to not think about “anything.”
Pros and cons.
At the end of the night when the kids go to bed, I am there on the couch left to think of everything that is going on.
And let me tell you; it’s ROUGH up there [in my head].
When I started this post, I wasn’t sure what to say or where to start. I just wanted to share that I’m a bit stressed and that’s OKAY.
it’s okay to NOT be okay. Remember, one day at a time.
