Home › Online forum › Gingerbread Forum › Hi from a newbie
Just thought I’d drop by and say hello. I’ve been on my own now for nine months with a 9 year old and a nearly 3 year old, following my divorce last year.
These last few weeks I’ve been feeling quite low and lonely so thought I’d check it this forum to chat with others in the same boat..
Speak soon x
Ive been on my own about the same length of time.
Its natural to have low and lonely days, I do some days although they are thankfully getting less.
I joined this forum a few months ago, its been great talking to people who understand you, you don’t feel so alone.
Take Care Alan
I was riding high for a few months as it wasn’t a happy marriage and I was relieved to be out of it, so it has come as a bit of a shock to start feeling quite low again.
As you say though, it’s to be expected. Single parenting is hard! I’m glad to have found this forum though and am sure it will help!
I was married for 25 years, we had been together 28, until she decided to leave me and 5 children for a 21 year old. You are not wrong its hard being a single parent, im 55 so feel ancient some days lol.
Gosh, that’s hard . There was no infidelity in my case, the marriage had just run its course.
5 kids! What ages are they? I find it hard with just the two..
Hi three boys aged 8,10 and 18 and two girls aged 12 and 15, they certainly keep me busy!
