So I am a single mom to a 15 month old boy. I go to school full-time online, I don't work, and spend all day everyday with my son. I haven't gone out since July of last year. Lately things have been so stressfull, my son's father went back to jail, I've been doing on my own from day one, but really need some support. My family has fallen apart, I don't get along with much of them, plus my son's other family adds twice as much stress. I've lost so many in my life because I chose to leave my past behind, so all friends disappeared. I've just been so stressed out and really would like time out, but I don't really have anyone to go with or anything to do. Plus to top it off all day everyday my son is crying and whinning because he gets so bored and doesn't have much to do. I try my hardest, but I can't afford daycare, and I can't work because school gets in the way. I feel like I'm taking out all of my frustration on my son, and he doesn't deserve it at all. I know he doesn't understand, but it is so hard when all you talk to is a 15 month old child all day everyday. I really just don't know what to do. I don't know who I am anymore, I don't know what to do. Sometimes I wish I could rewind to the past and live my life, but then I wouldn't have my son. He is my world and I love him more then life itself, but sometimes I just need a break. Any suggestions?
