What I need to heal

I need help! :) I am a stay at home mom for the most part. I work a few days each month as a massage therapist, but mostly spend my time taking care of my preschool age child. I constantly find myself overwhelmed. But then I feel guilty for not being able to handle things and take care of the house, my daughter, etc. I can never seem to get anything accomplished. I have Fibromyalgia, and push through pain on a daily basis. I just feel like I need help! My husband is great, but he works full time. So when he does take care of certain things at home, I again feel guilty about it! The post on romanticizing Motherhood really struck a chord with me. I see myself in that situation. Specifically getting frustrated, yelling at my child, then feeling guilty for taking my frustration out on her, and everyone else around me, honestly. I just feel like I need help.I could get myself into a more relaxed state if I had help and didn't feel guilty about it. I would love to get my hands on a copy of your book! I am so intrigued. From my experience as a massage therapist, I have seen cases of the body healing itself if given the means. I'm a believer and frequent user of essential oils. I'd love to couple the use of the oils with the information in your book to get myself to a better state of health! :)
