I have had a few very turbulent years, serious illness, marriage breakup, daughter diagnosed with ASD and becoming a school refuser. 2 weeks ago I broke and dislocated my ankle. Spent 2 weeks in hospital, need to spend 4 more weeks not weight-bearing, not allowed to climb stairs etc as have metal work which is external and internal holding everything in place, so basically spending all my time in 1 room. I was discharged from hospital today and had not been home long when I got a text message from the guy I have been in a relationship with for the past 6 months dumping me. I feel crap and need a handhold. Please be kind, my mental health is very fragile atm.

So sorry to hear that. That's a lot of stuff that you've been through and are going through. Is there anything at all (no matter how small) you can do to take care of yourself?

Wow, he really knows how to put the boot in. I'd argue having him out your life is at least an improvement in the longer term even it feels rough now.

The rest of it is obviously pretty rubbish and I'm sorry to hear it happened to you. Here's to a significant improvement in the very near future ๐Ÿ’

It may sound trite, and apologies if it comes across that way, but I always try and find a positive in everything.

So you've been through the mill. But you got through all of that. That's no small thing, so you're a strong person. Your daughter got a diagnosis which is better than struggling on without this. You broke your ankle but it's being treated and every day will be healing and getting better.

You split with your husband and now your current partner has shown who they are. That's ok, you've coped with worse and made it through. Better than relying on them and then letting you down.

Things are crap right now, but won't be forever. Be kind to yourself (bork, so cheesy!) try and find a tiny positive in everything and know things can and will get better.

I hope tomorrow is a better day xxx
