    After 20 years of happy marriage my husband dropped a bombshell on our family life by announcing he no longer loved me and wanted a divorce! I had no idea! I’m now a year down the line and am renting, got myself a full time job and am supporting 3 older children who refuse contact with their father. I’m waiting for a court date as he refuses to split out assets fairly and I’m struggling to survive financially. Life is hard but I want to be happy again so would love to make new friends!

    I hope it all runs smoothly for you! I know I won’t sleep on Sunday night as I’ll have so much whizzing around my head plus I’m now having to do a longer commute and don’t want to be late! My son has to start a new school on Thursday as his father ( a headmaster!) refuses to continue paying his school fees. It’s all been a nightmare and my son’s MH has suffered. We’ve used CAMHS and Kooth online. Any advice to help with his anxiety would be greatly appreciated.

    Bless him, it’s horrible when there are such huge upheavals for kids to deal with.

    Sounds like there’s good support in place for him already, so just keep talking openly & make sure key staff at the new school are aware of how he’s feeling & his MH history so there’s a good buddy in place to help him transition.

    Hi Missy21 – thank you for asking! It’s been an exhausting week but a successful one. My son started on Thursday and after a tearful start he has thrown himself into his new school. I’m so incredibly proud of him and hope he carries on giving every opportunity a chance. He inspired me to attend the PA event tonight ( which I didn’t want to go to!) However I made myself go and am glad I did!

    I hope you’ve had a good week too and your children have all gone happily back to school xx

    Youngest into Year 3, eldest into Year 7. A bit unsettled as ex hasn’t been well so have had to work out school runs & getting to work myself. Luckily survived thanks to a good friend’s help.

    Now dreading a weekend with the girls & no particular plans as everyone’s busy. 😕 Hope you have a good one.

    Same situation but its my wife who dumped me. We just got back from family holiday and she said she does not love me any more and want to have separate life and can not commit to marriage life. She felt that we are not like a marriage couple any more its more like best friends who raising children together.  My Eldest age 9 and the youngest age 5.
