I am completely independent taking care of my children. My immediate family disowned me and my ex husbands family did too. I have family far away that want to help me but I need to gain access to leave. My ex is trying to control me when i have the kids or not. This has been going on for over three years.

You are to be commended for taking the sole responisbility for caring for your children, evern after being disowned by both sides of families. I cannot imagine how hard or hurtful this must be. My prayer is you'll be able to get to the family that is trying to help you. I'm not sure if you have a faith or belief system or not, but the local church may be able to help you if you reach out to them. There may also be some counseling services that could be available. You have my prayers, please take very good care of your self and your children. Keep us posted.

Do you have friends nearby that can help you? Who can encourage and support you? Are you involved in a local support group???
I am sorry to hear how bad things are there. It is tough enough being a mom, much less a single mom. I come from a family who considers one of my siblings the black sheep of the family. She has struggled her way through life for the last 30 + years. It's like the two step (a dance) a step forward two steps back, one step forward, two steps back and around and around she goes. Finally life had gotten way to big for her and she could not handle her situations that she had to deal with. The only thing she could do is call out to the ones in the family who believed in her. She called my husband and me, all we could do is listen to her and encourage her. We told her she needed to find away to make a community of friends. Like going to church on a regular basis. Getting to know people there. Or going to a support group and make some friends there. They will know immediately what you are going through, because they have been there! They can help you over come this position you are in. They can help you regain the confidence you need, the support and encouragement too.
Be wise in the choices you make. Seek wise wisdom, examine your life and how you can readjust it to better your daily walk in life.
My sister has come along ways, has shown great progress. She still has along road ahead of her, but she is taking it a step at a time and is getting there. Because she keeps in touch with the family who loves her for her. Keep, in touch with your long distant family. Let them encourage you and support you. Believe that you can over come this obstacle. Just a step at a time! I will pray for you!
