    Hi……. I don’t quite know what to write, what to do, what to say

    but my partner who I loved so much and I split January 23rd after a huge physical fight

    I fled with my then 5 month old

    I feel lonely and lost, upset and angry …. he doesn’t fight to keep his family, he asks about our baby once a day if I’m lucky

    I asked him about us and he was like well maybe in a year but you can go meet other people

    I just am so lost ….. he took away my cherished first year with our baby and ruined it

    I know it’s easy to say but your baby should be enough and oh you’ll get through it etc but that makes me feel even more down because I’m like I should be happier because of my baby

    sorry if this is not what this is for (the forum) I’m just so lonely

    I can’t offer you advice but wanted to say hello! Life is so intense right now anyway never mind being on you’re own with a baby and all those feelings that come with it. You’ll be so much stronger for experiencing this, it’s just hard to see that right now. Having someone about who’s heart isn’t in it is not worth it at all. Their loss.  Have a cry when you need and be kind to yourself x

    Hi, I’m in a similar position to you. I’m on my

    own with an 8 month old and fled when she was 2 months old because her dad was so abusive. I’m trying to put my life back together and keep positive but it’s so hard. I feel very lost and sad. He dragged me through court the past few months and now wants nothing to do with us – he withdrew the child contact application as he couldn’t face more court hearings because of the abuse.

    It’s tough but you’re not on your own – I feel like it’s ruined the first year of what should have been a happy time for my baby girl. X
