I am going to have to do what I've been too afraid to do for years. Stand up and be a single mother. Since I left my husband I've been leaning on someone so at I could make it and feel more secure about being a student and single mom. When I got sick and had to leave school, I leaned even harder, afraid that I couldn't do it on my own. Now it seems I have no choice but to get back in school, cut my losses and just live the best I know how until I graduate and can do better. I'm really scared. But I was scared when I left my husband too...and I did it anyway. I need to take that same stance now.
