I write these journal to express how I feel and right now I feel like taking all three of my kids and running away.I feel like I have been a failure and a let down to my kids and it is just killing me inside.I am still residing with my children's father and it is like I'm living in hell.I am currently sleeping in the same bed with my son because I in no way want their dad to speak or touch me in anyway.I have been placed in depression medication and I'm hurting inside.I deal with my kids day in and day out,often neglecting myself and Iam getting emotionally drained.My youngest daughter has Sickle Cell Disease and has been diagnosed with ADHD,in which I feel is my fault.Me and her dad argue all the time and it has even lead to physical altercations.Right now I don't know what to do.I have family in Geaorgia(Decautur and Stonemountain and I speak to my godsister who lives there every other day,she is in her upper 30's and is encouraging me to leave and move down there.Now is the time I feel like packing me and my kids up and leaving.I feel like a single mother eventhough I live with there dad I really don't  think he will ever wisen up and do what he needs to do for us.I even told him to not think about me but just think about our kids.Im tired of fighting,crying and being lonely.I wish I could runaway.Every night I look at my 8 year old child and cry.Her behavioral issues is because of me,and I don't want her to hate me for it.I think she gives me the most problems because she is a daddy's girl and she see's that I don't speak,look or communicate with him in a loving matter.I don't want to be with him anymore because I feel that all the burden of this household is on my shoulders and he is not doing anything to lift them off.I have Sickle Cell Disease and so do my two daughters and all I want is for them to be happy.I feel like Running away to Georgia,sorry its so long.As I sit and write this,their are tears of pain running down my face.Im tired of crying and just want to be happy.

Hon, there is Nothing you did wrong to cause your child to have any of the above mentioned problems. If your godsister is encouraging you to get away, then maybe this is God's way of saying it's time to move on and get out of that abusive relationship.  Jesus does not want anyone to be hurt by another person, and certainly by a man that could do you and your children any harm.  I would go ahead and leave for awhile and see where God wants you to be. Pray about it and know that you have done nothing wrong to your children. You are a good Momma and you love your children. Jesus has entrusted you with those babies and He knows that you are going to raise them up well. :)

Know He is there for you always, and my thoughts and prayers are as well.

Jesus bless you hon and may Jesus see you through these trying and difficult times.

So girl keep your head up an don't let any man bring you down are make you feel like you are at fault.......You are what they call and " Independent Woman" you know the song... " I got my own house,own car" girl feel in the blanks...lol I hope that made you feel a little better.... Girl men only do to us what we let them...... Girl take a stand... I know you can and will...

Jun. 1, 2008 at 10:31 AM I agree with sumiyah! just never settle for a man, never! because you will regret it later down the road. just leave, not because you don't want to be with him anymore, but because of the safety of your kids. god wouldn't give you anymore than you an handle, being in the worst is one of them. i'm sorry you and your kids have to go through that. i will definitely keep you in my prayer.

Jun. 5, 2008 at 11:00 AM Its sad to hear that you are like that..I really do think that you should take your kids and go give them a better environment. Especially if you are sure that you dont want to be there anymore. Its about time that you start focusing on you and your children which is the most important thing.
