i am an oldie for here. I am 51 and have 2 daughters …18 and 15. I have been on my own for 5 years and am still finding it a struggle. If anything it is getting harder.
I have totally lost my confidence and hide away. I love my daughters to bits and try to do everything I can for them. I smile and try to be jolly but by heck a bit of support and a shoulder would be really welcome…..just to talk.
it was my choice to leave so I know I have made my bed etc and the guilt at taking them from their family home is immense.
