I'm exhausted, and I'm just incapable of meeting the wants and needs of my children. I cry from tiredness, I'm just worn out, worn out... Also, I get up with zero energy, and the smallest daily task is so difficult. Often, thinking of what we're going to eat for dinner, it's a mountain... Honestly, the slighest thing uses up all my energy, and I have nothing left. Nothing. I'm just in survival mode..."
