Single mom is stuck!

I’m a single mom of a 12 yr old and 11 month old twins. I had to move in with my daughters dad because I had nowhere to go. And since I don’t have anyone to watch my twins I didn’t go back to work plus I don’t want to go back because the father of my twins works there and towards the end of our relationship he was being very verbally abusive to me and acting crazy so I don’t want to see him. Since I’ve moved in with my daughters dad he’s been very different and acting like I’m invisible sometimes telling me mean things he uses my car like if it was his and doesn’t ask me for permission anymore and when I do want to go somewhere he will ask where I’m going and gives me this vibe like I can’t go nowhere. I’m trying so hard to move out but it’s hard and I feel like I’m drowning here. I don’t have anyone to talk to and I just feel stuck and worthless.


Welcome to Heart Support.

Your situation really does sound difficult. Your daughter’s father is taking advantage of your vulnerable position, and there’s really not a lot you can do about it until you can find a way to gain more independence. I don’t know what’s available in the way of subsidized daycare, which would enable you to work. Do you have any family that could help out with the twins? I hope you can work something out, and find employment somewhere else where you don’t have to deal with an abusive ex.
