How do I manage?

I'm a single mom who is very over whelmed. Domestic Violence survivor still in hiding for safety. Been in many shelters many state's. I'm tired emotionally mostly. Dealing with everything including not knowing when I can start working again and stressing about supporting the baby. Stressed, traumatized, and alone. Baby is 7 months and I feel like I failed him already. Escaped the DV situation when he was 7 weeks old, literally planned it step by step. His dad threatened to kills us, harm Family or kidnap my son. Lived in fear for a very long time. Dealing with the devastating consequences of being held against my will during my pregnancy. My son is healthy was born a bit early but other than that he is well adjusted. How do I move on when my life was taken from me? How do I now raise a child when I am in pieces? I hurt all day everyday and I need to know that my son will be ok.

Oh love, you have not failed your baby, in fact you have succeeded at saving him a life of seeing his mom abused emotionally and physically, and saving him the same fate! I am so sorry you are going through this. You WILL survive this. If you have not gone through the legal channels, I urge you to.

You have done something many women can't. You got out. You are a survivor. As hard as it may be right now, know that you can do ANYTHING! You are an amazing mom. Keep up the good work, and do what you need to do love. Best of luck to you and your little one.
