How do you deal with the anxiety of being a stepparent?

Hello everybody!

I wrote my first post a few days ago and I want to thank all the people that answered me. 

I wanted to know if anybody has some tips regarding self-care while being a stepparent. Since SS4 came to live with us full time about 4 months ago, my mental health has been declining, as well as the relationship with my DH. Me and DH were in a bad moment when SS came here, and having him here made the situation worst. After many discussions, we agreed that we would try to make our relationship work, starting a new page. 

I don't know what to do with 4 years old SS

Hello everybody! 

This is my first post so hopefully I can get some advice.

I have a 4 years old SS, living with us full time until June. BM is far away (we don't know where) and only calls once in a while. SS is a cute and affectionate kid, but the relationship between me and him is what "bothers" me: I don't know how to deal with it.
