I will try to summarize. Kids are 9, 4, 4 and 2. Boyfriend is father to youngest 3. We are currently homeless, getting evicted from his mothers. Oldest son stays with his paternal grandparents and that's fine. I was recently diagnosed with bipolar. I am just getting back into therapy and hopefully soon get medication. Boyfriend just got new job and is working
60-70 hours. Don't have much support because kids are a handful. We are headed to motel. My parents offered to help with a security deposit so we don't have to stay there but I have bad credit and an eviction from last year so don't even see us finding a place easily. Basically, I am a mess and I feel like the kids should go in foster care until we get situated. I am very emotionally unstable right now aside from our potential living conditions. CPS was already called by his mom out of spite although there were no obvious issues for them to be concerned with. I know I would risk losing them for good and am scared they could be placed with bad people. I used to be a good mom and we were never rich but had a home and everything else we needed. I've literally lost my mind and it's so hard to get through the days now. I tried to commit suicide a couple weeks ago, that's how sick I am and I am not getting any better when I have 5 people to worry about before myself. Please help me think this through. My boyfriend is the only one stopping me but he's not here to help other than paying a motel bill.
