virgin blog. careful, i'm fragile.
By SingleMamaDrama on January 20, 2009
I think I just had a senior moment and I'm only 29. I keep calling my two sons by the wrong names. I'm turning 30 this year and I'm not gonna lie, I'm freaking out a little bit. My life is more stressful than anyone I know. I'm not bragging. I'm saying it because I feel quite alone. I find that other people near me can't relate. Maybe it's a small town thing.
This past year has proved to be one for the books. My son has Leukemia. I am on welfare...because my son has cancer. I get very little emotional or financial support from my son's fathers. Plural? Yes. Two different dads, two different court cases, two different schedules, two times the stress. I've been dating a woman for several years who recently went to rehab for a meth addiction I knew nothing about. I kicked her out. I couldn't afford to live on my own and so I am living with my mother...again.
I know I sound like a nut case but really I'm not. I used to have it all. A great job, my own home. I had everything under control until cancer hit my family.
And here I sit, alone. Because no one I know can relate.
I hold fundraisers to make ends meet but lately my creative side is tapped out.
Let's see...what else?
I guess I'm here in the blog world to try to find my way back to ME. I have put myself on the backburner for a long, long time. I just had a visual of Yosemite Sam shouting "My biscuits are burnin' !" as he sat on hot coals and caught his ass on fire. Well my biscuits are fucking burning. And I just made myself laugh so I think I'll quit while I'm ahead.
Ciao, Shannon myspace.com/supportanthony
