I'm 19, married with a 2 year old. My husband isn't the father of my son. We rushed our relationship really fast, and my ex was a physical abuser. I have severe depression, bi-polar disorder, and anxiety. I've dealt with this for 5, going on 6 years. I use to be on medication for it then got off and now back on. I use to be able to control myself but the last 6 months everything has gotten worse. The last month I've felt like I'm hitting rock bottom. My thing is, I'm leaving my husband. I just can't handle it anymore. The things he says to me, does to me, acts toward me just isn't how you treat someone you vowed to be with and love unconditionally. My question is, how do I get housing assistance, day care assistance, job, and stuff of that sort to get in my feet by myself. I will be moving 2 hours away from my current location and really won't have acess to a vehicle at the moment. I know in my heart and mind this is what I have to do to give myself and my son a better life I just feel alone and don't know how to go about doing all this. Please help, I need advice. Where I'm going I will have one male friend who will eventually be my s/o. He treats me like a queen. The way a woman is support to be tested and makes me feel wanted, needed, and accepted. And he's been through my situation.
