feeling overwhelmed

I've been a single mom before. but it was years ago, and it was just me and my 2 kids. Now its me and 4 kids. I'm stressing out about how I'm going to make ends meet. I hate having to admit it, but i'm going to need state assistance temporarily. I have to go back to work, and I haven't had a job in my field in 7 years. I'm almost 30, and the kids and I will have to stay with my parents for a little bit until I get on my feet. I hate being a grown adult, and having to ask my parents for help. End rant

 You can do this. It will take some help from others and some time to get to where you want to be, but trust in yourself that it will happen.hugs

BTDT, but it's ok and your parents will understand.  

Don't be ashamed to ask for help (either from the government or your parents).  It's there for a reason.

You can do it. Apply for jobs where you can and take advantage of the state help you can get. Use their resources to help find a job.

I agree with this.
