Im 46 with a 6.5 year old. I was married to her Dad for 11 years before she was born. She was planned and no fertility was necessary. Very soon after I was pregnant and after she was born it was obvious her father was regretful in our decision to have a child. We nether one have any family to speak of. When DD was almost 4 we separated and divorced. I bought a house less than one mile down the street from him so he could be involved regularly. This has not happened. She'll be 7 in August. I'm physically and emotionally exhausted. I have no family to help her develop those important relationships or bonds. Her Dad does not participate in anything. Holidays, etc. I'm feeling so overwhelmed. She's an extremely emotional girl and I find myself loosing my temper etc which doesnt help at all. I know I probably have it better that many but I feel so worn down and I have so far to go.
