I love being a sahm, don't get me wrong, but I feel like I've completely lost my identity. I don't have any friends in real life. It's kind of depressing. I hang out with people on occasion, but I'm just so socially awkward from where I don't hang out with or interact with adults anymore I can't keep friends. Is anyone else like this? I have two kids. I love being a mom, I really do. I'm just going crazy lol.

I felt like that for awhile. Then got tired of it and really put myself out there to make mommy friends. Now we have many playdates throughout the week

I know exactly how you feel. I have 2 kids too and I don't even feel like a wife right now cause my husband is overseas. I love my kids but the only.adult conversation I get is from my mother in law when she's not working and I need a translator for my 2 year old.

 I was there a few months ago. But I joined the YMCA and started working out. Plus I got DS involved in more activities so we have more structured reasons to get out of the house.

Yup. I was just telling my dh this yesterday. I'm so lonely. The only people I hang out with, have kids also and that's all we talk about. But I dont know what else to talk about. Socially awkward indeed.
