Hi I think I can help you if your interested send me back a note.

Take a deep breath and tell yourself it will be ok, we cant always see the end of the tunnel but i promise its there. Im raising my 4 year old son and dealing with family that doesnt understand me as well and very little help from his father who is getting remarried. You wont get it right every day and thats ok pick yourself up and keep going. You never know how strong you are until you have to be. Keep going you can do it.

It's normal to feel anxiety over how you're going to cope. Being a single mom is not easy, but you can do it, especially if you have the support of your family. I raised 2 children on my own, no help whatsoever from their father, I had to live with my parents for a while. There were a lot of challenges, self-doubts, low moments, and it took a long time to be able to gain full independence, but I did it. Just be patient with yourself, every small accomplishment is a sign you are moving up the right way.
