    I'm 21. I have an 8 month old son by my drug addict ex. Of course I didn't know he was using drugs until after I moved in with him. I found out after he overdosed on the toilet. I thought that might be rock bottom but it wasn't. Then he progressed from milder drugs to hardcore drugs, made me lose my job, stole everything valuable I had and sold it for drug money, lies all the time, steals from his own family, etc. I'm ready to cut ties the only problem is I have no where to go. We still live together, broken up. After my mom passed away my whole family fell apart so I moved 200 miles away. No one in my family cares enough to take me in. I have no close friends because I've been battling social anxiety, ocd, depression and general anxiety since 5th grade. I don't even enjoy life and never really have. Only reason I'm hanging on is because of my son. I'm giving up hope I just hate that God abandoned me like this.

    Welcome to the forum, DeepPeace, in Jesus name, he loves you and cares for you. God has not abandoned you. It is always we who sin and the old man Satan waits to cause trouble for us at every opportunity.
    I will pray that as you come to the Father, that he will bless you with his presence.

    I don't live in America ,but surely some Church can help you for a while .Have the courage to try approaching some -we all get rejected at sometime .So pray sincerely and long to Jesus before you knock on those doors .
    May God bless you and keep you safe .

    Keeping you in prayers, you are in a rough situation and need support and help, go to your local church or you can also ask help through WIC WIC Contacts | Food and Nutrition Service
    I hope this helps. I believe you are elligible for assistance from this program. Don't give up, God will help you, keep praying and reach out. <3

    WIC is a gov program aimed to help women and children. Call them and ask for resources.

    Deeppeace, I don't see how any of this was or is your fault. You are doing the best you can, but life is very difficult at times, or even most of the time. I can only imagine the heart break, horror, anxiety and turmoil you are going though and have been going though. I have been in some very, very hard spots in life also.

    I really want to help, but I am not sure how to. But I wanted to post to you that I did read what you wrote and can empathize.

    If you need a person to rant to and/or talk to who listens very well and is also a women in her 20's, is not close to their family or friends, and has OCD, depression, and anxiety (and a few other things) please PM me. Perhaps you will feel more comfortable giving more details ( like what country you are from, etc. ) and I might be able to then offer more help (such as assistance available to you there, etc. ). I will certainly try my best.

    There are people who care. You just need to get in contact with them. Don't give up. Life can be amazing and you and your son can have a happy, safe, and enjoyable life that you deserve. I know you probably don't feel like that will ever be possible, but it is the truth.

    Sending you virtual (((hugs))). Don't give up!

    Hi
    how very hard you have had it. I very much feel for you.
    God has not abandoned you. He loves you. He gives all of us free will to live as we wish. We all make choices. Life happens and we must deal with it.

    Firstly, do you accept Jesus as saviour and Lord? If so, take everything to his feet in prayer. He will help you but only if you ask.

    I suggest you ask for help in getting a flat or other accommodation for you and your baby. Your situation is very urgent and difficult.

    I do hope you find solutions and trust in God. X

    I find that writing is a great way to work out problems in life.
    This being your first post in a forum full of strangers that you
    don't know, yet battling social anxiety suggests that writing
    would be a very therapeutic outlet for you time.

    You might also be able to help others through your writing.
    I'm including links as to how you could write and possibly
    make money with your story as well! The cost of publishing
    is very low thanks to the advent of Amazon Kindle publishing.
    Good Luck!
