Hi Ive just joined Gransnet.
I've been searching for a long time for support to help me cope with estrangement from my DD and DG/D. It has been nearly 2 years since I saw them last. The 2 years prior to that I saw them only half a dozen times.
For the first 2 years of my DG/D's birth I was very much involved and was so happy. I don't really know why this has happened. There was no big argument between us. I have racked my brain trying to understand why. I tried my best for my children and have always been there for them.
I have tried to keep in touch with letters, cards, but to no avail and was told not to send any more.
I am heartbroken. I don't have any other GC and not likely to have any.
I did read a post where somebody said estrangement was a living bereavement, and for me it is. I had 2 years of private counselling which helped a little. Estrangement from my DD and DG/D feels very lonely as I don't know anyone else who has gone through, or is going through this.
Sorry to go on but it is a relief to find a UK site with a forum on the subject of Estrangement, where hopefully I can find other people who are in the same situation.
Thanks for listening.
