For the last 5 years of my life I have been a single mother. I have had serious boyfriend off and on, currently off. So I am finding myself alone. Since I was laid off from job in November I am going crazy. Today I did not speak to a single human being. My daughter is off being well 17 as she should be, hanging out with her best friend.

Funny thing about being out of work is that you have all the time now to do the things you want but none of the money. When you are working you have no time but have the money. The thing about being a single mother you pour your heart and soul into your child and then they grow up and your left empty. Sigh. I will figure it out I just haven't yet.

That's great, good for you.  

Sometimes volunteering ends up leading to something better (not to mention how much you'll be able to help someone else in need).

hugsMy daughter is turning 19 in June.  She more or less 'cut the cord' when she was 18.  But, she lives nearby so I do get to see her.  She's my only child.  I've been a single mom for several years now moreso the last year and a half.  Being alone more kind of sucks.  I know the feeling.  Good to see you volunteering to stay busy.  I'm looking into that as well.  If you like to workout join a gym or start walking in nearby parks.  I do that, too.  It's hard being a mom cutting the cord, but we all have to sooner or later.  I do miss my little girl but she is growing up.

My baby just turned 17 last week too, but I started feeling the empty nest syndrome about a year ago because I rarely saw her and had to keep up via text. I enjoyed it to be honest, but I was also married, so I wasn't all alone. Now a year later my whole world changed, Im separated and living with both of my dds and 3 grandsons. Anyway, you will find ways to keep busy - new hobby, time with friends - and will adapt to your new me time.
