OP I know exactly how you feel, you most definitely are not alone. You and other posters are right; the simple things like a walk or a bubble bath really help...I walk really fast in the woods carrying DD when I feel like that to get my adrenaline pumping and burn off any negative energy/anxiety, works for me! Do you have a particular friend/family member you can have a good rant to when you feel like it? It's not always the person you would expect that actually turns out to be the most helpful. In my case it's my old Dad
So sorry to hijack, but ATouchOfStuffing - my poor DD has had the pox over Christmas too! horrid isn't it. We're just coming out the other side. Hope your little one feels much better soon.
I don't drive yet, so get what you mean about feeling stuck. Had no adult contact for 3 days as we have chicken pox here so just texting and calling people and have a very itchy clingy little DD, poor sausage Best thing to do is make plans to catch up with friends when you can. Have something to look forward to each week and surround yourself with people who inspire you or make you laugh (or both!).
I think we have all been there on a regular basis! I know I have days when I feel very alone and Christmas is always a difficult time. A walk is a very good idea and then try to plan something nice to look forward to, even if its only a hot bubble bath.
