    Hello @Pixiesparent and welcome to the community.

    ​Sorry to hear about how you feel, and that you're struggling to cope. Do you have any kind of support in place for daily tasks and mobility to help you and your children better manage? I'm sure that your children don't feel any kind of negativity about the situation at all, and will understand your difficulties and support you as best as they can.


    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m hopeful that you’ll find it to be a positive outlet. Feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 I have included below a few of the pages I’d recommend having a look through to get used to things:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.

    Do you know, growing up the thing I wanted most was my parent's time and attention. Them speaking to me and having a clue what was going on in my life would have meant more than anything else. I felt that way then and I still feel that way now. 
    Being present isn't about doing things, it's about them knowing you care and having time to hear them talk and hear them, really hear them, and love them and let them know they're supported. 
    You sound like you adore your girls @Pixiesparent so don't beat yourself up like that. What kids want most of all is love <3
