Anyone else feel like they're dying?

I only have one baby. She's a year old. I simply don't feel that I have enough time during the day to get everything done and take care of myself. I'm not here to complain but I literally feel like nobody understands, even as much as I try to explain. I do breathing exercises, but I still feel like I'm dying on the inside. I hate feeling misunderstood and guilty for feeling the way I do. Does anybody else feel like this? What did you do?

Mom of 9... completely understand 💯%

I felt like this with my first.. A lot. For me, mindfulness and breathing did not help. I had ppd/rage that had to be medicated. It didn't help that my first is a..spirited child. He was a velcro baby and still is now as a 4 year old.

I feel like this needs to be talked about more but it doesn’t. First time mom here and when my daughter was between 6months to about 1 1/2 I felt like I was in the trenches. She only wanted me and if I went out of her eyesight she would completely freak out. I felt like I never had a second truly to myself since all day I was tending to her then at night I was cleaning and getting the house in order. I ended up having my daughter involved with anything I needed to do, like helping putting clothes in the laundry, helping pick up certain things just trying to make a “game” out of it. Now she’s 3 and is still very clingy lol but is starting to get a little independent. When she’s eating/snacking I’ll try to get as much done in that time frame as I can since she’s distracted lol. It’s definitely hard, but as time passes it does get better ❤️
