I am an single mother of 2 kids ages 3 1/2 and 5. I am new to the group. Hope I can find some common friends in this group. I have no single mom friends irl as all my friends either have no kids or are married and don't really understand how hard it is for me. I have been married twice. My first husband was neglectful to the point of abuse. And my 2nd husband almost killed me many times due to being an abusive drunk. I am not looking for anymore relationships Bc my trust is gone. Bc men I have married and dated have always put up an nice front for the first year or two and then gone jekll and hyde on me. The abuse I sustained from my 2nd marriage and some of my previous bfs has left me liking being single. But the aspect of raising kids by myself has been an challenge. I felt like an single mom when I was married Bc my ex h did not help with the kids at all. So now I have been doing it on my own for 2 years before 2nd husband and now for over an year since my divorce. It has been quite an road. I am unemployed due to how bad my lupus has gotten. And fighting for disability. That's about all I can write at the moment as my hands hurt. But I cant wait to get to know you all.
