Hello, I am the mother of a 7 year old autistic boy. My son's father left shortly after his birth and my entire family dis-owned me because I am asian and my son is half black. I have raised my son alone pretty much since birth. I haven't any family or any friends. It's been beyond hard with no support...but we've managed ok. I was re-married for a very short time (one year), but then my husband died from a heart attack. Because of that, I am fortunate to get his income and I do not work. We moved to a very rural area shortly after we wed...and by rural I mean 580 people...surrounded by towns of 800 people. No big cities with in 80 miles. I do not know a soul. I haven't really spoken with anyone in about 2 years and I am not sure I can bear it anymore. I need to get out and do things...I don't know how to handle that. I'm not sure what to do. I can't get a job...I need to be home for my son. And even if I got a job during school hours...what about all those days off they have? snow days, teacher conference days. How do I juggle a schedule around that? I am not a church goer, so church is out. If I don't talk to another human being soon, I might lose my mind.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
