I feel like I’m going insane!

Hi I’m new here so I’m not really sure exactly how this all works haha. All I know for sure is I need to vent and feel like I’m not alone BIG TIME. Some background — I’m 21 years old and I’ve been with my boyfriend (24) for 2.5 years. He has a son who is turning 7 in a few days. His son’s mother is not in the picture so I’m pretty much the only mother he’s known. His son has an obvious, but undiagnosed, learning and behavioral disabilities as well as obvious, but also undiagnosed, ADHD. They both live with me and my family. 


Does it ever get better?

So SS5 is visiting for 10 days while he's on Fall break. Last time he was here it was for 2 and a half months over the summer so the 10 days shouldn't seem like a big deal. But this time I have a 7 week old newborn daughter and my husband doesn't have off of work. My mother-in-law is here to take care of SS while DH is at work, but I still just want the house to myself so I can focus on my daughter. She's an absolute delight, not fussy, and is almost sleeping through the night, so it's not that I couldn't handle SS and my baby girl, but I really just want alone time with her.
