Hi. Thank you so much for sharing your story – sounds like you felt similar to me in being completely thrown by it. My child is at a special school & gets taken by bus so I don’t meet any other mums. I don’t know how to meet people otherwise, certainly any in my situation. How did you get to feeling stronger? Did it just come after time or did you do anything? People keep saying time is a healer, but even when I’m feeling a bit more positive about being a single mum, I don’t know how I’ll feel I’m control, if that makes sense. I currently feel like I have none! You are right I’m thay I have so much to be grateful for, maybe I’ll start writing some down so thay I can focus on then more. There are other people in much worse positions than me, I’m being very self centred at the moment, so i will try to follow your advice – thank you very much 🙂
