I will say this, Eric, you do not have kids, until you do, you will never understand.
The past few years have been some of the hardest my family and I have ever had to endure. Yes, I did have post partum. Yes, I was self-centered. Any one that has had post partum will know, no one else can go through it with you. So, logic tells me, "gee, you might be a little self centered". What the fuck people? I had 2 people that were very close to me die during this same time period. I guess people do not count those emotions. When I wrote about my uncle, it was heartfelt. I know he did not have the life he wanted. He wanted all the stresses and love a family can give. Also, a child with a sleep disorder and multiple illnesses. Does anyone think this may be stressful? I wrote this before, and I am writing it again, if you are with someone 24/7, be it your child or a "beloved" spouse, yes, you are going to get sick of them and need a break. Doesn't mean you love them any less or regret having them or being with them. Just means you are human.
My blog is exactly that, mine. It is mine to whine, bitch, and complain as much as I want. I have very few outlets as it is, why fuck with this one? It takes a sad, sick person to dissect my crappy little corner of the internet. Obviously they are missing something.
