I am 28 years old and I now am raising three children under the age of 5 on my own. Their dad and my husband is addicted to heroin/meth and is constantly in and out of jail. I find myself spread thin between working full time, dropping the kids off at school/daycare, keeping a clean home, cooking healthy meals, and caring for these beautiful girls. I am exhausted, lonely and am beginning to grow resentful towards the man I once loved. He doesn't seem to understand the weight of his absence and feels no obligation to help me support our children financially or emotionally. I hate what he has done to our family, mostly the children. My main goal in life is to love/support them, and mold them in to healthy/productive people. I am here for support and advice. I feel broken, unwanted, and un loveable. My parents abandoned me due to drugs and this has triggered a lot of painful emotions from my childhood. I just don't want my children to go through the pain I did growing up. I feel like a horrible mother for giving them a father like that.

I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this stuff. It's no fun to feel alone in parenting. Hang in there. I know your girls appreciate all you do for them!
