I’m a single mum to three amazing kids, one of which has multiple rare disabilities. I just feel like I’m failing them. My ex husband left us when our special daughter was born and doesn’t help financially. Working casually doesn’t pay any bills except preschool and fuel.
How do you cope when your kids can eat dinner but you don’t have enough to feed yourself? How do you cope when your kids get upset that they get second hand clothes and can’t get brand new toys?
I feel like I’m letting them down. I had kids while in a stable and happy marriage. We had a disabled child and he kicked me out.
What can I do to lift my spirits that won’t cost me anything? My hairs a mess. My body aches from exhaustion. What can I do?
