Something’s not right

I am feeling so displaced & so alone
i think IV made the wrong decision
i am so scared that my daughter won't make friends at this new school & the parents won't be inclusive of me & her
was just at a party with the old school friends & I felt so out of place there- I would have anyway-
but it was just like the other parents didn't even bother to come up to me or talk to me cos we have left the school now
they all sat in a group & I was on the other side of the table all by myself
& I didn't go up to them either because I felt so excluded & awkward
like - you're not going to be part of our kids life so not going to bother talking to you-
i hate feeling like this
mthen the mum of my daughters best friend who always asks me to watch her child so she can go off- didn't ask me but asked another mum- the mum of the girl that my child was playing with because her child was actually being mean to her at this party- so it was like she was taking the friend my child had away & giving it to her daughter- by asking her mum to watch her after the party- my child had already asked if she could play with her after the party & I always do things like that but she said no to my child & then went & asked another mum if her kid could play with her-
i was so pissed off- feeling really displaced & completely alone & so is my daughter-
feeling like I'm close to a breakdown
just don't know was to do
at least I know IV done the right thing with her schooling- but this friendship/ loneliness thing is killing us both
- we literally have no one else

That sounds like a really tough day @Serenity1. You mention that you have done the right thing for her schooling, does this new school provide better opportunities for your daughter?

Sounds like it is a positive move @Serenity1, we're sorry to hear about the experience your daughter has had so far. Is she looking forward to starting the new school? It seems that this will be a new start for both of you, which is a great thing. Are you able to volunteer at the new school? This may be a great way to meet other parents.

I expect she will be nervous & am hoping she won't have difficulty making friends & if the same thing happens at this school for no reason- I just don't know what I'll do.
I am word I will affect her positive attitude- because I am so sad, &depressed about leaving good friendships behind that we had built up trust over three years so if I needed help-( even though I was reluctant to ask)- I could with regards to getting my daughter to school or helping others out- now those connections are severed.
I am also struggling with PTSD when my mum took me out of my school & away from my childhood friends I never recovered- I did not make new friends & I went into myself & this was where my isolation & depression & agoraphobia started. I was in high school tho & did not have any family support- my mum did not care & I had NOONE- my daughter knows she has me& I will always be there for her & never stop fighting for what is best for her.

Good Luck with your new start @Serenity1 If she feel comfortable with the change she was obviously not losing much from the old school. Just take your time with it all and have good quality at home time til things open a bit socially.
