    hi guys ,

    i have just signed up to gingerbread and do hope it will help, I’m 30 year old single mum who suffers with depression and my daughter is 9 ,i have brought up my daughter for the last 9years all on my own without any support what so ever from the dad since I was pregnant. I don’t have a great support network around me besides my Nan who helps out when she can now and then but lately I have been really finding this hard.. I feel so alone because it’s always just me and my daughter day in day out to the point where I’m feeling really depressed and finding it hard to cope I’m not able to go out because I have no help to just to get time to myself.. when she’s at school I’m working..I’ve lost all my friends because I just don’t have time to socialise and because of the depressant stages I’ve previously been through pushed my friends away I just don’t no how to get out of this cycle and start being happy and finding my own person before I became a mother as that’s all I feel my purpose in life is ..

    Hi Karm

    Sorry to hear you feel that way. 9 years on your own with not a lot of support as you say, that is something you should be very proud of.

    I have a 10month old son, Dad never wants to know so go it alone although I have a brilliant family and I get out everyday to see them and they help so much with my son. I would go crazy otherwise, just moved into a flat few mon5hs ago nothin but issues and hate it so I also feel depressed and know a little where u coming from.

    This forum may be a great start to making friends and meeting up with people. You definitely need you time. I feel already I dont have enough me time and it’s only been 10months

    Hope things start feeling better
