I'm so sorry to hear about your situation.
If she's leaving her children in your care and just expects you to take care of them, yes, that is wrong, and if you are having troubles taking care of them do your health, it's also potentially neglect of her children and abuse of your situation.
As far as your options, you can call Social Services or CPS and they can place the children in care. You can also call the police and report her abandonment of them. Something needs to be done to get her attention and know that it is not appropriate for her to keep doing this.
You could also evict her from the house or tell her she's not allowed to live there anymore. You could also have the locks changed, etc.
