I havent been on here a while. but i thought id reach out to any other moms on here for some advice. Im a 30 year old SAHM in Vegas. I have 2 wonderful kids and a husband that i know loves me very much. Ive felt so very alone tho for such a long time. I have high anxiety so i cant drive anywhere. Ive been trying different methods to fix that, its gotten a little better but not enough to put me behind the wheel. I have almost 0 friends. I have no outside family other than my in laws who dont help much. i can never get out of the house as far as having any me time because no one will babysit for me. and even if i get the chance.. i have no where and no one to hang with. my husband works A LOT and never really wants to do anything. when i try to express my sadness over this situation he gets mad at me and just walks away :( i feel like no one understands and i have no one to talk to. i hate feeling like this. I want to be a happy mom all the time for my kids but i can only be strong for so long until i break. sigh..

Hey Patti. Have you considered counselling? If you have not, I suggest that you go for counselling to be able to face your fears, that your joy and vigour for life may be restored. Remember that you must first appreciate yourself before you can expect others to appreciate you. So start the journey of self discovery, that you may be content with who you are. That way you'll be able attract people (potential friends). A sad, confused, angry, etc. person is not attractive but a lively, joyous, happy, energetic, etc. person is attractive and people can easily start a coversation, connect or relate with that person. The key to all this is to feel good about yourself first then you'll be able to project positive emotions, then you'll be able to attract potential friends. Love you girl, looking forward to you overcoming this challenge (yes you can and you will).
