What i hate about my situation is I don't have enough support. I mean really most people have their mother, close friend(s), spouse or s/o, extended family/in-laws. I have NONE of that. It is literally me. If I don't have it it ain't happening. My step father was helping financially and hewas like it just got to much and I am like lol how do you think I feel when I have to ask??? I know it is a lot but I jsut don't have it. I can't work cause I don't have a sitter and DHS childcare (government help) is a freaking joke.

Today I went to a place and just asked and they totally knew what I was talking about with DHS..I will write a journal about it. But yeah...I'm about to start my next semester of college and got approved for my loan (ya) but it wont come until a month after. That means I have to find a center that will approve him being there for a month before I can pay and by then the bill will be all of the loan and the semester will be half way through.

Not like I can ask my mom can a sibiling come out to help me for a bit I don;t think my dad fully gets how stressed financially I am. I want to ask hiom for money but I be hating that shit now. I try not to think about what I don't have but when I am required to be here and there it's hard not to think about that. I had to turn down a job program because I had no childcare and I couldn't bring him. So I am hindered by lack of support. :(

I've tried joing different groups and stuff ... so far nothing....

I'm sorry I have no advice but I wanted to say I really admire you for trying to get an education so you can support your kids better later. Hope you figure something out soon.

Hey mamas..

I can truly say I commend you for doing the right thing and that's going out there to get an education so you can do better for your child and yourself! Second off, talking to DHS or something of government assistance should have some type of childcare services for people that don't have no sitter or something along that lines.. I know that can be a process but at least finding out the information like you already did beats a blank..

I know you would rather not do this because you can only trust so many people but sometimes your school could help with finding you childcare while your in your classes, either putting up some ad or whatever the case may be.

I hope you find some luck, i know how it is personally trying to find reliable people especially ones who you can depend & trust on.

If you ever want to talk.. PM me...

Take Care mamas!
