A couple of years ago one of the teachers 2 daughters was behind them at the weekend. I was not there and my daughters did not know the teacher was there.
They were approached by somebody selling drugs. For a few seconds they did not realise what was happening but as soon as they realised the drug pusher got some foul unladylike language out of them. The drug pusher shot off.
The teacher said she did not normally condone this type of language coming from her pupils but she said she was very pleased it happened in this case.

You go girl. Stay strong and do not look back. A relationship with his son may come in time, but you focus on you, your future and your son. You deserve someone who places you a priority over drugs.

I am glad that you have the things you need to get by with as far as a home, food and utilities and such. It makes a big difference. When my ex left me because he was so done with marriage, I had to basically start all over again by working at a fast food place because it was all I could find quickly to bring in money. But I did have help with my parents and sister too so some money came from those two sources. I also had a friend that had gone through a divorce a few years before me so she was support in that way. I also still had a very close bond to my kids which was another thing that aided in the big changes coming to us all.

Good for you for doing what you needed to do. Now I would contact support services in your area for help with anything you might need such as housing, food, health care, or just someone to talk too. A lot of area churches might be able to point you to places that can help with what they do not have services for. Also contact family if you have them still in your life and get them to help you too as a support system at the least.
