Hi everyone. My partner of 12 years left me a month ago and although it was a shock, we had grown apart so I understood why. I have been fine since then but the past couple of days, I am finding everyone and everything is irratating me. Feel letdown by certain friends who havnt bothered getting in touch, The kids are acting up constantly,understandable I Know but try as I might, I havnt got the patience of a saint. All ex partners stuff is stillhere,getting on my nerves. Hes taking it next wk,didnt want to do it in front of kids. Dnt feel down exabtly,just really irritable and stressed. Even typing this out is making me cross,doing it on my iphnne and keep making mistakes!

You're going to hit a downswing after all that anxiety and upheaval. Cut yourself some slack.

Dope the kids with Calpol, get yourself some wine & chocolate, watch a film. Can you get a friend round at the weekend, just for some company and a chat?

If it gets really bad, ring the Samaritans and dump on them. They're good listeners, and you don't have to be a head-case to call them wink

YOU ARE ALLOWED to feel like shit! Take care now. x

There must be someone you can talk to in rl. You're dealing with it really well but you need to offload and give yourself a break.
