The main source for most of my anxiety and depression lately is the fact that my son has leukemia and our household bills are starting to pile up. My problem is this, I have been doing a lot of research and and finding some good sites with other parents who are going through this, but no SINGLE parents. I know I can not be the only single parent in the world going through this. Talking to other parents is okay, but when they are all married or involved with someone it all ends up being "I go to my husband/wife/partner when I am feeling down". Well, I don't have anyone. My son's father was a deadbeat before he was diagnosed and has become even worse now. So, please, please, please, if you know a single parent that is going through or has gone through something like this and they would be willing to share their experience with me, please let me know. Thanks.
