Single Mom And COVID Long Hauler Says She Has ‘A Lot Of Mom Guilt’
Karyn, a single mom to an 11-year-old son, says she contracted COVID-19 in March 2020, and eight months later, she’s still not feeling well. She says getting sick took away a job she worked hard for – working as a firefighter and EMT -- and she’s frustrated.
“Not having income for seven months now has been really hard, and on unemployment, I was getting $124 a week,” Karyn says. “I have a lot of mom guilt because my son is taking on a lot of responsibility. I can’t even do basic tasks like finish the laundry, sweeping, mopping.”
On Friday’s episode of Dr. Phil, two working moms say they are angry, tired and stressed due to the pandemic, a stepmom claims pro-mask moms are unwittingly abusing their children, and a mom of two who went viral for posting a rage-filled video about her son fainting because he had to wear a mask while playing sports weighs in. Plus, a single mother says moms with partners have no right to complain about the pandemic. Watch more here. And, check here to see where you can tune in to Dr. Phil.
