    Default i miss being nice - help!!!!

    my dh and i recently seperated. :smt022 we are trying to reconcile still hope!.
    im 29 weeks preg with babe 4. very hormonal. and my 18month old has decided not to sleep anymore and my two boys have decided that telling me where to go is the norm.!!!!!!! :argue:
    im finding that i am constantly yelling and screaming at them esp the boys - which i totally detest doing but cant seem to stop myself. i have tried time out (for me) but thats not working .....i am willing to try anything!!!!! please does anyone have any ideas.

    wens, what an incredibly difficult time this must be for you, I really feel for you hon. Do you have much support close by, like family or good friends who can help out? Can you get the kids involved in some school holiday programs so you can have a rest?

    Your situation sounds really tough. Sorry I don't have any helpful suggestions, other than make sure you get the support you need - if your don't have family or friends close by and available get in touch with one of the many organisations or phone helplines, as you need to have someone available at any time you might need to talk. (((Hugs))) and sympathy coming your way.

    Hi Wendy

    I only live just down the road so if you need to pop down for a cup of tea and a vent please feel free. Sometimes talking about the situation will make it seem more possible to cope
