My baby Joey is 6mo old and teething like crazy lately and it’s throwing off our semi-routine. He’s been extra needy and clingy and I can’t seem to get things done around the house. It’s driving me nuts!!! It’s been stressful 😓 It’s been testing my patience (I have very little of it.. I know I’m working on it😞) and I catch myself yelling at my baby. I feel guilty and so bad right after and I just cry in the other room. I had a melt down yesterday and had to call my sister for help. I feel so bad and guilty, I don’t want to inconvenience anyone or be judged when I ask for help like they think I can’t take care of my baby. I definitely have some insecurities with being a FTM I’m just trying to do it all and when I get frustrated or fall short I also forget to self-care (like really bad). It’s hard to balance it all. And on top of that I have a husband that’s amazing but I have no sex drive at the end of a long day. I’m not fulfilling his needs and I feel so bad! I really just can’t get it together😣 I just feel like I’m a SAHM and I should be able to manage it all. And I feel defeated and depleted when I fall short.
My son is going through the same thing. Don’t feel bad about asking for help, you have a support system so use it so you can have some self-care and peace yourself back together. That way you can work on being intimate with your husband in other ways and the physical. Just remember that he is your partner and he’s there to communicate and help you out in anyway he can.￼￼￼￼
