    And here come those feelings of hopelessness about life again.
    The best cuddles in the world are from my child but sometimes you just want to feel loved and wanted and held by a partner. Feel like ill never have that.

    Don't be disheartened Tara!

    You have come a long way and been focused on your addictions.

    Enjoy the time and love with your child... they grow so quickly .. its not that far away till your getting cuddles from your grandchildren! haha !

    When the times right some-one will come along!

    Sending virtual hugs Tara keep fighting for you.

    You should be so proud of what you are achieving. I think you are healing yourself from the inside out. The more you love you the more it shows on the outside.
    Then the possibility of something new growing becomes reality. Keep believing in you Tara xx

    Thanks my lovely people.
    You just have those up and down days. Actually had a lot more down than up days lately and so bloody hard to shake. So hard forgetting all the damage Ive done by gambling.
    And just sometimes you wish you had that special someone to give you a big hug.

    I am truly grateful for all the support I have recieved on this forum from you all, had it not been for this support I don't think I would have made it this far. Thank you and Im feeling super positive about life again!
    Let's do this!!!
