I'm so tired of being alone. I'm tired of needing a friend and none being there. I'm just tired. I need help and no one is around and i don't know how many more times I can pick myself up. I desperately need someone to show that they care and that i matter. I've gone to friends houses and cleaned on days I don't work and dont have my kids, because they need help. But no one has ever done it for me. They act amused and always respond, I wish I could but ive got something stupid to do and don't want to :). I get the amused apology as a response to me calling to finally vent, even though I'm crying and saying i wish i could just take off and not deal with this anymore. How is that funny? What about me reaching my limit is funny? I'm venting on a website full of people I dont know in desperation for sympathy instead of getting some real help from my family and so called friends. It's pathetic. I can't keep doing this.

How do you tell your friends and family they suck? Since i can't call any one pwrson and ask to talk, vie I apparently know the busiest people on earth. I've resorted to putting it on facebook, (seriously I don't have a bunch of random people on there, its friends qnd family to share the kids growing up with) and I never recieve a phone call or text or anyone asking whats wrong and offering to just be there. I've also resorted to calling a single parent hotline, which is stupid because all they do is try to get you off the phone qnd give numbers to call for resources. Don't say anything about that, its stupid and useless even though it sounds the opposite. I just need to talk to someone.

Being a single parent is rough but you've got to stop relying on other people to make you feel better about yourself and your situation. Nothing wrong with looking for support but wanting others to feel sorry for you is ridiculous. You owe it to yourself and your kids to rise to the occasion and stop waiting for someone to come and save you. Its time you say to yourself that you cant count on anyone and figure out a way to be happy anyway.

What are do you live?  There may be some support groups out there for mom's that you could join or playgroups.  Another option may be to go to counseling for yourself.  Hugs to you.

 So you come right out and ask your friends & family for help & they refuse?  That's awful!  I go through spurts of feeling alone and wish I could call friends and vent sometimes but then I feel like we all have our problems so I keep to myself.  But I don't doubt for a second that if I did call them, they would be there for me.  I'm sorry you are going through that.  Have you considered counseling?  Also, do you attend church?  Maybe it's time you branch out to find different friends.  ((HUGS))
