The honest answer you don't want to hear is that drinking to take the edge off is not good modeling for your children. It might not be harmful to them now, but think about when they are 12 or 15 -- do you want them reaching for alcohol to reduce their anxiety?

Being a mom of young kids is super hard. I have three (almost grown now) and I work with children with special needs. I see everyday the stress on families. What I know is that you need support - mother's clubs, neighbors, grandparents, friends...you have to cultivate it and you have to ask. If everyone thinks you are a supermom, they won't think to offer some help to you.

I'm glad you are working on getting your meds adjusted. And I can tell by your post you really care about your kids and want to be the best mom you can be. I hope you find the support you need.
