I'm really sorry sad

How old is your DD ? Do you drive/have access to a car?

Can your parents care for DD at weekends?

And you do have a life, you have a life that is now so much better because you had the courage to flee an abusive relationship.

It's a very big step towards a new beginning

Hi I'm so sorry to hear how down you are, have you tried to get to know local people, suggested play dates etc? If you intend to stay where you are (is that a decision you have definitely made or would just one more move very close to your parents be a consideration) then you need a plan of action to get to know people locally. What have you done already? We may have some more ideas.

What's happening in your nearest town?
Why not post on Gumtree for people to meet up for some activity - walking, a sport, perhaps supper in a pub once a month?
Is there an evening class you could do in your locality or something more active that might attract people in your age/lifestyle bracket?
Could you volunteer in your area in some capacity?
Is there public transport that would enable you to get from A to B to do any of these things?

You seem very overwhelmed with everything, completely undstandable.

I think you should get a big piece of paper and break down all of your issues into chunks.

For example:

DD - daytime care, nighttime care, weekend care
Home - pros and cons for staying, pros and cons for moving
Job - what do you like? What can you do differently? Can you re-train part time?
Social life - evening classes? Job in cafe/shop/library/playgroup/old people's home whilst your daughter is at school? Try for two months? Any neighbours with little ones that you can invite for coffee? Any old grannies that you can invite for coffee?
Future - ambitions? Dreams? Have some goals, things to focus on. Write them down, however far fetched.

Have you thought about having a chat with your doctor? Just say everything you have written here, it could lead to some support.
