I'm terribly sorry you feel so out-of-control but you have every right to. Small children, cancer, fatigue etc. While it's easy for me to understand what you're going through, it's difficult for me to find a solution. Do you have a group of friends, neighbors, church, family who would be willing to help sort out everyday chores like light housework, shopping, overseeing the kids for a couple hours each week so you have a chance to nap?
I have researched nation-wide cleaning services who will donate services to families in your situation. They truly are angels and if there's an organization nearby, I am sure you will feel less out-of-control. I know a clean house isn't everything, however, clutter weighs on me and even if my bed isn't made in the morning, it feels like I've failed at my day.
How old are your children? Can you get them on a schedule of picking up their things, making their bed etc.
I hope you research and get the help you need. Emotionally and mentally your outlook will improve greatly. I do hope you can get help. Good luck to you.
PS - get outside and soak up some Vitamin D with your children, that helps too. Leave the messes behind closed doors.
