I've never been a single mom, but I married one. It's going to be difficult, but not impossible. There will be days where you want to literally throw in the towel, but don't ever give up. You have a child depending on you for nearly everything. Focus your energy on taking care of them.
Use EVERY resource you have available. Do not hesitate to use govt assistance - that's what it's there for! Getting in their system can be a PITA with the forms you have to fill out, but keep at it. You'll get there. Start this Monday when they open up!
You'll get into a routine soon enough. Guard your finances like they were gold, because that's all you have. You'll learn to look for sales, coupons, and discounts for everything. Find friends you can lean on. When they offer, take them up from time to time. You'll need a break too!
Just don't give up. You'll be OK... it's not easy, but it IS doable.
