Being alone and having a child are very different :( If i had a child I wouldn't feel so alone but I wouldn't have a child to not feel alone.
Well I am 'alone' and raising a child and it has its complications. Work has seen me go to many Dr. appointments in 2015 for my arm surgery, UC flare, etc while the 14 year old is typical with braces and acne and glasses/contacts and has many of her own appointments.
With the other parent not participating I am out of the office a lot. Now she just hit her goal of being on a competitive cheer team. She has worked so hard to get all her backflips and stuff nailed down and is fit and trim.
BUT I now have to leave work early 3 days per week to get her to class and they wont allow any misses or lates otherwise she is off the team and we owe them 1k. This is going to put a big strain on me if she continues to be in the early 4:30 PM class instead of the 7:00 PM class. Soon this will get many times worse since we sold our home and will be living an hour away while the new one is built.
I could sure use some help with all this - feels pretty alone to me. Cheer moms seem nice and hopefully helpful with ride shares.
