Post subject: Newbie to the Single Mum Brigade!
I've recently become a single mum. DS is 13months old and is my strength.
Me and OH split up in May due to him playing about (not the first time either!). So I've made the hard decision to go it alone. Too many times I see people staying together for the childs sake but quite frankly for my sake I had to get rid of him. He still sees his son as I will never stop him.
I have found it hard but slowly I am re-gaining my confidence and getting out and about alot more with DS. Obviously friends and family have been amazing throughout the whole thing.... a bit too opinionated at times but I know they're only looking out for me!
Will probably be back at some point looking for assistance and advice.
So far so good and looking to the future with my gorgeous son.
Big hugs to anyone else finding themselve in the single mum zone for whatever reason - it's not easy!
