To not want to be in anyone's company?

Since having DD I barely have time to myself, so when I do have free time I want to spend it alone, not bother making small talk with others. Unless DP is home then I would rather spend time with him as we don't get time together either.

But that means I'm not spending as much time with other members of family, and the worst part is I don't have the energy to give a shit, I don't like socialising with people I don't particularly like. I know I should make the effort, but I want my downtime. Am I just BU or is this a common thing? I'm exhausted between caring for baby and working

YANBU. I don't understand how other people, particularly MNers do it - lots of people seem to have a very active social life, and meet up with other people at the weekend. I just want to spend time with my own little family. I physically cannot cope with anymore than one event every weekend.

Yanbu!! My dd2 is 3 months and I'm spending today on the sofa alone while my DM takes the DC's out for the day. Too exhausted to bother with anyone else right now.

It's so draining.

Name I've only got the one kid so can't imagine how it would be with more than one shock

I've definately become a lot more reclusive since having children. I don't care either, I enjoy my own company and have never been one of these people who can't do things like go clothes shopping on their own anyway grin
My dc are 3 & 7
