Hi. I am a single mum with 2 kids. I have raised my kids by myself for the last 10 years, since their father went back to our country and we never saw him again.
My kids are 16 and 15, lovely kids. We love going to the beach with the dog, joking and spending quality time together.
I work a lot, but I try to share time with my friends and exercise to keep stress down.
I am in this forum because I have been having hard time with my kids. One suffers depression and anxiety, already in treatment, and I just discovered that the youngest one has been self-harming and drinking secretly.
At least, they trust me and this is out now. And we will go through this. However, I feel mentally drained and physically exhausted. So I joined this group to learn from others and understand that I am not the only one going through hard times with my kids.
I love the weekends since I can spend more time with my kids and my friends.
