I am a single mom of 2 girls, 18 months old and 7 year old. I am in my second year of college for vet tech degree and will be graduating the summer of 2015. I am currently on social services , rent paid and food stamps...no money to buy other stuff like diapers, cleaning supplies, etc.... I am looking for a weekend job because that's all I can work right now, I only go to school on Wed. nights but I have to be here to take my daughter to school, pick her up..bring her to gymnastics and all that stuff all week, as I am their only provider right now. I have a little car that's struggling to get through the winter and I barely ever have gas....I have to borrow money all the time from people and its embarrassing. I feel like a huge piece of #$#@ because I cant provide for my kids the way a mom should...and even though I am going to school to better our future, I feel hopeless at this point right now. I have had interviews like crazy but no luck at getting the job. Sometimes I wonder what to do next, am I doing the right thing...or should I just give up. All the other moms at my daughters gymnastics can take their kids out and do stuff with them, my daughters grandmother pays for the gymnastics and I feel like everyone there knows that I am the "Struggling single mom" and I hate that...
