I'm 29, still living with my mum who has alcohol issues and can't build a social life | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: EVERYONE at work tomorrow will be talking about all the fun things they did over the weekend but I spent the entire time watching TV – like normal.

I can’t seem to build a social life because no one invites me anywhere.

Listen to the NEW Dear Deidre podcast

Resident agony aunt Sally Land is taking The Sun’s legendary advice column from the page to podcast.

Each week, Sally will be joined by an expert and some of your favourite celebs to give helpful, entertaining advice to listener problems.

A brand new episode will be available every THURSDAY.

Listen HERE, or wherever you get your podcasts.

I see everyone else at work creating friendships but I can’t.

I am a 29-year-old woman and an only child from a ­single-parent family.

Mum and I never really got on as she has an alcohol issue.

We still live under the same roof but have totally separate lives.

We often argue and I’d love to move out but can’t afford to.

I don’t know how to move on.

DEIDRE SAYS: I feel for you but you are not alone in feeling stuck.

Start by picking off the issues one by one.

See if volunteering fits in with your interests – try do-it.org.

You can make friends there who share your values.

If your mum’s problems mean it’s hard to invite them round, organise going out for a pizza.

My support pack Widening Your Social Life has lots of ideas and contacts.
