She says she is constantly on the run and is so busy, sometimes she exercises in her power suit! “I am so stressed out that when I can’t sleep, I wash my car at 2:00 a.m.,” she says. Karen says her top priority is her children, and she doesn’t want them to feel like they’re missing out on anything. She knows she needs to slow down, but doesn’t know how. She wants to know if she should quit her job and find something that pays less so she can have more time with her girls.
Kara has seven kids and says that she and her husband are so stressed their house is filled with yelling. “By 5:00 p.m., I’m losing my mind and take Advil like there’s no tomorrow,” she says. “From when I wake up until I go to bed, I feel like I am failing at my job, which is simply being a mom.” She says she is overwhelmed with keeping the house in order and wishes her children, ages 4 to 21, and husband, would give her a hand. She wants to know how to stop the screaming and is asking her husband and kids to pitch in, is it too much?
