    I’m desperately unhappy. Due to break up I’m living with an elderly relative and helping her out a bit.
    desperate to set up a bubble with a family member for some same generation  support really. I love my gran but find it so isolating.

    some reports state in my situation I can’t form a bubble but other say a single adult household or a a single parent with kids. I am a single parent with a kid who also lives with their gran. Anyone else in this situation?

    I’m in a situation as a single parent I’m in a bubble with my parents – one of which is vulnerable.  I’m glad I see my parents as they offer support but it means I can’t see or do anything else (like I am the high-risk person) it is ridiculously hard. I miss living so much although my little boy is only 18 months we did an awful lot before lockdown and I miss it.  I fight depression off every day for my son, sometimes I’m low and I keep picking myself back up but I’m struggling.

    Just wanted to let you know your not the only 1 in this position as a lot of the time I feel like I am.

    If you need to chat please feel free to message.
