Hi, I just want people to talk to if I’m honest, I’ve just moved out of my mums house into my own home with my little boy who is 7 months, I’m finding it very lonely and just wanting to move back home 😔everyone keeps saying it’ll get easier but I’m struggling to see a light at the end of the tunnel 😔 literally find myself getting so upset when I’m not on the phone to someone or if my mum or sister have come round and left 😔22 June 2020 at 8:37 pm #41383
Hey hope you are ok. Congratulations on your move. Its a massive decision to make but well done you. My son was 8 months old when i moved out too so not too much different
I had a terrible flat so it didn’t help the transition but i think it really made me strong. You will get to enjoy it and it will become easy and the norm for you and your son. Take time to settle in and get used to it
I had issues with sons Father and another guy since my son born so i have had to deal with while living alone but i have used support and will not be downbeat too long
Me and my son moved again early last year and its so much better. Once you settle you will love it. Yes it is lonely when people come round and then it all seems to drift off as people are all helping and its busy but then things have to settle and people will also be wanting to help you settle by not being there all time
So take time and use support and dont worry about telling people how you feel too.22 June 2020 at 9:14 pm #41385
I’ll be OK thankyou, just very emotional. Oh not much of a difference at all. It’s just so weird being on my own not having my mums company not even to talk to just knowing someone is there.
Oh no, sorry to hear you had issues with the men.
I hope I do, it’s just a huge step isn’t it, also because it’s council it all happened so quick literally got the keys a couple days after I got told I had been offered it 🤦🏻♀️ so that threw me too.
My mum comes round when she’s not been working as my son it’s so attached to me even if I leave the room he screams and gets himself so worked up so it’s hard to get anything done 🙈
Thank you, oh I definitely will tell people how I feel otherwise ill just be a wrek. Feel free to message me if you need to chat ☺️22 June 2020 at 9:36 pm #41387
Yes deffo use this its a good place to get support from people who are in similar positions
At least you and your son can put your own stamp on somewhere and make it yours. Go for it. You should be very proud of yourself22 June 2020 at 11:29 pm #41388
Hello there. I just joined the forum and read your post and Gingey28 responses. I feel for you. I was in the same position myself. It was the beginning of winter and I felt very low and lonely and pretty desperate. I didn’t think I could cope.
Like what has been suggested, I would grab all the support available even if you think you don’t need it! My nurse said”who ever died from a dirty carpet or a bit of washing up??”! And she was right you know! Stuff all the unimportant things; get comfortable there with your wee lad. Talk to him all the time about what you are doing /watching /want to do. Try to take your time and do a few things that you enjoy and that remind you of ‘yourself’, if you know what I mean? Perhaps get a ‘hippy chick’; it is a waiststrap with a little built22 June 2020 at 11:34 pm #41389
in(!) perch seat or a sling so you have your hands free and can also have him close to you. He is probably a little insecure due to feeling your stress and all the changes. Just remember to chill and get as much rest as you can; you are using a lot of energy! And remember who you are and that you deserve the best because you’re a mummy!13 July 2020 at 7:02 pm #42212
That sounds tough and it’s always scary
and demanding when it just you and a little one to look after? Are there any support groups nearby that are able to help just to not have so many times on your own?
best of luck to you
