Some good advice there, I’ve been in a similar place mentally, although not with the children but with a relationship and my mental health deteriorated. Don’t feel shy or sit back when asking for help-a trip to the doctors to get support I would always recommend – I did and taking medication was the best thing for me, it gave me the crutch and boost I needed to get me to where I am now 😊 which is a single mum, pregnant again after another disastrous relationship…. 😂 BUT I have built my resilience and discovered mindfulness, and now spend time on ME when not with the kids, taking good from the bad (actually it’s a good rest and allows me to focus more on the kids when I’m not working and we have our weekends together). There is light at the end of the tunnel, you can do this-talking really does help. Not dwelling on the past (which slips into my mind a lot, although I need to sort that out), but looking forwards to a positive future where you will meet someone who deserves you.
