Hi I’m an older mum with 2 children 7 and 13. I seperated from husband in January and even though it was my decision, as I had just fallen out of love after 16 years of marriage. I’m struggling with the feeling of being so low and down and the loneliness is awful. I know lockdown hasn’t helped as I’ve been furloughed and trying to homeschool and cope with how my children are feeling and my own emotions are really difficult. My mum has been my rock.
I’m Manchester way, sorry to hear about being lonely, I think it’s just as lonely being in a loveless relationship which is what happened with me too. Hold on to the positive things like having your mum and try to do fun things with your kids to strengthen your bond with them. If you ever need to chat , I’m here .
