I have worked most my adult life and the past four years while my husband stayed home w our son. Well we decided for my to stay home bc he got an awesome job offer. I was so excited. Then after a few weeks I became so emotional and anxious. Uncontrollable crying and arguing with my husband over nothing. I feel like I'm going crazy.. I just want to know if anyone else has experienced anything similar?

It's a hard adjustment going from working full time to being a SAHM. I suggest you talk to your doctor as you may have a bit of depression.
You also need to get out and find yourself a hobby. I also suggest talking to your husband, let him know how you are feeling instead of arguing with him. You need to make sure you open up the communication between you. That way, if you need to have an hour to yourself, he will understand and give you space and look after the child.
