My boyfriend and I have a 9 month old son. Our relationship has been rocky but we just kept it going. Lately I've known that I don't want to be with him anymore because I don't want my son to grow up watching us get into heated urguments plus he's been in another state where we are supposed to move taking care of things on that end then the baby and I are supposed to join him at the end of this month. I've experienced so much peace that I have doubts about joining him. Last night we got into another stupid urgument about me not listening to him because our son started crying and I went to tend to him so today he suggested that we should break up and I agreed. My question is, do you think I should still move to his state so he can be near our son or should I just continue to live in my current state? The problem is, I haven't worked since our son was born but I know I can go back to work here in a short while compared to moving to another state and looking for work and daycare etc.

Thanks. I actually took a quick course in medical transcription years ago but I never worked as one. I'm a practical nurse. Can you recommend a company for medical transcription? It would be nice to work from home while getting myself together to go back to working out of the home.

Stay where you're at if that makes you comfortable. Do you have family close by that you are close with? Stay close to them. Just because he's the father doesn't mean he has to be around the child if he is a bad influence, IMO. I am a stay-at-home mom to two kids and work as a medical transcriptionist from my home and love it. I will definitely just do that as my job until my youngest (7 weeks) is in kindergarten. You could look into that. I used Career Step for my school. Good luck with everything!

Whats best for you? Will you have the support you need in a different state? Put yourself first. So you can take care of your son to the best of your abilities.
