Hi, I'm a 40 year old mother of a beautiful 10 year old daughter. Three months ago after several years of problems I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. I am currently seeking to divorce my husband of 12 years after many years of infidelity (on his part) and marital stress. I am to put it frankly a bit terrified of being on my own after all these years and now with added medical bills on my not so great salary. My daughter is not and has not ever been a problem as a matter of fact she is a wonderful child. What I want to know is are there other mother's out there who have my illness and are raising child/children alone? and what are your experiences and tips for a suddenly single mom.
