I am a single parent and sometimes it feels like the world is out to get me. Does anyone else ever feel this way?

YES! It's so much harder than most people think. I am a single mom to a 18 month old. I worry daily about how I'm going to provide the best life that I can for him. It's almost impossible to get decent help. I want the best for him, and at this time I feel that is me being home with him. It's almost impossible to do... I am currently staying at my mothers home because I can't afford rent anywhere else, I have a full time nanny job (which I can thankfully take my son with me to), I have an at home business, I sell a ton of things on Ebay, and I do any odd jobs that may come up when ever I can - and I still can't seem to get ahead! It's rough.. I wish people would realize how hard us single moms work and what we deal with daily...
