Okay I just need someone to vent to. I'm 21 with 2 small children ages 1 and 3. I have been very irresponsible i know but I'm trying to get my life back on track. i'm living with my mother. Thank God! she is letting me live here, I am thankful for that. but the thing is I'm struggling here. Iam trying to work, i'm in the TANF work Program an they will be helping me get a job soon. I'm also in a nursing aid class, I'm praying i graduate when the time comes. I'm not receiving any food stamps because i'm living in the house with my mother an in the state of Mississippi you have to be 22 years or older to apply for food stamps and my mom doesn't get any because her income is supposedly above the average to get any because she works. I just don't know what to do. i'm miserable and i feel like my life is going down hill. my kids dads are not in their lives by their own choice. i am cooperating with child support even though i haven't received anything. I don't even think my kids will have a thanksgiving dinner this year because of my situation. I hate this for my kids an I really feel terrible about myself that i'm putiing them threw these struggles. I wish i was a better mom, does anybody else feel like this?
