I'm tired of being a single mom. I can't do it anymore. :( I can't keep the house clean, I can't finish school, I can't avoid getting shit on at work because the kids get sick. I just can't do it anymore.

Do you have any single mamma friends who you could rent a house with? I always thought about how cool it would be to live with a good friend and help each other out.



Im sorry your having such a smurfy time :(

Nope, plus I'm not gonna trust anybody anymore with that shit. BD fucked me over with that and I'm not going through it again. If I even got cs it would help, but since he feels like he doesn't have to pay then yea. I'm just sooooo fed up. I just want to curl up in a ball and freaking cry.

Aww I'm sorry ur going thru all that! I know exactly how u feel! I have felt like that on many occations. Take a deep breath, go look at some pics of ur kids & when ur thinking how much u love them..remember they depend so much on u! Go put on some music u like, grab a soda & start cleaning up with a good mood! It will help u but also ur kids cuz idk about urs but my kids pick up on my moods & if I was crying or sad, my 7 year old will cry too. This is how I make it thru when I'm in my feelings..hope it helps u some. Good luck & keep ur head up! Ur a strong woman u can do it! :)

It must be very hard to be in your situation and I am sure that you are not the only person who struggles with being a single mom. You have every right to feel overwhelmed. You sound like you may be suffering from burn out.



For the time being you may want to minimize the responsibilities that you currently have. You may want to postpone school for awhile, just until you can catch up with life. You don't have to keep your house immaculate. As long as you have safe space for your kids that isn't unsanitary, you can give yourself a break. Clutter isn't the end of the world, right? At least it isn't in my world lol. I'm not a good housekeeper. You may also need to find ways that you can spend a little more time doing the things that you enjoy, perhaps including your children since you have little in the way of a support system.

Cleaning would be easier if I was allowed to lift more than 10 lbs

Sounds like you need a little spice in your life. Can you think of some things that you can do to add some variety in your life?
