I became a single parent 2.5 months ago. I have a baby that will be 2 in February. I moved into my parents house, where i have no privacy. My parents don't want to " deal with the hassle of my kid" so i get like zero support from them. I am talking to a new guy who i also work with in the evenings. This month i will start my second job. I have been doingnonstop paperwork since i moved out trying to establish help and court ordered child support. My ex wants to be with me still and be a family so he tries to be helpful, but gets upset constantly because he wants me back so badly. He keeps the baby every Saturday night, but I am tired!!! I need a break!!! I don't get to do anything fun, or have spare time or money right now, cannot try to enjoy my relationships. I am trying to be a good mom, and I have pretty much no support system. It would be easier to just go back to my ex, but I left for religious purposes and now the other guy is involved also. I am just overwhelmed and so tired sitting up falling asleep, and all that happens is people telling me "i put myself in this situation"

I hear ya -it's super hard & tiring - esp. with no support.  If your ex trreated you good, do you think there's a chance to work things out?  counseling maybe?  Just a thought.  Remember, the grass is always greener - like with this other new guy.  Take some time and really think, KWIM.  Hugs.

I laughed when i saw this. Because I am! I have depression which makes things so much more difficult. I have a 2 yr old that gets into EVERYTHING and a 4 yr old with special needs. By the end of the day I'm just exhausted. Oh and I do work.

I think I'm right there with you lol my son is at that very hyper curious age. And since i have moved his sleep scheduleis completely off. The person that is watching him while i work at night has been letting him take long naps at like 5-6 in the evening so he has been staying up until 1-2 am. I will be glad when i start my second job because he will be in daycare and have other babies to play with.

I have been a single mother almost a year now, my sons father has totally checked out and is avoiding getting served for child support.  I have family here but I don't feel right asking them to keep my son so that I can go and do something.  I will every now and then but not often!  My little man is 3 and full of energy and is non stop from the word go in the morning.  Hang in there life will eventually settle down again one way or another.
