So, you've split up, have a child with tantrums, no-one to turn to and you're moving house. No wonder you're feeling like crap. First of all, this is completely NORMAL under the circs - you ARE coping by keeping your head above water (even though it's bluddy hard), but you do need a bit of support which you plainly don't have.

I don't have any easy answers. I just wanted to send my commiserations. I have been been in the same boat (except for the splitting with partner) and it's pretty rubbish. I survived though - sending you best wishes and good luck because that's all I can do.

When you see the HV tell him/her everything. It's their job to offer support and guidance.

ss like people to ask for help. It shows that they are trying to get help for the situation.

It's the hv's job to be there for you and offer guidance and advice. But, she can't read your mind and nobody can help unless you talk to them - be brave and assertive. You might be surprised at how she can help/support you but you have to let her know first.
Best wishes to you.
