Feeling really down lately. So stressed. Life is endless work. Work work, house work, family work, relationship work. I want to just sleep all the time and have the world leave me alone. Have no time, ever.

My kid's been a real pill lately, which doesn't help. He argues over every god damn thing, whines constantly, and has little fits when he's expected to do anything outside his usual routine. It's exhausting.

@smeg Kids are pills. It's amazing birth control hasn't ended the human race. My son went through a real bad patch in his late teens - drinking, not working, etc. I thought we'd be visiting him jail as an adult. But he turned out well. He's married, has a job, .. all the good stuff. I can't promise anything but I can say two things about hard times 1) They're normal and 2) Good times often follow
