Have you tried a day care center?? When she sleeps try taking a few mins and step out of the room and just let yourself think or take a hot shower with out her in the bathroom place her in her crip and just take sometime for you.

I'm really sorry to hear this! Have you got any near daycare providers? Certain ones may allow you to stay and observe but they will have a hands on team to actually care for your child while you relax for a couple of hours and maybe make some new friends? Take a look online. If you ever wanna chat add me. I'm 21 and have a 3 yr old daughter and a 6 month old son. Try and keep smiling. :)
