It does get easier after a while – I have anxiety too, and self referred to something called “Time to talk”, it’s a local NHS counselling by phone thing and it’s really helped me to take control of my thoughts and overcome those feelings of overwhelm. Sounds like you’re being a great mum to your kids, which is the most important thing, and you’ll always find people to talk to on here!
Hi there, it does get easier… When you are dealing with everything the same time it can feel overwhelming…. Just have to take things one step at a time. This is a good forum and you will find lots of support here.

I too am new to the forum and am a single mum to a 3 year old boy in Birmingham. I do feel the same – it’s overwhelming sometimes and very tiring. I feel pretty anxious too – life has changed a lot in the last 12 months and it feels like one bad thing after another. I am trying to remain hopeful that things get easier with time and that my luck may change! 🤞🏻Some days that’s hard though isn’t it.
Great to have found this website as a source of support x
Hey there 🙂 im a single mummy to 4 boys 15, 11, 10 & 8 i totally get where youre coming from for years ive struggled trying to work care for my hildren in which my 11 year old has special needs and every time i think im getting somewhere and we feel settled so.ething else gets thrown into the mix. I found a good job within the council as an apprentice worked my bum off got a promotion and now im having to give up work as its just got too much to stay at home to care for the boys predominantly my 11 year old as he needs more care and supervision and i feel devestated. I feel like ive lost my identity and pride, my career meant so much to me and obviously the kids come first but i just feel so isolated and unsupported. Big hugs hun xxx
