I've tried posting in the groups or whatever on here and it seems like the groups are dead or something, I just haven't found anyone whose been where I am and I really need some support/advice etc
I'm 21 single mom of twin boys who just turned one, (YESTERDAY! :) ) and I'm still living with my parents.
I really want to move out for numorous reasons, but I don't think I can do it.
My only source of income is my financial aid, which is mostly loans :/
I'm working on getting at least a parttime job so I can get daycare because right now my mom watches them while I'm in school because she isn't working. its really hard on everyone, espessially her and it's really put a strain in our relationship. we just fight so much.
idk what to do. I don't feel like I could manage if I moved out.
has anyone else out there managed with two toddlers on their own? what did you do?
what should I do????

File for child support. Apply for section 8 housing. Rent is based on income. There may be issues since you are a student. The wait for section 8 may be months to years. Some complexes are very nice. Consider counseling for you and your mother to get along. Since you are probably on Medicaid counseling would be free for you and they would probably let your mother come with you. My son has bipolar disorder and he is 22 and I always go to his appointments with him. At the mental health clinic where he goes they have many groups and other things like yoga, meditation, stress management, and similar programs and they are all free if you are a client. At the community mental health clinics they have case managers that help you find community resources.
