    Greetings :)

    Hello from Leicester!

    I am quite good at handling my mental health in general, but I am struggling with self esteem lately since gaining some weight and am anxious due to being stretched a bit thin since becoming a single parent. I just feel really unlovable. I like myself as a person I just do not really feel like anyone else will ever do so as well. I am not even sure if thats a bad thing. I am pretty happy alone but it seems like having more people in my life would be a good thing.

    I do not have a lot of time for myself, due to life commitments and circumstances at the moment, so I am not sure where to start. I plan to lose the weight but it feels like a bad idea to focus on how I look more than how I feel. I am working on making friends and have been building my confidence in this area this year by going to a common interest club in my area. I have not made friends as such but I really enjoy it and get along with the people there well, I guess with time maybe it will turn into friendships, I am in no rush!

    I do not feel attractive and really struggle with my self esteem and feelings of (ADHD)overwhelm can make things hard too.

    But hey, it felt good to write all of that!

    Nice to meet you all

    Welcome!

    I can empathize with pretty much everything you've written, but it sounds like you are on the right track with things!
