I had my baby four months ago and we love, love, love her! I can't imagine my life without her. These past four months have been very stressful and trying-you know, the newborn stage, she had issues with being a preemie, breastfeeding woes, acid reflux, stranger anxiety...gosh these first months are hard, aren't they? My friends said they "wanted to give us some space" because they knew how tired we were. I didn't call because I was exhausted but would have loved company, a text, phone call, or email. I didn't reach out, but neither did they. Now that I am starting to make it back to work and things, I am not included even when I ask about things. One person in particular didn't even call the whole four months I was not working! She also was not very supportive during my pregnancy either. I felt really hurt by that and feel like just not making an effort anymore. I was just feelin blue about it, kind of mourning my relationships that were. Is anyone else feeling disconnected?
