i'll be 21 in may and ive been on my own with my daughter since she was 3 months old by the time she was 8 months old i decided i had to go back to school because although i love my daughter more than anything i needed to get out and do something for myself.i found it very isolating to be home with her all the time my biggest help was finding mommy and me groups play groups and even just taking her to the park because you are almost 100% guranteed to run into other moms and have a little adult contact which can make you feel so much better.

Well i've been coping with fine up until this past week, I've just been feeling really isolated and lonely, i thought it might help to talk to other mums in the same sort of situation. I have my family and friends but none of them are single mums so they can't really understand. Every day i'm looking for somewhere to go just to get us both out of the house.
