I just don't get it

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

So the beginning of the month I was so hyped up, I decided to take over as co-leader for one of the challenges. I was so ready to work out, eat right, ect. I now feel like a failure. I stopped working out, I stopped doing things I love. I just have been in this depressive mood and its been more than once a month. I know one of the reasons why is that I don't have any friends here to sit and talk to, go out for coffee, ect. I stay at home every day with my 2 year old, my older two are in school, and my husband goes to work. His schedule inflicts with me having anything outside of the house so I stay here, can't walk anywhere due to being so far out in the country and living next to a highway I don't feel safe walking. Sorry for being so Debbie downer I just really haven't been happy lately but this place is the only place where I feel I can just let it out, if I did it on facebook people think I'm looking for sympathy. I don't know what to do anymore.

    I'm afraid I know all too well what you're going through. I just recently moved from an area that left me feeling like I had no choice but to keep to myself and wait until circumstances changed before I could make the most of things. Instead of children I stayed with my in laws, due to our location in the middle of nowhere, without a second vehicle, only one of us (between me and my husband) could work and pretty much leave the house (and we couldn't afford just one of us working), and what people I had around me, they never liked me from the start.

    I saw in a challenge you posted about hoping to make some friends for support and encouragement, I might be in the same boat, but I'm here if you just want to talk over some virtual coffee.

    Hang in there, u can vent here, I agree with jiacolo, there are online resources, but u also need time outside the house, can u get someone to watch your child at leads once a week? Good luck
