Hello! Makes it easier doesn’t it knowing that you are not alone and your emotional roller coaster is not unique. I’ve met some single parents in real life who are doing amazingly well so there is light at the end of the tunnel. They have all also said that the first year is the worst. I’m almost looking forward to knocking up that anniversary!
Hi, I’m newly separated and a single parent finding the financial and everyday responsibility overwhelming but am also looking forward in a strange way to being the captain of my own ship! I have a crew mate, my wonderful nearly two year old daughter.
I’m only a couple of weeks in and some days are worse than others. Some days I feel like I’m handling and others I feel totally overwhelmed by it all. Hoping it does get easier. Just nice to have some company in the same situation.
Thank you all for replying. Hope you are all ok. I have been after this support for such a long time. I have been split from my son’s dad for just over a year and half now and he’s still giving me hell. So many things id like advice on and up to now ive had no one who understands or can give me the advice i need. Just scared of getting verbal diarrheoa on here as theres so much to talk about lol. My anniversary happens to fall on my favourite day of the year for me… bonfire not. Not surprised he tried to ruin that too ha. But this anniversary I think I’ll just be thankful. I’ve found it hard financially too but any of you need any advice on that I can tell you what I’ve found out over the last year and half x
Hi. I’m new to this too. Been separated about 9 months now and seem to be getting more hell from my ex the longer we’re separated. So nice to know that there’s support out there . Everyone tells you how strong they think you are for going it alone, but they don’t see you sobbing on the kitchen floor after you’ve dropped your kids off and the house is too quiet! 🙈X
