Honestly, 2022 is treating me and it’s not treating me well. I am as fragile as a piece of crockery. I’m cracked, broken and tired. I have a terrible feeling that there is no immediate help. I am a teacher, a mother of two children (6 and 3 years old), a wife, and a daughter of aging and heavily indebted parents. I have always been the head of the family. I run the program. All: chores, finances, appointments, activities, shopping – everything.
My spouse works and comes home and “fixes things” and does whatever he wants. He grew up with traditional gender roles and it’s hard to break these learned views of women. This year, he’s trying to understand that I can’t do it all, but I feel men don’t know how to recognize that the burden is uneven. I feel like I’m doing my best and it’s invisible.
At school, we not enough people and children are completely out of control. When I got home, I tried to keep the chaos organized. I go to bed tired every night. I feel like my life is like a tornado and I’m glad I can hit the ground every now and then.
I’m more forgetful these days, which I don’t normally do. working mother there are 15,000 tabs open. Your computer sometimes starts to slow down. I have too many tabs open for too long so processing speed is slowing down.
Ten years ago, I worked three jobs and we bought an apartment. I have paved the way for us financially and socially ever since. In 2014 we needed IVF to have a baby and even though I knew I wasn’t the problem, I endured a horrible year of testing. But I wouldn’t have had beautiful children without it. Is one IVF mother, I’m heartbroken about Roe being overturned. When do men have to worry about their love? reproductive rights? Men must have vasectomy if a woman cannot have an abortion. The United States is collapsing.
