I'm new to the site and just looking for some advice and comfort. Well, I'm a young mom. I'm 21 with a 3 year old and I live with my grandparents and younger siblings. Our parents are estranged drug addicts, and I never had any emotional guidance or taught how to figure out my feelings. My grandmother helps on occasion with my child, but mostly she is very controlling and tries to take over my parenting. My child's father had a bad injury at work and became strung out on pills and abusive, so I decided to leave him a few months ago. I also just made it into an RN program, so I'm fully dependent on my grandparents and child support. I want to show them how grateful I am and I do this by always being a wonderful parent and studying like I should, ect. But my grandmother is so negative towards me. I'm very alone and distraught, as I have no friends. What should I do? I've gained weight, I barely take care of myself...I just feel so bad. I would thrive if I could have my own place with my child and not have to worry about arguments and disrespect. It really tears me apart.

I'm really sorry to hear about this. idk how much help I'll be with this comment but I wanted to reach out and say that you aren't alone. My situation is some what similar to yours, and I think you are so brave for leaving him and continuing on with your schooling. i think you'll be such a strong parent for your child because of what you have gone through and what you continue to go through! I hope by next year I am where you are. If you ever need a friend to talk to I'm a very busy stay at home mom but I would be willing to swap email info:)
