My ex-husband has turned our children against me

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex-husband has turned my children against me because I was in hospital and couldn’t cook for them.

They are adults but have different forms of special needs.

Six months ago my husband left me for another woman but I stayed in the house.

I’m 42 and have become very depressed. At my worst, I couldn’t get out of bed or do anything.

My doctor was great but felt I needed a spell in the hospital.

After I was discharged, I found my husband back in the house with his woman.

The kids now don’t want to know me. He’s fed them a pack of lies, saying I don’t love them.

I’m back living with my mother now. I am heartbroken.

DEIDRE SAYS: I can only imagine how tough it’s been. Write to the children or text or email them and explain you do love them.

Suggest meeting them somewhere if you can, so you can put your side of the story, without criticising their father.

Contact your ex and tell him you have to sort out who stays in the house.
