DH left 2mths ago with no warning. A few of you are already familiar with my story I have a 15mth DS and I'm 25wks pregnant - unplanned, which played a huge part in him leaving.
I'm feeling incredibly lonely still and constantly feel in pain, like a dull ache in my heart all day. I miss having someone to talk to each evening, or the comfort of knowing someone else is in the house, even if conversation was light on in the last few months together. I'm not eating properly because I don't have the energy or motivation to cook just for myself. I miss being able to run to the shops quickly, or have a decent shower. I miss the everyday things you take for granted when you're a couple/family.
If I'm struggling now, I'm very worried about when bub2 arrives in 3mths time. I know I'll somehow cope because I have no choice, but I'm worried I'll never feel 'happy' again. I miss being a family and haven't been single for 20yrs - I've always gone from one relationship to another pretty quickly. No one is going to want to take on a single mum with an 18mth old and newborn! I dread the idea of being single indefinitely. I don't have any single friends in the same state for company either.
How long did it take for you to get past the loneliness? How long before you felt at peace with being a single mum? What are the advantages of not having a partner around (if any)?
