i know i should be happy with my life. i have 3 happy healthy kids and im only 27. i just cant stop finding the negatives in my life. i feel like i missed a huge chunk of my life because i had my first when i was 20. i see there girls who dont have kids in tow, they can do anything and go anywhere, and i just get so jealous. i cant work because i cant afford daycare. i just feel so down.

 Stop awfulizing everything. Your kids are healthy,they love you,and they are blessings. As my Dad used to say "can't never could". Where there is a will you will find a way. Is your baby's daddy in the picture? If so could he help with babysitting.

wow i came here seeking support and understanding and that sounds harsh. its not something i choose to feel or can just get over.

 can you get assistance with daycare through the social services? thats what my daughter does. they provide daycare for all three of her kids. if not can you get someone to watch them sometime when you go out and have some free time?

because my so makes around 2000 a month gross and i get 506 in child support for my oldest the state wont help. so only brings home cant 12 of that every month. we have been struggling with just paying the bills so i cant imagine paying a sitter or going out. we only drive when we have to so we can save on gas and the adults only ebt like one MAYBE two meals a day so we have enough food for the kids. i dont have health insurance because adding me was too much. i just cant stretch our money any more than i already do. but because i have no education the only job i would get pays no more than 10 an hour and daycare costs around 300 per kid.

thank you. that means a lot to me. i have no support because i moved away from my family. they are as supportive as they can be, but i just want some grown up time.
