Hi Fibrofog and welcome!
Oh, your plate is full like many here- I can relate to you on alot of things you talked about. I have been a single parent most of my life and it's a tough, tough job.
Just my opinion, but I would not move in with a brand new boyfriend. It could be "from the frying pan into the fire" situation. And you would have to be so far away from your daughter. Not an option. She needs you. I don't know how Florida is but in Minnesota they have numerous agencies that can help rehabilitate you back into the work place or maybe even working from home. Also they have financial assistance, food assistance and medical. You are not a bad mother!! You did not ask for any of this and it sounds like you are doing the best you can.
I am now just thinking of what I can do too. I got hit hard with fibro this last spring and have been off work ever since. I have also applied for disability and was turned down. Now I get to jump through more hoops and am appealing it.
I take this one day at a time and try not to let this overwhelm me but it has been "hard." The group here have been my "rock" as they know exactly what your going through!
I have an appointment over lunch and need to get ready- but hang in there and keep posting- we'll be here for you. GamJill
