I will start by saying this: My son is ten months old. Ten months I have been with him every second of the day. I am so happy to be able to do this!

But I am burnt out, too.

I am a single mom of 2 kids. The other one is 12. I don't have family nor friends. I work from home 2 jobs. Days go by without my phone ringing (outside the job context). I have no family (close) nor friends (they disappeared one by one when I could not hang out anymore and my son was screaming too loud).

I desperately need other moms to interact with. I am not looking into dating, so I do not need THAT type of interaction. I do not have time to go out (even if I could afford it), not without my son anyway. I need adult interaction, I need support, I need to exchange advice and support. I need to offer friendship, so that I know that I count out there in the world. I need to ask someone, sometimes, if what I do is right; I need to run by someone my ideas. Oh, I must sound so pathetic, yet thisi is my SOS to you. I REALLY need interaction! I joined meetup website and twice was a fiasco, people did not show up, or we had incompatibilities. I keep trying. There must be someone out there. Echo??? PLEASE? Thank you!

Hi, Kim. I feel that my problem is so small in the light of yours! I am ashamed. Thank you for taking your time to reply to my message. I live in Los Angeles. Sure, I would love to stay in touch with you.

Hi Alice,

My name is Kim. I'm 29, and a single stay-at-home mom also. I live in MN, where are you from? I know what it's like to have no interaction outside of the confines of your home. My son is almost 6, and he is my only one. In the past 2 1/2 years he has been diagnosed with ADHD, Anxiety Disorder with OCD tendencies, Mood Disorders, and they are trying to rule out Aspergers. He is very aggressive, he will have 2-3 hour tantrums just hitting screaming attempting to bite, and his moods are horrible most of the time. It is so hard to find a sitter let alone a daycare that will take a child like this so I can't work. He is in a special school to help with all these issues and we have therapists in and out of our home all the time. Hopefully soon it will get better.

I'm here if you want to talk. We can swap stories and ideas.

Kim

Hi Alice,



I'm a single mom to 2 kids also. 7 and 3.5. I do have family and my ex takes them once a week. I do meetup and have had success with it. Keep trying! I have met some great people on there. It is hard, and I can imagine very hard for you with no one around. Where do you live? We live in MI.
