I absolutely hate being a single parent. I feel like my life is as far away from life as a mum I dreamed of and there’s no way of getting it back. I live in a horrible house that is a dump because I can’t do any of the jobs needed. When I do find some money for someone to do them, I find that the trade are unreliable or it takes months for them to fit me in. My family aren’t close by and I struggle with the lack of wrap around care offered by the school and child minders are also in short supply. On top of that, this year I won’t have my child for Easter or Christmas. I really hate this cruel system that forces me to be away from my child.
im totally fed up and can see no way to better anything
