I feel like I can't win

I'm newly separated.  I went from being a sahm to a working mom.  I found a nice respectable job, only they can only offer it pt for now but ft later.  I'm just so frustrated.  I can't pay my rent on my pt job along with other bills.  I've completely drained my savings.  I want to bang my head against the wall applying for fs.  I feel like I fail and I'll never be able to do it on my own and my only option is to go back to my x.

Hey, it's not going to be easy but don't give up! You can do it! There are other things to help besides food stamps.. don't feel like a failure. You can make it! If you don't mind me asking.. what state are you in?

I could do some searching for you if you don't mind and see if there's more help out there? I'm on the east coast but I'm sure I could find a few places for you

Keep your head up. You are starting over, and it's okay to get help if you need it. You won't be stuck in this position forever.

because I have zero savings, I have to get on fs, I dropped out my senior year of college to have my babies, I just all around suck.  Everything is taken care of for the time being so for that Im thankful.  I've got christmas and january covered.  I'm just overwhelmed and scared out of my mind.

yes please.  if I don't spend anything and receive fs then I can cover my rent and needs minus 300 which I hope I can get from my x until I'm able to support us.

you can do it. look for a job that will give you full time (I understand that sometimes its not THAT easy) or let them know that you need fulltime by x date or else you will be forced to find full time somewhere else (I also see how this could quickly get you out of work so hopefully you see what I'm implying :D)

You are doing your best. Don't beat yourself up just because you truly need FS.
