I don't know what else to do. I have gone for a VERY long time now not talking to any adult besides coworkers and the babysitter. My daughter's father lives on the opposite coast, my family that lives near me has not helped me at all, not even when I had a c-section, lived next door, and was living alone with a newborn. I had a couple friends who were there for about the first 6 months, but they have since moved on with their lives and forgotten about us. The last several times I have asked people to watch her so I could get a break they never got back to me with answers. I created a group on meetup, people have joined but no one participates. I don't know what else to do. For the most part I love being a single mom, I love that I get to make all of the decisions, I love watching her grow and reach new milestones. But I can't take being so alone anymore, I need adult companionship too. A hug would be nice
Is there anyone else out there with as little emotional support as me? I am so tired of people saying they know how hard it is, no they don't. They DO have help, they DO get breaks once in awhile, they DO have people to talk to. If there is, how do you get through it? I know this is bothering me even more right now because she has been sick 5 times in the lst 3-4 months, last weekend I got puked and pooped on, and I am just tired.
