Needing a chat
5 March 2020 at 7:54 pm #37472
Does anyone else struggle with not being able to offload/talk to someone else when being single with kids?! I’m sure if I had someone else who came back from work in the evening to chat to I’d be able to hold more in and not be so vocal about how tired/overwhelmed I am to my girls 😔
I feel so guilty that I say I’m so tired or I’ve had enough now or I can’t do everything etc it’s like I just can’t hold it in!!
Its just so constant, I’m a sahm and don’t really have much external support so it just gets too much too often. My girls are generally good so it makes me feel even worse but of course they what my attention a lot 😫
Be lovely to come down stairs after I have put them to bed and be able to chat on here regularly?! Does anyone else feel like that?

Me too. Once son is in bed, 9.15ish I’m normally on line 😊6 March 2020 at 4:17 pm #37498
May sound like a daft idea, and not sure how to do it, but, seems like a few of us are looking for some place to chat, but maybe like a live chat group? Rather than this platform? One that a bit more real time? If anybody knows how or is interested we could find someway?6 March 2020 at 5:44 pm #37500
Hi, feel the same , and bored too, when kids are at school,and family too busy to chat as well,and trying to get a job that fits around the kids and it’s hard.I think gingerbread is great for us to chat , feels like your not on your own .😃6 March 2020 at 6:42 pm #37504
Nights worse for me, work manic, days seem OK nights seem looooooong!7 March 2020 at 6:37 am #37510
Loneliness is s*!t…..
It doesn’t really make a difference if your kids are with you or not.
That said to see kids on a regular basis cannalso be hugely rewarding. Last year my neighbours kids came over loads. We had great fun colouring and playing instruments.
Maybe try arranging play dates with other kids and parents alternatively if you feel overwhelmed but run down it may be a mental health issue which you may need some medication to help you deal with. Dont be scared to ask for help.
Gps have to give you time in a doctors appointment. Write down how your feeling before so you can address any issues within the appointment xx7 March 2020 at 8:14 am #37512
It’s the lonlyness that gets to me and not being a family anymore, just so painful
Maybe more a man thing but loosing wife also seems to include loosing the friends we had, so feel isolated
Having daughter living with me helps but conscious how she is.
Thanks for the message it helps x7 March 2020 at 5:50 pm #37521
I’m new to this but I found it when I realised I don’t socialise at all. I spend all day at work then go home to an empty house. I need adult conversation, someone to chat with. Where do people find other people these days? I’m a single momma to a lovely 7 year old, but apart from wrestling and star wars, he is limited lol… Help me!!7 March 2020 at 6:08 pm #37522
Snap! Amazing how the Internet is suppose to be the place for everything yet when it comes to sensible grownup chat nothing! Well unless your brave. I am new to this as well
I have the luxury of princess drawing, colouring and dressing up, great for a dad with a daughter would kill for star wars

Oh no, princess drawing isn’t for me.. But I’m needing adult conversation! About anything or everything haha!! Being a single mom is hard – but I’m told it should be enough, like hell. I’m sick sitting on a bench in the park alone whilst my son is playing. I don’t have many friends to chat with… Sort of a social recluse!! What do you do?7 March 2020 at 6:50 pm #37526
Unfortunately about the same as you, joined this to see if it would help and it does just not real-time which is a shame, miss just normal conversation and chat.
Watch a bit of TV and chat crap with some about it, you know normal stuff
