hi ladies bit of a long one so sorry for that lol but does anyone else feel extremely lonely 😥 im a mum of 2 beautifull children and been with father for 13 years lovely home children thriving good jobs ect but i just feel so lonely all the time, my partner works till 3 so im with the kids or there in school he comes home goes on xbox or goes to bed ect i do tea ect i then go to work come home see to the children put them to bed and thats pretty much it, i dont have any friends really and struggling with my mental health which im also struggling to get help with 😣 making friends has always been a really difficult thing for me, if i take the children out ect its always on my own if i have a child free night its usually spent alone, i could go and do stuff with the very few friends i have but my health issues always get in the way i want too but i find it to hard so always make excuses ect,, i just dont know how im gona cope like this forever, and then i feel bad for feeling like this when im lucky to have what i have which then makes me feel worse. i really do try, everyday you know just getting on with things try keep positve ect but will always end up sat at the kitchen table crying every night,, sorry for the depressing post just feel really down and have nobody to talk to about how i feel anyone else the same or isit just me 😥😥 xx
Hi OP. Has it always been like this or just since lockdown?
its always been like this, my life in lockdown is no diffrent to not in lockdown
2 sides to this OP, yes you need to make some friends but your OH sounds crap- checked out of family life and your relationship (from your brief description).
Yes, I agree your OH needs to help more. That might help improve your mental health. Do you have family close by that can help?
I’m sorry to hear about your health issues. Maybe you can do a hobby which isn’t too physically taxing? Preferably one on a drop-in basis so you can go when you feel well enough and don’t beat yourself up if you can’t. It does take effort and it’s hard to make the first step but you can do it. Social contact is important and if you make a friend from it, well that’s a bonus.
