Hi i wont go into masses of detail unless people want to know..Am a single mum of 4 and very much struggling with the loneliness and isolation..Have lost virtually all my friends as i can’t socialise like i used to and I’ve completely lost myself and my identity so having to start from rock bottom with my confidence to make new friends..Anyone in a similar situation who would like to make friends ?
I can totally relate to how you feel, it’s not easy being a parent let alone doing it on your own. Similar with the friends thing too and it’s a shame as it’s one of those times you need your friends the most! I think unless you’ve been through it you don’t get it but reading the posts on here help you feel that little less alone in how you feel!
Thank you all for replying!..I’m suffering pretty bad with depression and theres nothing more that would lift my spirits up then get dressed up and go out but i can’t..I’ve literally got no one who can babysit…My one solid female friend has dumped me over the past year..i feel so lost
