The wind out my sails

My youngest is two, in every sense of the idea. The littlest thing will set him off, tantrum wise, and they are intense. (They're within "normal" parameters, but more intense than my other kids who sailed brought this age."

I know the routine is to let the tantrum run its course and go about your business. The problem is that after a tantrum, all of my energy is just drained. I'm physically and emotionally exhausted from listening to the screaming. Today, after dragging him from the grocery store and sitting in the car waiting for it to die down then trying to finish my shopping... When the cashier asked "how are you?" I nearly started crying.

If one more person tells me to "enjoy them while they are little" I'm going follow them home and scream at them until I pass out.

Any tips for surviving this phase?
