You need to write out your goals, then write out your action plan for achieving them. Once you have it on paper, you can see your progress and it won't be so overwhelming. This will also give you a chance to examine your obstacles and formulate several options to overcome them, compare them and move forward with the best options.

Just know you are not the only in this situation hun, Good luck, and stay strong, your girls need you! and don"t feel ashamed to ask social services for help, that's what its there for.

Find a play group in your area. This can give your children others to play with and you some adult social time. This is also a great way to meet some new friends that might be able to be a support to you. Finding a good church to attend would also be benificial to you. I'm sure you can make some supportive friends at church. Councilling is always free at a church if you need someone to talk to.

I would recommend trying to find a local book club. These groups usually only meet once a month or so, making childcare a minimum. The reading will give you an escape, as well.

Hi Ronelle.



If you'd like to just chat with another mom, I'd be happy to do that with you. I am a SAHM with a 3 year old son. I have been married for 13 years to my wonderful husband. I'd like to help you not feel quite so alone, even if it is long distance and over the internet.

The key is to take your time even tho you feel like you dont have time to take your time because you have two babies thats not true. You have to take your time weight out your options no matter if its school or work see what it is you really wanna do be very serious about it make your own path and dont let anyone take you off your path. Nobody said it was gonna be easy but once you get to where you need to be mentally you will be ok. But like I said its gonna take time so take your time see exactly what you need and want to do . Dont be afraid of dissapointments its apart of life and so is what your going thru. Its your life
