Do you get lonely?

I live far away from family and the few friends I have. I don't work and I don't drive so I spend the bulk of my time alone at home. When my significant other is home the quality of time we spend together is crappy we don't talk much or do much. I spend most of my time just hanging out with the kids. I love them but sometimes I need an adult to talk to. Anyone else get this way

I get lonely and my family is right down the street. Hun if you feel unhappy you need to fix it. It will only lead to worse things. Good luck!

 We all need adult stimulation as well. Can you find a playgroup for the kids where you can chat with moms for a little while when the children play? Maybe take a class or hobby.

Back in the early days of our marriage, we only had one car and I was stuck out in the country with a newborn and no neighbors. I nearly went bonkers! But I understood that it was just a season of my life and wouldn't always be that way. I got through it. I gardened a lot, read a ton of books, and just concentrated on bonding with my baby. Of course, it probably helped that I am an introvert and prefer my own company. If your dh isnt that communicative with you, that's probably a sign that you need to really work at your relationship.

It's hard with me not driving to get out and meet anyone anywhere or go to anyone's house. I am so bad at making friends

I know the feeling. DF is always busy, if he's not working, he is in his office...working. I get very lonely. I don't drive either, and I don't have very many friends. So most of the time the only conversation I have is with the animals... So yeah, I get get lonely...

Why not try to work on your relationship with your hubby? It would make my hubby sad if he knew I was feeling the way you felt

I don't think my dh is capable of feeling sad. Nothing ever seems to bother him

I don't even have a pet. My life seriously consists of cleaning and child raising then bed. I love being a stay at home mom I just wish every now and again I could change things up

We are about to have our third child and I just feel like I'll never have an adult conversation again
