my son is 16 months old. i am a single mother, not by choice, but by circumstance. things did not work out between my son's father and i so we broke up and i moved out of our apt at the time. my son's father and i have gotten back together, but are still living apart, and the older my son gets, and the more he acts up, i'm starting to realize i didn't really want to have a child. not to sound awful, but i just don't think i was ready for one. i know that i put myself in this situation and that i only have myself to blame, but i feel really bad for feeling this way. maybe it's the stress of raising him alone that is making me feel the way i do. i just feel like a really bad mom for having those thoughts. Should I feel bad for having these feelings and has anyone else in a similar situation ever felt this way?
