I'm afraid I'm losing my mind.. Feeling really frustrated.. funnily things are okay - compared to earlier times, DH is more calm and our fights are resolving easier touch wood.. But I'm losing my temper in seconds.. I'm getting easily irritated - esp. minor irritants.. and allow them to cascade my mood into a storm of negativity and finally tears of anger and frustration. How do I turn things around? I am getting irked by how messy the house is, how I'm unable to do even the basic cooking and home care or self care with my baby who is actually now nearly a year old (shouldn't I be more capable now?)... So if DH keeps things around without putting them in the trash or leaves baby's eaten bowls and bottles on the table or counter without rinsing them..I get irked by the small additions to the pre-existing mess..and hate having to clean, cook and 'live like a maid' (yeah thats how biased I get) If I am unable to take baby out in the stroller, I go into What-kind-of-life-am-I-living mode. Couldn't cook while baby's sleeping, and now hungry? "What miserable life that I can't even order out!" (the reality is that I cant do it too often, and the place I live is more take-away friendly than delivery-friendly..but I get more bugged about the fact that I have to ask my DH to order for me and can't just do it myself) The Basic problem, however, is not being able to get things done in a way I want in multiple spheres, and now, when one card falls my house literally comes tumbling down.. I dont like being like this.. I am not this kind of person, and have actually been quite tolerant and understanding and patient.. but I suspect my 'adjustments' are catching up, and reaching meltdown point?? Poor DH has been trying to be very mature, and handle it on the go- quite unlike what he was say 6 months back.. but I keep getting irritated over and over again.. How to get out of feeling so negative and emotional, and work on what I need to get done?
