Hello, Im new to this. Im a young mother, I had my son when i was 18. I am 20 now. Lately Ive been going through a lot with my childs father, he and I are not together. Ive been clouded with a feeling of overwhelming nothingness. I feel exhausted and drained phsyically, mentally, and emotionally. My son is what keeps life in me everyday and without him Id be nothing. What do you do when you feel like life keeps knocking you down and never letting you get up. I work hard to provide everything I can for my son, but how do I balance myself out mentally and emotionally. I feel beaten and abused and weak, and I have no energy to move out of bed... help me.

I'm going through something similar right now... life as a single mom is tough but you have to remember that your child comes first! It might be hard right now but maybe if you start doing something that you used to love doing again or find a new hobby you might start feeling a little better. Distract yourself by doing something for you. Or do something fun with your son. If you believe in therapy try that too (I did it while I was pregnant and it definitely prepared me for single motherhood)! Hope you get to feeling better!
