Hi I am a 31 yearold single mom of a two and half year old. I am trying to start over and become a little more self sufficent and not rely so much on my family. My son's father is not in his life, in fact he signed his rights away, which is a good thing for the both of us.... I work full time and I am looking for another job so I can suport myself and my son without my family, I am a little worried of what this might do to my son, with me working and being away from him... All of my friends are married or they do not have nay kids so it is hard for them to relate... any advice

The only advice I can give is something that I heard on the radio. It was a Doctor that worked part time and when asked why he worked only part time, he said "I never had a dieing patient ever say they wished they spent more time at work" I know that it is hard to make ends meet but utilize assistance when ever possible. It's not a hand out if it is used to better your quality of life and it is never taken advantage of. You'll get through it. It just takes time for your turn to come around and have everything go right.

I'm sorry, I don't understand your story about the doctor. What does it mean ?

As long as you can make ends meet, concentrate primarily on the time spent with your family.
