Oh sweetheart, do I know how you feel. Only I was that way AFTER I had the baby, not before. It's so easy to feel like there's nobody out there, and you've been left to hold the baby... literally. Esp if you've got a husband or S.O. working long hours (mine's in retail, and it's Christmas - I never see him). See if there's a local charity group, church group, aspiring baby-sitter club, etc. with someone who could just talk to you while you make yourself a pan of soup. Sometimes (esp after baby) it can take 45 min to make that soup.
