I am a SAHM to my two stepdaughters and my daughter. I am so frustrated all the time it seems. We have so many issues with his ex (abused the girls, mentall abusive) and it has caused lots of issues in the oldest daughter. My husband keeps getting laid off work. I feel like if I didn't hold everything together it would all fall apart. And I feel like any moment I'll break. Do any of you ever want to just up and leave it all?

I think everyone gets to a point in their lives that they feel overwhelmed & like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, and if they say that's not true, they are lying. As a SAHM mother of 4 kids, 1 from an ex, 1 is my step-son from my DH's 1st marriage & then we have the other 2 LO's that are added into the mix. It can get very complicated at times. Sometimes overwhelming. Everyone dreams of an "island" that they could escape too w/ out the drama of daily life. However, when it comes to drama, you can either feed into it, or you can deny it, turn it away & only allow positive thoughts to come into your head. As hard as it is, if you dwell on issues that you are unable to fix on your own, it's like beating a dead horse. KWIM? Hang in there!

Yes, every major incident, I think I've had enough. I love my dh but this isn't what I signed up for. I knew it wouldn't be easy but I didn't expect it to be this hard.

Hugs to you!
