Surely I'm Not The Only One.....

I don't need negativity, I need to hear from people that understand what I'm feeling, take your judgement elsewhere. I'm bored! I'm so bored, and I'm afraid it's going to start effecting my family if I don't figure something out soon. I'm a stay at home mom, and a nursing student, and lately I've been feeling like something is missing. I clean, I cook, I play, and take care of my kids... I do everything I'm supposed to do, and everybody seems to be happy but me. I don't know what I want. I have an awesome husband (even though he does have his moments), and anything else I could ask for, what's my problem? My husband thinks I'm having a quarter life crisis.

You have already said what your problem is: you are bored. unfulfilled. start small and find a hobby.

quarter life crisis?lol idk about that but you're definitely not alone. I get sooooooo bored to. So I try for more social interaction, play groups, story time at different libraries, just trying to do more stuff in things. But I have days sometimes weeks when I feel bored like i should be could be doing something else. I'm not married but I think I need to find  a hobby outside of being a mom something i can do thats appropriate but that I can use as a temporary excape. I suggest you do the same

Lol, yes he thought he was funny when he called it a quarter life crisis. Social interaction with people my owmn age is definitely lacking, it just feels like there isn't any time for it.

I was feeling that way not to long ago, and I started making cloth diapers, and it felt good to make something that was uesful and it was rather fulfilling. Finding something to do thats a little challenging and you can quickly put down helped me a lot.

Staying at home makes anyone crazy. You need a hobby.

I'm an emt with my rescue squad and my county is 100% volunteer for fire and ems. I've been off for the last year, and have my first shift on Saturday.

Reconsider whether nursing and being a stay at home mommy is what you want to do. I kept failing my classes when I was going for nursing and realized it wasn't what I wanted to do. If you can get a job do that, sometimes its nice to be around people who aren't family.

Another thing, pray, sometimes what we're missing his God. Being a Christian is so filling because you know God loves you and you aren't alone.

Oh no I absolutely love going to school.  I make straight A's and could absolutely kick myself for not doing it when I was younger.  Going to school is almost the only opportunity I get to be around people my age (maybe a little younger ;) ).  I'm also going to school to ensure that I could take care of my kids on my own if anything were ever to happen to my husband, so that is an absolute must for me.  I pray all the time, wouldn't have it any other way. :)
