Heres my story.
Im a mother of a five year old. My mother has had him for the last 2 years. I am in his life. I have moved into a house with my mother and sister. i live downstairs in a seperate suite. They both work and I spend the days with my son upstairs. I am pregnant with my second child and am in a relationship. Im trying my best to be there now and its taking a bit to be used to he also has some behavioral issues that im just experiencing because i havent been there the last 2 yrs regularly. Im trying my best to be the mom he needs now but i have just been thrown into taking on everyday tasks for both households while they do what they want for their lifes. But when i dont handle things the way they want because i dont have the experience and coping skills i need for him. Im yelled at and blamed for his behavioral issues. I know there is a lot of anger in them for having to take on the responsibility of raising him. They decided that when they took him away from me instead of handling it together as a family and helping me cope and make it the best for him. i have a lot of issues with my mom since i was a little girl that have made it hard for us to have a healthy relationship. I feel so stressed and stuck. Im trying my best and dont know what else to do to make this better. i feel unheard and that my needs are not being met. I just want to be in his life completely and fully as i know i am a good mother.
