Hi, am a single mum of one son who turns 17 .
I used to have it all, a boyfriend (the father of my son), a great job, house and a car. He turned out to be aggresive and a footy hooligan, and we lost it all 10 years ago. We survived but i dedicated it all to bringing up my son and getting him a good education etc. Am now in a job i dont really like, all my friends are either single or married and so not available to socialise, and i dont earn that much as only do 16 hours work coz otherwise we wouldnt have the housing etc for the past few years. My son finishes education etc soon so will have to re-enter the big wide world once again and have no idea where to start so as not to lose what little we do have now.
He now has a girlfriend and i am left with nothing................am i jealous, envious or just pure sad? I have no idea how to get back into real life.
Can't quite explain myself and feeling a bit pathetic at this moment, hence am writing this, i do not usually talk openly about my feelings.
