I cant seem to find time to do anything. I'm a single mother due to having been part of a domestic-violence case. I have full custody of my son and have worked out what happened with myself and my mother, I was supposed to go to counseling but i cannot leave my sons sight for things i find unnecessary. I don't know what to do anymore. I find my schedule full and at the same time I feel like I'm doing nothing at all. I go to school at 7am and get back at 12pm and feel like ive missed all day with my son. My mother drops my son of with his dad at 9 and I have him back as soon as i get out of school. I know that I need to study but i cant leave him with his dad after I get out. Before I met his father I used to be active and fun, now i'm stuck in a rut because i gained significant weight after having had my son and I cant seem to find the time to take it off. How am I supposed to find and make time for myself without feeling like I am being selfish?
