Feel strained and exhausted all the time with small kids at the shelter

(by Ms. Maki Izai , Terauchi, Kashima-ku, Minami Souma-shi, Fukushima Prefecture, at gymnasium in Azuma General Athletic Park in Minami Souma City)
My Children are small, so I am very concerned not to bother other people. After lights are turned off, I go outside to lull my two-year-old son for about 30 minutes every night, while I am worried about my ten-year-old daughter who is left alone at the evacuation center. I am under the strain all the time, and am exhausted. I wish they can set up a nursery at the evacuation center so that mothers can take a break even for a short time.
