I live in billings,montana and I want my ds to make friends but I seem to have trouble because of my speech issues and alot of people look at me weird or run for the hills which I go why can they not see just because I act/talk different that I am a mom like them who just want to have friends for both of us along with knowing I love my son to pieces.

I'm so sorry for the trouble you are having. You and your son certainly deserve friendship and respect as does everyone. I can't say that there is any one place better than another but have you considered joining clubs or volunteering? Those are things I did as a lonely single mom. It may also be that a larger city would be more accepting and have more to offer but if you're on a set income you have to be careful about living costs.

I'd be your friend. Sorry that we're not closer.

I agree about considering a larger city. Also, how about a college town? You might increase the likelihood of finding more a more accepting and "enlightened" community for you and your family.

We've been considering a move to NE Wyoming so I would have to bring my DS to Billings for appts. Seems like a great area to me, sorry you're having troubles.
