Lonely SAHM 😢

Anonymous

So, I’ve been trying to connect with other moms in my area but it is harder than I thought 😥 normally I’m not one for a sappy day or tears but it’s been so hard having my husband states away and being home feeling like all I get to see are our kids and the walls of our home 😥. I am at a breaking point most of the time and I don’t think it’s fair to my babies that mommy wants to lay in bed most times but I can’t help but feel depressed and down and LONELY 😞 Adult company and friends are strongly needed

    Awe 😕 I was going to offer companionship, but I’m in Alabama. I am there with you, I just sit at home all day. Especially when my husband takes our only vehicle, it gets very lonely. I am here if you would like someone to talk to, and I really do hope it gets better for you ❤️

    Check out the app ‘Meetup’ that way u can search for other moms in ur area that meetup. I wish I could help more, because I totally understand what you are going through. You can write me at Gordon_jennifermarie@yahoo.com and I’d be more than happy to find a way to video chat with you!

    I'm sort of in the same situation, moved to Sarasota last July and I'm just not very good with that initial process of making connections. Try searching for MOMS club and see if they have a chapter in your area. I was a member before I moved so I joined down here, and they are very active, events scheduled most days and some evenings for family or Mom's night out get togethers.

    I'm sorry, it's tough to stay sane when you only talk to your Littles! I bet there's a MOPS group in your area where the kids will have fun and you can talk to adults :) See if there's a Facebook mom's group for your area too! My local Facebook moms group is always having meet ups at parks and things.

    Been there. For a decade. Go do things that YOU and your kids love. Museum. Library. Pool. Park. Mall. Cafe. Whatever it is, you’ll find likeminded moms and their kids. I have learned to strike up conversations with strangers (not easy for me!) because I find we’re all looking for the same thing: community. Online community is a major step in the right direction. Good job! Talk to your provider. Lying in bed = depression. It is not normal. It can be treated like any other bodily ailment. I know bc I’ve battled it since puberty. Seek support/therapy: whether it’s meds (Prozac is my boyfriend) or a therapist or long phone calls with a bestie/sister/mother/mentor, you need to talk it out. Please take time to love your overworked mind and body: running or writing or reading or long baths or fancy takeout for one and funny or sexy tv (skip the gut wrenching dramas) after kids go to bed or date nights with yourself (lovehoney online catalog is my tinder). You need to be your first friend. It attracts others! 🤩
