I never thought about asking for help but I'm exhausted. I have a wonderful boyfriend. He is 30 and I am 27. We have been together a year and a half. I have 2 daughters. He has 1. We didnt kmow about his daughter until 6 months after we met. Long story. I will spare the details. His daughter is 2. My problem. His babys mom is lazy and doesnt work but asks for money nonstop. We send child support and pick the daughter up and take her home. She lives about 100 miles away. About 50 dollars in gas every 2 weeks. I am making myself sick over all of this. I am beginning to resent my boyfriend and his daughter. I dont know why I am feeling like this. I feel like a horrible person because he is so good to my children. My 3 year old thinks she is his. I am good to his daughter, who couldn't love a baby. But I'm mad and sad at the same time. Why do I have to bust my butt to take care of my kids and his while his babys mama sit on hers all day living off of us and her grand parents? I know we should send child support, I get that. I'm a mom too. But why do I feel this way? I just want to cry.
