my son is 2 months old and i stay home with him while my boyfriend works. i got charged with a d.w.i. 2 years ago and still don't have my license back so when i say i stay at home i mean that in the most literal sense. i am so lonely i just cant stand it. i dont see how i could go back to work me being on everyone else's schedule, it was difficult when i didn't have a child and now it seems next to impossible. i dont get to leave my house for days (sometimes over a week) at a time. i feel like a prisoner.

well i could have had it back 2 months ago legally.. all it will take now is money... about another $1500 and since i stopped working i haven't been able to continue paying these fees myself and my boyfreind has only been able to pay for the bare minimum of each payment per month so at this rate it will take another 6 months or so to get it back. i am in the same boat with freinds being a somewhat young mom (im 24) not many of my freinds or old co-workers have babies, all my sisters have kids but they live 2 hours away and im so jealous! 2 of them are in the same neighborhood and the other one is 5 minutes down the road from them they can hang out with each other all the time

When you are a sahm with a young infant, I think it can be normal to not go anywhere for few days even if you do have a license because there aren't many places you can take little ones anyways. I have a car and a license but sometimes we go 3 days without going anywhere and my husband works long hours and is only home every other day. I don't have many friends anymore since I have a family now and most of my friends don't. So yep I get lonely too! When do you get your license back?
