I am so tired of my life right now and just feel like crying. I have no friends to hang out with anymore. I am by myself with my kids 24/7. i barely get out anymore at all. I love my kids to death dont get me wrong but it would be nice to have someone to hang out with or to be able to get out of the house more. All i do all day is take care of 2 kids that cant even talk. I have barely any help at all. im just so tired of my life and just wish i had someone to talk to about all of this

Join a Mommy-and-me group
Take a class
Go to the library for story time



There are lots of options to meet people.

This may or may not be an option for you but get a job, or take some classes, or volunteer somewhere. I could not stand being a stay at home mom. I love my children but I needed human interaction. I worked and took as many classes as I could, got a couple of degrees and now own my own business where I work from home (ironically enough).



If not having daycare is an issue, perhaps you could find employment at a daycare or preschool that you can take your kids to while you work. I did that for 3 years until I finished my bachelors.

Does FL have a daycare assistance program? We have one in MO to pay for daycare while moms find work, work or go to school. I wish they had it when I had my first one. You can apply for Federal grants to pay for online courses as well. It's not as hard as you may think. A lot of my daughters friends are receiving free educations because they have a child.

im not sure if fl has a daycare program ill have to look into it. I was looking into online classes but im gonna wait a little longer cause it would be hell right now cause my 5 month old barely sleeps and he is a very fussy baby and never content so i wanna wait until he gets a little older or if i can get that daycare program than ill definitly go back to school

Get all of the help while you can and make the most of it. I have managed to provide a good life for my children on my own. I had too much pride to take assistance and did it without any help. I can't imagine how much farther I could have gone if I had accepted help. Good luck to you! It will get better. It just takes a lot of work. As far as friends go? Small sacrifice right now. Love your babies, love yourself, and the rest will fall into place.
