Having Trouble Finding Support

Hi There,

I am a single mother to a 3 year old, and I am having trouble finding any type of support. The friends I have made growing up I am starting to realize are not the type of people I want in my life anymore. And I feel like the feeling is mutual. We are going in different directions. Right now I'm in a place where I feel like I have absolutly no one. Not even my own mother. I cant keep friendships with people I can see a friendship because I have no availability for them. I am really struggling to gain a support group of people in my life to help me. The people I do know just want to take from me instead of give the same in return. I am more than willing to help but when I ask for a babysitter or some help or even someone to go do something with, it doesnt happen. I need help finding good supports in my life.

When I had little kids at home the best friends I had were other mothers. I spent a lot of time in places where like-minded moms would go, the library for story time, the pool for swim lessons, the park and I found a mom and me playgroup that met once a week. I am still friends with these women even though are kids are older.
What do you mean by you have no availability?
