I am a single mother of a 2 1/2 year old. His father and I have been split up for good for about 3 months. His father was abusive, our relationship lasted about 5 years. Before that shitty relationship my stepmother was "abusive" she likes to call it discipline i guess, but when you talk shit about my birthmother, tell me i look like i slut when im experiencing make up for the firs ttime, wrap your hands around my neck cuz ur mad at me...??? then i guess u can call that abuse and she has done this numerous times, all while my dad stands by and watches and defends her actions against me. Before that bullshit my dad was either emotionally or verbally abusive, never spent quality time with me, taught me anything of value so here i am raising a 2 year old. Well my dad always was short with me, and i notice im like that with my son. I dont know any other way to deal with him when he just wont listen at all. We have more good days than bad, and i love him to death im there everyday for him, its just really frustrating when i dont know how else to get through to him besides raise my voice, spat his hand or pop his bottom. Im open to learning new ways and im about to start abuse counseling every friday, hopefully this will help with coping skills. Anyways guys any input or advice would be greatly appreciated. im sure im not the only one going through this, actually i know imnot, althought it feels that way sometimes.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
