    hi. I’ve been separated for two years and share custody of my two youngest with my estranged husband (I still can’t call him an ex 😕). I’m not working as I lost my job due to problems attending due to mental health. So I don’t get much social interaction

    the split was complicated, but even two years on, I struggle to come to terms with it

    my main problem at the moment is the isolation when the children are not here  I don’t feel I have any purpose or use when they’re not here  I hate the fact they spend their lives living in and out of a suitcase

    Because I’m not working, i ‘help’ if he needs the children collecting from school on one of ‘his’ days  I grasp any opportunity to spend extra time with them, so end up leaving myself in limbo/on standby

    I’m not really making much sense  I’m lonely  I want to meet new people but I’m also scared of it  I’m 45  This is the second time I’ve been in this situation

    I hate it

    Well a lot of that chimes with me except I have zero access at the moment and it has been so for 4 months. Don’t know if I can meet you, but I can chat.

    You are not alone … I live in a village called Maresfield… come visit!

    Seriously I have experienced the same as you and when your precious little ones are with their dad, then yes you certainly do have a purpose … it took my year to grasp that and I totally get where your coming from.

    Your an amazing mum and Its so hard.

    Where do you live?

    Maybe we could get together and exchange stories and find a little peace.
