So I've been divorced for 3 years. Living with a partner for 2 years who recently decided they were not happy anymore. My engine blew on my car last month. I have no finances or high enough income for a new or used one. I'm feeling more isolated than I did in my marriage . I am so alone.... Anyone else feel the same???

Sometimes feeling a lone is a good thing...I like to reflect when I feel like that.

Take it as a new beginning! Sit down with a coffee/tea and write away about what you want in the future and work towards it as of the next day.

It's a great new start! Don't dwell on yesterday.

I live in Charlotte, NC. And that is exactly what I need to get out and have some friends. My engine went on my car last month and I dont have the finances to get another, have tried EVERYTHING! ugh. Working part time, been looking for full time work forever. So hard. And no child support for 2 kids. Thanks I may email you.

Hi Jenn,
I know somewhat how you feel. I'm a single mom but have a boyfriend who my son has been getting really close to. Unfortunately he has cancer and we don't know how long he has (maybe a year). He doesn't live with me but now more than ever I feel the emptiness and sadness of not having a father figure in my son's life and struggle on where I should draw the boundaries. Some days it's overwhelming, and it's hard to even be present with my son when all I want to do is stay in bed and cry, especially when other things pile on top. So not entirely the same situation but I have those days of the same feelings! If you don't mind my asking, whereabouts do you live? Either way, one thing that helps me is getting outside or try to connect with at least one person. Feel free to email me, k_areese@hotmail.com. It's hard to see it now but it will get easier...still a little lonely but easier :)

Thank you but I wish it was that easy, lol. I'm trying so hard to move on, especially for my boys.
