Wow, sounds like you need a new boyfriend.
He isn't going to change without help. And me being in recovery myself I can tell you addicts are very, very, selfish people. You need to get out of this relationship ASAP!!!!!

I have bad days too. I don't have a car right now, but I am working on getting one. Have you finished school? That may be one thing to focus on. But this boyfriend is toxic.
I know you probably depend on him for a lot but you need to get some help and assistance in your area.
I'd be depressed too.
Do your parents live nearby? Can they help you? Even just taking a walk helps.
Go to and try to mingle with some moms. You'd be surprised at what they're willing to do.
They may help you get to play groups. Do you have public transportation? If you do take a bus. Get out of the house, you deserve it.

For me I pray! A LOT... i look at my childrens faces and think about what in life I could teach them or show them... i found a church that i went to I dont care for all of the people but even just 1 friend will help for the days you just need a shoulder to lean on. I even called a play group leader once and asked if they had someone near me that may be able to pick me up for the play group. Keep trying keep praying and trust that you are a wonderful MOM because you if you were not you wouldnt make the effort to help yourself.
