Stay strong girl!! You will make it through this & be better off in the long run. I know that it seems really hard right now but you can do it!!
It is so much better to be doing things on your own than to be treated like shit & doing everything pretty much by yourself anyway...

Chin up!

Just take this thing one day at a time and if that's too much one moment at a time.  What you need to do is DECIDE to be a single mom when you make that decision it makes it easier.  I know it's hard right now but you've already taken the first step by talking about it...we all need to vent sometimes...But we always have to turn around and be strong for our kids because they have weak a** men for fathers we are all they really have and know that when they grow up and become something special you will be the one that they remembered held their hands during the rough times and kissed their bruised knees and very seldom will they remember the breakdowns...Sometimes we just need to cry...I go into the bathroom and make myself cry for a few minutes during truly does cleanse the soul.  Just keep your head up and be strong.  Be Well.

I agree with the previous post.  You need to decide to be single and focus your energy on being the best mom you can be.  I don't know if you work or not, but finding something to do and being productive in the world will give you something else to focus on.  You can't do anything about him not calling or the way that he treats you, but you can do something about the way that you are reacting to the situation.  As my mom always says "One monkey does not stop a show" so don't let him stop yours.

I completely understand where you are coming from. Right now, I am in the same situation. I am not with my baby's father, nor will I be. Atleast for a long time. I am scared and upset. I just want to let you know you are not the only one out there. If you need to talk, I'd love to. We can encourage one another to take each step at a time! 
In the meantime take one day at  a time. Write me back, i'd love to talk.
