by an Anonymous lonely stay-at-home mom
I feel very lonely.
I am home all day with my 17 month old daughter.
Most of my friends aren’t married and don’t have kids.
My friends that do have kids work.
I feel like I have no one to talk to about my daily life because they won’t understand. Most of my husband’s friends have kids so they can relate to one another.
My husband’s family treats me like a disease so I am not comfortable talking to any of them. I feel like telling them my feelings would give them something else to look down on me.
I feel like I have totally lost myself since my daughter was born. I love her with all my heart and there is nothing I wouldn’t do to protect her but I need more than this.
I need someone who understands to talk to. I don’t know what to do so that I don’t feel this way anymore.
Am I the only one who feels this way?
