Any other lone parents? As in, single parents where the other parent has zero involvement? I feel so alone.

Does it count if I’m technically still with the dad and even tho he’s in the next room he literally has 0 involvement? He doesn’t help me out at all in fact he quit his job and now all he does is smoke pot and play video games all day long

He sounds like a loser, I’m sorry.

But on the positive side at least your child has a father that I’m guessing does love them, even though he’s a lazy waste of space.

My youngest doesn’t have her dad, he was murdered a month before she was born and she just turned two last week. My oldest does see his father but he doesn’t like going to see him or his step mom. So I guess I kind of relate.

Murdered? Geez that’s awful I’m sorry.

My child’s father paid me for sex so he has never been involved at all but he is alive - just there is no contact between us obviously. I just tell people it was a one night stand obviously because I don’t want people to know.

It just breaks my heart that she’ll never know her father.

Single mother here too. My boy is 4yrs old and sees his father once every few months. He lives in a different town. When I was pregnant he decided to end it with me, and said "its not because you're fat, ugly and pregnant...." Which of course was SUPER triggering and and a complete asshole thing to say.

Me. 2 year old and 8 week old. Found out I was pregnant just after I split up with their dad. He got with a woman who’s daughter was taken into care because of a peadophile. She still had the peadophile living with her after her daughter was taken. I stopped contact and now going through courts to fight for the safety of my children. 🤦🏼‍♀️ So glad I’m breastfeeding or I would have been back to ED by now.

Yes, I have 3 girls. Tried to work it out with the father until he physically abused me at the beginning of this year (before I knew I was pregnant with baby #3). It's hard, but he wasn't much help anyway even when we lived together.

Just left an abusive marriage of 20 years. 3 kids. Really struggling with ED and basically everything right now. From the outside world it looks like I have it together but I am really falling apart.

Hi me too!

I have a boy (8) who’s father was never in his life, he never meant him. I left him when I was 3 months pregnant because he started using drugs again.

He ended up getting clean and had 10 months clean and he was about to meet his son for the first time. He ended up using one more time and overdosed and passed away this last year.

My daughters (4) father is a good guy. He is a part of her life and helps a lot. We have tried to make it work but it just doesn’t. I feel like we are just better parents than lovers. Plus he has a drinking problem. But he really is straight and narrow when he has her and she loves her daddy.

Me! I left my sons biological sperm donor when I was 3 months pregnant. He’s never even met him. (He ended up talking about some really messed up stuff- I think he purposely scared me away so he wouldn’t have to help out with child support or anything.)
And then my late partner (he was such a great dad to my son) passed away a year ago when my son was 3 months. I’ve never felt more alone (as far as adult relationships go- I don’t even have friends) in my life.

I feel ya with the feeling alone when it comes to adult relationships... I lost my "friends" when my ex and i split cause he caused drama.

I’m basically a lone parent. My partner works internationally with work and only been home for 10 days (broken into short times at home) since xmas. I normally handle it no bother and just get on with life as he has always worked away but feeling very low and lonely tonight. On the outside i look like a women who has it all but on the inside I’m torn between my three children (4th due in May) plus my own career, trying to buy a house, trying to ignore that I’m a fat whale and only going to get bigger and deal with life with a smile when all I want to do is walk away from everything and everyone because how I’m feeling tonight..... they will be better without me
