Hi. Have just joined this site. I am a single mum to my 17 month old daughter. I live in malvern, Worcestershire and have no friends or family nearby. I am starting to really struggle with feeling very lonely despite having my daughter to look after every day. I suffer with anxiety so I find that going to groups is a really tough thing to do and I have tried groups in the past and struggled to make conversation with others. So hence why I have joined on here to see if it can help!
It can be good to open up and share a bit with folks on here as you don’t have to ever meet them! PM me anytime you want a chat and post in other threads. Maybe after a while you’ll feel you can meet up with some – that will happen naturally anyway once your daughter starts nursery, etc.
Thank you. I am hoping to move nearer family soon but even then I wouldn’t want to be seeing them every day! My daughter won’t start nursery for another year! I just find that cos I never have anyone to talk to I bottle things up and end up worrying and thinking about stuff all the time
Try mother and baby group. Usually once a week for an hour and free . Run at the church hall. I had no one to go as parents have passed and siblings far. I joined play group when my daughter was 6 months and she’s now 4 years old. Best thing I ever did as everyone is supportive and they arranged trips.
