Get a baby sitter and pamper yourself a little bit. Getting away for a couple of hours can make such a big difference.
Raising children can be overwhelming and you need some help. Is the father in your child's life? Perhaps, he can lend a hand and give you some free time.
The fact that you consider your child an appendage is a cry for help. Some children need our attention more than others. Please talk to someone. You're not alone. My first child was extremely hyper-active and never slept. I swore I'd never have anymore children. Well, I now have 3 wonderful kids. You will get past this, if you get the help you need.
