So sorry to hear you are feeling so bad today. Being any sort of mother is more tiring than anyone else can realize ; and more so as a single mom, when there is usually less support or someone handy to provide some relief. Though it's disappointing to have to move out of your flat through no fault of your own, maybe it'll work for a while to be with your parents, and someone who can share some of the load in caring for the child, maybe letting you get a bit more sleep ? Simple sleep deprivation is enough to make any of us cranky and irritable -- I'll bet even Mother Theresa was cranky when sleep[ deprived !
Should you menion this to anyone with sense and a heart, they should understand, and should not be ridiculous enough to think you weak at all.
And sorry, but any GP or indee any person, who tells someone in genuine distress to "pull themselves together, deserves to be pulled apart. By wild dogs. IF you can get help ( eg on medical Aid ) see a competent shrink and counsellor
