    I’ve been on my own with 3 (10,15 and 18) children for 4 months now. Doesn’t seem long but its so hard!! The separation was my doing as I just didn’t love him anymore. He was also a factor in my eldest daughters overdose ☹️ Dealing with her mental health plus an angry 15 year old boy and a 10 yr old boy missing his dad whilst still working and trying to maintain my own sanity has led me to look for support here!! Please tell me it gets easier!

    Oh I feel for you. I have 3 kids I’m in my own been 5 years bar a relationship that couldn’t move because of my ex husband. Not having the younger kids. Two are his. They are 7 and 5. The 7 year old has bipolar. Not diagnosed but she’s absolutely horrid. She spits and she hits and kicks. I’ve had enough. My 5 year old has started copying. He’s slamming doors right now. I struggle with everything. They will not listen to me. This is off the back of coming back from his. When it was lockdown he didn’t message or try to call or see them for 3 months. And wouldn’t you know they were good as gold. He’s putting me through a court case. Wanted full custody. Then was offered shared and he refused. Then he didn’t turn up to the hearing. I’ve got the final final again end of Jan. if he bothers. I’ve got fibromyalgia. I have awful pain. My 13 year old daughter is becoming very difficult. She’s ignoring me when I call to ask her to help. Im beside myself.
    Although I can’t tell you what to do. I can help by listening. I’m very sad a lot. I shouldn’t have to live my life as he plans for me. He calls all shots. And what can I do? If he says he can’t have them. I have no choice. But 5-6 years later. Hw should be done with hurting me. But no.
    I did have a niece who kept attempting suicide.
    I think you’re a soldier. You’re dealing g with a lot. I’m currently trying to stop 5 &7 from throwing their juice at each other.
    I am here if you want to reply. I am going to get Them to bed god help me. I’m sorry I’ve banged on about me. I know how you must be feeling. Xx
