    Hi Everyone,

    I haven’t posted on here for a while and just wondered how everyone was getting on with lockdown. I feel like I’ve aged about 40 years in these last 11 weeks…and its even harder doing it by myself as im sure you’ll all agree. Anyway stay strong and hopefully we will all be that little bit closer to our kids and stronger as a family come the end of it all.

    Stay safe

    My partner walked out last week and took his stuff today. Its been horrible as lockdown means I can’t get any physical emotional support from my friends and family. There’s no break from the house to even catch my breath and deal with the emotions.

    What’s worse is my 3 year old has a brain injury and doesn’t sleep, so I too am sleep deprived.


    Sorry I’ve just sort of let loose on your thread x

    No need to apologise at all, its good to let it all out and vent!

    That sounds awful, its hard enough for us in lockdown as it is so can only imagine how awful it is for you right now.


    That must be really hard for you both but I’m sure your doing a grand job!!!

    I had my baby 3 months ago and my husband as decided we are pretty much through. Also have a 5 year old. I am devastated. Not coping at all really. Scared and worried about the future.

    Hi Olra,

    I’m so sorry to hear about the tough time your having. I’m sure you are all of those things and tbh I’m not surprised. But you are strong and although it might not feel it right now your still going, still fighting which means you are coping (even if you can’t see it right now). When my wife left I felt the same about the future so I understand where your coming from but from personal experience its now better in my place than it ever was before..

    Keep going and fighting, it will get better!

    Thank you Tony

    It looks like I will be on my own, separation is on the cards. He says he wants counselling after lockdown but doesn’t think it will work. His feelings towards me have changed. I’m afraid of becoming a single parent, especially on lockdown when I feel I can’t do anything with the kids
