Can't the 9 year-old bath himself ( with just a glance from you two to check he's actually washing ) ? Does homework need close supervision ? ( Maybe I was a freaky kid --- come to think of it, I probably was --- but I always did it without supervision, as that was expected of me ) ; you can work out a plan to share cooking and washing up ( and again, the 9 year old could help a bit ) ; laundry could be done once a week rather than daily ; and so on. Don't set yourself a schedule Superwoman couldn't cope with, and then blame youtself for, inevitably, failing. I wonder whether there may be a degree of obsessive-Compulsiveness, driving you to try too much, too hard, and then blame yourself for failing to achieve the impossible goals you set yourself.
As for ADs, there are others like Wellbutrin which don't have the side-effect of loss of libido ( and o the opthers, none of them do that in EVERYONE who takes them ). I am deeply sceptical about people who run "anger management seminars" as there are different problems leading to anger probhlems, and different solutions needed, none of them including sitting in an audience listening to a lecture, however lively.
A different antidepressant and some CBT might make a useful difference.
