My Travel Story

by: Sophie Eccles Start Date: Jul 21, 2016 - End Date: Nov 20, 2016
Hi I'm Sophie I moved to England from Scotland a number of years ago to live with my partner. We had a wonderful daughter a year ago but have since broken up. He is not involved anymore because he couldn't cope with my postnatal depression. I don't have any family down here and no longer have any friends because we moved 200 miles for his work just before our child was born. I barely leave the house and feel like my daughter is suffering, I feel like the best thing for us is to move back home to Edinburgh Scotland but unfortunately I'm struggling with finding work due to having nobody to look after my daughter and the cost of childcare is too much to be able to work full time it'd cost me more than I'd earn. There seems to be no end in sight to the misery I'm enduring and I always cringe at people asking for handouts and think they are lazy and should work for it. I'd never envisioned being in a situation where it was my only option. I don't expect any help but I would be eternally grateful to anyone for anything!
