I've tried everything!!! I can't get my toddler to nap. Bedtime is even a struggle. It's weighing heavy on me as I am dealing with postpartum. I'm a single mother that works at home. I feel like I might lose it soon. Everyday is such a struggle. Any other moms relate?

It could be a phase and your toddler can be back to napping in few weeks, but it could well be that the naps are over. Many children at that age stop their naps, I think the sign that they don't need their nap is when the bedtime becomes difficult.
Mine didn't want to nap around that time and I thought she is done with them, but then few weeks later she wanted to nap again. She still naps on some days and she is 3 years old. I don't push it on her though, if she doesn't need it thats fine with me.

My daughter stopped napping at 2, very rarely does she nap for us at home anymore. Most days she still naps at daycare though. Her brother also stopped napping at 2. On rare days my daughter does nap at home bedtime becomes a nightmare.
