Yup. I so feel this. Raised my daughter as a single mom struggling to make ends meet, dealing with PCOS and endometriosis and autism (though I didn’t know it then) and ADHD and anxiety attacks and people would always say I’m not alone — then those same people would go home to the people who love them and help them and leave me with the weight of the world on my shoulders.

Keep writing and I’ll keep clapping my heart out and hope it helps even a little. ❤
