Hi im maria 47 from wigan. Im trying to re build my life after my husband walking out 17 mths ago never heard off him since. Made us homeless taking our dog. My daughter has had so many ops in the last 18 months im just at the end:( x
I really feel for you in this situation. My ex of 6 years done this to me, never left us home less but left our home empty. He doesn’t bother with his son and neither do his family. He left his own son and my eldest 4 children to a previous relationship with nothing at all. He refused to and still does refuse to pay maintenance, which leave me going hungry 4 times a week at least. Being alone with people around you is the worst feeling in the world. I do try my best for my kids but never feel like it’s enough.
I dont have a family support network like many people, it’s juts me and my kids. It’s really scary a lot of the time and very lonely all of the time.
Sorry if I’ve side tracked off the original topic, but they say things do get easier. 9 months since a train wreck of a separation and I’m still looking for the’ better days’.
I’m hoping to get the hang of this forum and maybe meet some people in the same kind of situation.
Wether it be a week or a year from now, things have to get better 💜 xx
Hi, single mothers. Amazing people! I never thought I’d be writing on here. My life was made, happy family, mortgage, two children.. being a single mum has opened my eyes to so much and made me stronger. I admire single mums. Would love to set up a group for single parents to chat and have coffee, discuss those bad nights and feelings of pure emptiness that nobody understands. It’s hard, every single day. All the pressure is on you and you feel drained and not good enough. Hearing that your ex is doing so well while you plod along and try to do the best for your children while dying inside. There is a lot to be said for single mothers. Pure strength, love, determination, wine and hope gets us through
I had it all once too. In the blink of an eye it was gone. Times have never been harder than now. The nights when kids are in bed are the longest, loneliest ones. Especially when friends are married and you feel like a burden, even tho they make you feel like you’re not, I still feel like I am.
i feel alone and lost sometimes.After 3yrs I still can’t believe my ex left me and my daughter.He cheated and left me suddenly.Our daughter took 15yrs of fertility treatment to achieve being a family,then he had an affair and leaves us for this woman.i still wake in disbelief some days 😕
