I’m on here as I just need to talk, I’m a busy mum with 3 children, I’m divorced, I’ve been on my own with the children for nearly 5 years now.
I’m fairly sorted in my life, doing up my house, I work , love my job. Kids see their dad every couple of weeks, although sometimes this doesn’t happen if he chooses not to have them.
I’m just so worn out, most of the time I just get on with it, but sometimes I emotionally struggle.
I don’t really have any friends, I know lots of people, but I find making friends quite difficult. I’m not that close with my family either. I don’t really know what else to say really, it’s been a difficult week….
Film night maybe? would a takeaway and some popcorn and a bottle of fizz, and a lazy feet-up weekend with your kids help?
or park run. That works for me. I leave my son (11) on the sofa for an hour with his toast and drink and Ninjago, and I run on Saturday mornings. It gives me time to think, a good place to meet & chat to other adults and feel part of something, and the fresh air & exercise cheers me up.
It’s free. And I’m fitter and have lost some weight. Can’t run if my life depended on it though 😁
