Hi Richard, you’re definitely not alone in how you are feeling. I am feeling exactly the same, very lonely and isolated and find it so difficult to meet people in the flesh who are in a similar position as me. Somehow, online seems to be the only way I get to meet other single parents, bizarrely!
Woke up this morning with that sinking feeling, again which is becoming more frequent. Its a mixture of dread, exhaustion, thinking about all the effort that has to be put in just to get through another day. That sounds really bad as I love my son to the ends of the earth and feel blessed every morning that we are here to share another day, but it’s so hard being a single parent. Nothing can prepare you for how tough it is.
My little boy is 2 and I have very little support, in fact none immediately to hand. I stared my new job last week, part-time which is a positive step but has generated a whole heap of other stress! I feel like all I do is worry, fret and complain. I do my own head in so sorry for going off on one lol!
How long have you been a single dad, Richard and have you always experienced loneliness?
