I have been back at work for 2 weeks now. And am working 5 days in a row. Like a "normal" job. And my dad recently told me that I needed to get someone to help out at least one day because I work 5 days straight. I am a bartender and typically go in around 3 with a 39 minute commute and get off between 8 10 with another 30 min commute.
My anxiety is already increasing daily because out house is a mess and I feel like I can't keep up with my chores and the baby plus get ready for work.
Now because he said that I feel like I can ask for anymore help. They don't help at all when I'm home, just when I have to go to work. This is fine. But I feel like I'm drowning. I don't know what to do. I know we could probably use help, but I can't afford it and I don't think it's their place to pay for it.
I need to go talk to whomever it is with the state to see about my options. I knew being a single parent with no support from the other half would be hard. But I never imagined I would feel like I'm slowly suffocating and drowning.
Maybe I'm being melodramatic. But it just hit like a ton of bricks.
