Hi Ladies.
New to Hertfordshire area and am struggling to make new friends even on the school run. Having Anxiety makes it so hard. I dread doing the school runs, I stand on my own whilst all other mums chat away in there circles. I just want to get out of there. I feel as though every one is looking or talking about it.
I try to smile or just say hi. My child started the school near end of summer term which I understand the other mums have know each other for longer. I just struggle with it so bad it really upsets me .
Is there any other mums going through same thing if so be great to chat.

I too have just moved to Welwyn garden city, 4 months ago. I haven't made any friends yet at my child's school. Some smile but I don't let it bother me. My son started yr 3. So all the mums have formed their groups and friends already.
Maybe invite one of your child's over for a play date or a trip to your local park. One of my sons friend mum did mention during the warm weather some mums go to the park after school for a picnic.
Don't let it get you down. Maybe give it a while for your child to make more friends and that usually helps making friends with their mums.

Hi Op,
Are you feeling better ? I was going through my old 'watching' section and I remembered you smile
Did you manage to make any mum friends?
