    Hello,

    There are no right or wrong answers. If you go it could mean the start of a good relationship between you and your in laws post separation. If you don’t you are giving yourself opportunity to accept the separation sooner. Two bits of advice I have is try not to put yourself in a situation where someone is not nice to you (my in laws blamed me for the divorce) and remember the first time you do anything as someone newly separated it’s the hardest. It will get easier. X

    Hi sian, I am a single mum of three years and feeling very down at the moment. But it’s winter and I have a bad cold and I’ve been better than this for a lot of the last year so I know it will get better again. I have appointment’s in the new year to see a homeopath, my doctor and a councillor and I read a lot about self help. If you’re thinking about any of the options to improve how you feel then the sooner you ask for help the better for you. A doctor sees someone who is finding life hard everyday and they will absolutely not judge you. Good luck x

    This is such a motivational post, thank you. I often run out of enthusiasm to say sod you all or change someone’s opinion. In a lot of cases I wouldn’t bother anyway because there are some people who love to give advice based on no personal experience or empathy whatsoever. However for the battles I do have to fight a post like yours reminds me that I can do it, and you’ve kept your sense of humour and I definitely miss my own 🙂 I’d also like to say well done to all the single dad’s out there, you face the same challenges every day and some new ones, my male friend who was a stay at home dad was asked ‘oh so you’re retired, you don’t do anything all day?’ to which I asked ‘is that what you think of stay at home mums then?’ apparently it was ok if you’re a woman though. Keep fighting everyone 🙂
