I am a single Mum of a 12 year old with complex disabilities and a 15 month baby.
My 12 year old is in residential accommodation to disabilities (Im still struggling with accepting this and cry often because of this) and I split from my baby’s Dad when I was pregnant.
Dad has lots of involvement with baby but he’s not the easiest and nicest person to co-parent with!
I feel so lonely. I know no other single Mums with babies that I can connect with. I’m gutted that Gingerbread doesn’t have a meet up/support group in my area.
There is a lot of ladies with babies in here, from what i see from the posts.
I feel lonely too, with no friends or family around, and with the lockdown, it really affect my mental health. My area has support groups listed but they haven’t been responding, so i gather its not active.
I’m a single mum on week 5 of lockdown with 9, 4 year olds. We are really privileged to have a garden, wifi and activities we can do but I’m so lonely. I’ve only the one single mum friend who is trying her best to get through the days, and I just feel rubbish I’m not doing enough or am enough, and its exhausting.
Have you ladies tried looking on fb for local single parents support groups? There is an app for meeting other local parents but I can’t remember what it’s called.
