I know it might be a 'yeah, of course!' kind of question, but I am really over waking up feeling exhausted, dragging myself through the day, getting ratty with my 4 year old at night time especially when she won't sleep...I feel heavy, like I have no life left in me. I struggle to get things done. It limits what I do with my daughter (Maya) - outings etc. I feel like bawling and like I need someone to prop me up!
There are a few factors - I have a mental health issue and take medication and I'm from the UK with no family here, and not many friends/support, but I can't believe I'm the only one in that situation and from what I hear, plenty of single parents are, and manage ok, although I wonder if that contributes.
I only know one other single mum and she's recently separated. I feel largely mis understood by friends and acquaintances who JUST DON'T GET IT (I am sick of being told 'I feel like a single Mum' cos hubby works long hours etc.
I don't MIND being a single parent, but I DO mind feeling like noone understands, there's noone around who 'gets it' and this Godawful feeling that all the life has been sucked out of me.
Thank you for your replies... any reply will feel like a hand reaching out.
