I’ve messaged you but just think that your Number 1 should be YOU! Especially if you haven’t got any other support!3 June 2021 at 11:39 pm #54882
Really sorry to hear you feel lonely but even more sorry to hear you feel ashamed 🙁3 June 2021 at 11:38 pm #54881
I second what everyone here said! Do not waste invaluable time and energy checking out what he posts and – even worse!- what other people post on his page!!
Enjoy the times where your ex is “nice” to you (it’s better not to be at war!) but don’t take it as a sign that he’s changed his mind. Even if he had, would you want him back after all that ?
Take care and unfriend him 🙂3 June 2021 at 11:26 pm #54880

I have messaged you.
Take care!3 June 2021 at 11:22 pm #54878
Really sorry to hear about your dilemma.
Just to say that you should not just keep the baby just in case he comes back. You should do it for YOU!
I have messaged you.
All the best3 June 2021 at 11:05 pm #54875
Pleased to meet you!
Why would you be possibly bothering me! 🙂2 June 2021 at 5:31 pm #54819
I’m sorry this came as a shock to you.
The process itself is not really hard, unless one of the partners doesn’t want it, in which case it can difficult, expensive and long.
A very good guide is from Advice Now.
All the very best to you and your children

Hello and happy to connect.25 November 2020 at 10:21 pm #46256
That’s what I was saying too, that daughter needs to self-isolate (i.e. stay at home) but son needs to go to school (i.e. leave the house) and dad needs to figure out what to do. Trying to minimise the damage by having daughter stay in the car, as no symptoms today doesn’t necessarily mean no Covid nor no symptoms tomorrow.25 November 2020 at 9:32 pm #46252
The fact that your name is not on the mortgage means nothing. You are still entitled to 50% of the home and you can probably also keep living there with your 2 kids, at least until the 12-year-old is 16, if not longer. So don’t hurry to rent somewhere. Unless your partner is abusive / violent, in which case you need to get out as fast as possible, but then you will be able to stay at a refuge for free I believe.25 November 2020 at 9:29 pm #46251
The lack of symptoms means nothing unfortunately. She could still be a carrier and infect someone at school. Could she stay in the car while you drop your son off?24 November 2020 at 3:25 pm #46195
I second what the others have written above. Be kind to yourself! You are doing the job of 2 people and your child needs you happy.
Definitely reach out to more people. The more you do it, the less lonely you will feel. And loneliness doesn’t have anything to do with whether you are single or not. There’s nothing worse than feeling lonely in a relationship with the person in the same room as you!
It’s hard and it does feel like the hard times will never end, but everything changes constantly and tomorrow, next week, next month can be way better.
I second looking at online courses in something that interests you (Coursera has got courses even on the Science of being happy 🙂 let alone Meditation). And look at nature as much as you can. It always brings perspective to things.
Also if you force yourself to smile, you will soon find yourself smiling for real 🙂
Take care!24 November 2020 at 3:12 pm #46188
It’s crazy isn’t it! Our school had this equally crazy rule that said that if a parent had to self-isolate, the kid still needed to come into school. So I asked how would I bring my son to school if I’m self-isolating? The answer was “I know, it doesn’t make sense! Just wear a mask”. Not exactly the same in your case, but yes what else can you do?! Could you leave her with your ex for the whole of her self-isolation period? Or can you just call them if they are not answering emails.24 November 2020 at 3:06 pm #46186
I’ve messaged you but just to say that it cannot possibly be your last chance to have a baby at 31! You are a spring chicken!! 😀
