I just need to vent. No advice needed as to take care of me and kids and all of that stuff people quickly say. I have been a Single Parent for a while now and I hate this. Husband had a serious drinking and drug problem and ended up in jail. I know it is only up to him to get tired of it and change if he wants it but meanwhile what do I do besides the usual work, take care of kids, household, problems etc...I am sad, overwhlemed, feel trapped and have no one. Kids have no male role model. They are angry, I am angry. A good friend is what I need to talk to. Someone going through the same thing RIGHT now. Not once upon a time. Someone who is a single mom right now. No boyfriend, fiance, girlfriend, family, or friends. Just mom and kids like me. That is a sincerely single mom. Anyone else out there? I move down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with husband and kids in 2008 now here we,are away from family in Buffalo, New York. I have no one to help me relocate back up there and honestly I don't eant to deal with snow, cold and storms again.
