    Cut a long story short, my husband left 7 months ago, we have an 18 month old baby. I’ve struggled to come to terms with the fact that I won’t have a typical biological family unit, sharing our baby etc. I’ve dated a bit and finally managed to meet someone I quite like and started to come to terms with the separation etc. But then this guy tells me that he can’t have any more children and I feel completely mixed up and an emotional wreck. I’ve said all along that I’m open minded whether I have any more children. But the fact that that choice would be removed from me has hit me massively hard. I feel I’ve had to try and accept a situation that I never wanted (separated family) and now I would have to accept this on top if I decided to see how it develops. I’m, not sure I could handle it, I’m so confused and don’t know what to do x

    That’s a lot to deal with in a short space of time.

    In your shoes I would seek counselling to talk through it all. There’s no immediate rush to decide what you are going to do, so take the time to truly understand what you want from your life before jumping into a decision.

    A counsellor will help you look at the whole picture, and allow you to be honest and open about all your thoughts and feelings.

    At the moment it feels overwhelming, but that will calm down as you’re still, I would say, in shock.
