I'm a single mother of 2 girls-ages 13 & 9. Their father & I split up 3 years ago, but have been divorced only a year. I'm raising my daughters on my own. I receive no child support or financial help from him at all. At this current time, he hasn't held a job in almost a year. He's an alcoholic, which is the reason I divorced him & he lost his job, along w/the girls health insurance. I work a full time job & part time job. Are there any other mothers like me on here? If so, what advice can you give? My house is a mess b/c I work 6 days a week. I feel guilty for not being able to spend as much time w/my girls as I'd like. But then again, I can't quit the 2nd job right now. It helps make ends meet. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
