I moved to a new area just before lockdown to get away from my abusive ex.
Now I’m over 100 miles away from everything/everyone I know. I’m struggling to deal with what me and the kids went through and the uncertainty of our future. I feel so alone and my anxiety is keeping me in the house. Any advice would be much appreciated 🙂
Hi mum of3. . You’ve done something really difficult, you’ve gotten away from some one abusive…so you have great strength and courage that maybe you don’t realise… That took guts. This step you took meant having to move away and you’re finding that hard, that’s the downside of this great thing you did. But don’t forget the strength you have.. Maybe it will carry through this next step, the figuring it all out and healing and building you and your kids back up again. You all have taken a bit of a knock.. But you’ll find your feet,you will put a new life together in time.. And it might take time…but you’ll get there…find someone to talk to, to listen to you, call a friend or find a forum or come on here… Anything just to get you feeling better about yourself and help you cope and believe in your self… Its a positive and intuitive thing to reach out and know what you need and you’re doing that even by posting for advice here… So many people experience feeling isolated for lots of different reasons, I have just been feeling it myself lately and have found myself here on this forum for that reason…if you need to post again I hope we as readers and single parents can help…. Be kind to yourself!
