Ok so I have never posted on anything before so please forgive me if I dont do it properly. Plus I'm the world's worse speller.
 
To start my story off. ( Guess thats how its done) Im a 28 y/o single mother of a 18 month old lil boy. When I got pg w my son. My life was the happiest I believe it had ever been. It wasnt perfect by all means and wasnt headed in the right direction either. I work 6 days a week as a bartender and party when I was working. I was told in my early 20s that I couldnt have childern but my lil miracle came. I had to quit my job b/c of the high rish pg. And ended up moving back in w my parents. Now my dad and I have never seen eye to eye on anything ( been told its b/c we are so much like) but we do love each other. After giving birth to my son. I started working as a dispatcher at the sheriff office that my dad is 2nd in conmand at. Very stressful job. and I dont make much over min wage. My son's father doesnt have anything to do w him. NO support at all. Which is better then him having rights to my son in my book. Well I have dealt w things to where I am at the point of just giving up. At home everything has turned into a constant battle and at work also. I have made comments about moving out. where my mom has treathen to take my lil boy. Says they can provide for him better. Which isnt a lie. They both work and Dad has 2 jobs. So as far as money goes they can. They do not mistreat him if anything he is spoiled rotten. But still I am is MOTHER. And the thought of losing him as drove me so far into a serve depression that I drove a wedge between I wonderful man I had been seeing for the last 6 months and my best friend of 14 years. I lashed out at them and said awful mean hurtful horrible things to them. I cant control my emotions anymore. The man Ive been seeing atleast is still talking to me, but my bestie has answered her phone or email that I have sent her. Sometimes I just wana crawl in the corner and disappear. Thank for reading my post and letting me vent. I completely lost and unsure of what to do next.

Welcome to the healing well depression forum. If you are working and can afford a place of your own with your son, your parents cannot take him away just because they have more money. They have to prove you as an unfit mother. You have a right to raise your own son. So don't let them scare you.

I think getting a place would be good for you.

Do you go to any counseling? It would help you and they could help you to get out on your own. There are resources for young mothers like yourself. The state has a lot to offer, they often will even pay your house payment or rent. Give you a food card and medicaid. Think about this. It might be the ticket for you.
