Some of u know, that my husband and i were having alot of issues. Well, we seperated last year even though we still lived together. i slept in another room and he slept in our room. anyways, one day in january i got so fed up with him so i took my daughter, loaded up my truck and i left!! he didnt know what to do.. anyways, i ended up moving back home with my parents (ugh)-that is the most hardest thing i ever did. so, after i left my ex kept asking me to come back & that he will change. u cant change someone, they have to change on their own. when we were still married, i asked several times, if he could change for our daughter, and he said ok and never did. well, mid january, i filed for dissolution. we had to go to a child class which we had to pay for and in march it was final. i would have to say the dissolution was ok, and going to court was ok. the hardest part is the financial part!! when u r used to 2 incomes, and now only 1, that makes it very hard!! needless to say, u cant depend on a man for ANYTHING! i learn to depend on myself and that is it!! its very hard, so i figured since im living at home, im gonna take advantage of it and go to school. now, i never went to college, after high school went straight to work. so, i have to do soemthing for my daughter and that is the best way. i hope to start nursing school in the fall. its gonna take me 20 months, but at the end, it will all be worth it.  there is such a high demand for nurses so why not? a friend of mine is trying to get into the same program, so we can study together. i know its gonna be very hard, but all worth it in the end. i cant wait to be a pediatric nurse :)

Been there and still doing it.  I've been a single mom for 17 years.  Even though I was married for 5 (legally still am) of those years, he spent his income faster than it came in so we always depended on my income for bills.

You are doing what's best for you and your child.  Thats what you have to keep telling yourself.  I've been at the point so many times that moving back to the parents house has been an option.  I know my parents would welcome us back with open arms, it's just swallowing the pride =)  Thankfully right now I don't have to but if I did, a big gulp would be needed.

Good luck wih'll do fine.
