Hi mixed up mum. I don’t have children. I am assuming that your children are teenagers. When I was a teenager all my parents did was work and sleep. They would often fall asleep in the chairs and on the sofa while watching tv. I never felt resentful for that because I knew they were just tired.

Your daughter seems more understanding and your son seems indifferent either way.

You seem to be putting a lot of unnecessary pressure on yourself. Of course if you are stressed out, not sleeping or recovering from trauma, you will end up sleeping more. I struggle myself and I don’t do half of what you do. Sort of a double espresso and two red bulls I say just go with it.

Life is hard enough without making it harder on ourselves.
