I only found out about this site today, it looks really good!

I had my son when I was 16, his dad was killed when I was 20, I am now 29 and I have tried to be strong all these years but now it feels like i'm crumbling.  I have ended up in debt trying to be the best mother I could be and I am really struggling now.  I work full time and do a part time course at Uni but even though I keep busy I seem to spend too much time thinking and getting down.

Even with my wage it is so hard to run a house and provide for my son on one low inclome wage, I can't see a way out of this debt & depression at the moment.  I have a wonderful mum but she doesn't understand why I get down and I don't have any good friends.  Would love to meet someone nice and settle down but the thought of doing that and losing someone is too scary.

My son is amazing so i do feel selfish moaning but he deserves the best and at the moment I feel like I am failing him... 

I am going to have a good look through everything on here.
