Hi,

I'm really relieved and happy I found a support group online! I'm recently a new Mom and I love taking care of my child. Her name is Claire (short for Clairetta) and she was born on August 14th, 2012. My name is Rachael and I'm 22 and currently live in Indiana with my fiance Sebastian and our new baby daughter.

The reason I seeked out a support group for stay at homes is because lately I've been feeling very, very depressed and lonely. I feel like I have nobody to talk who would understand. I really want a friend to talk because I don't have a Mom, my fiance doesn't 100% get it, and I don't have any friends.

This depression is killing me slowly and I don't know what to do. I really hate myself for being depressed.

Sorry to be a downer, but I really need help.


Rachael

Hi Rachael!

Our babies are similar in age, my son, Oliver was born on the 26th of August.

I can completely relate to your situation. I've been without friends prtty much since I announced my pregnancy. Being at home with just the baby is such a blessing, but the days become long when theres no one you feel you can reach out to.

Hi Rachael-

For some, the transition to being home 24/7 is rough. I'm glad you found the site though. You'll meet some great moms here.

I live in Bloomington. Your little boy is so cute! Thank you! Momma world hit me fast because I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was do in 4 months!! At times it is very, very overwhelming. But then are times I enjoy it so much! I feel kind of crazy because of my emotions going up and down! Lol. How are you coping with being a mommy?
