I know i hate conflict and prefer to ignore it but i am killing myself in the process, and dont say just speak to them.....that is where the problem lies!

Well, maybe take on these tasks one by one rather than all at once. I'm sure others will have addvice based on their own experiences. Plan what to say, and prepare to speak calmly, and not emotionally. Don't expect an awful response, but a helpful one. Sort out a couple of good reasons for what you;re asking or saying. And if talking about it is too difficult, why not write them a pleasant, friendly, but clear letter, saying what you want to say, and asking if you can meet with them to discuss it ?
I think I agree with Shaun, but I'm not entirely sure what he said !
