I feel so alone.

Hi there. I'm writing because well pretty much I feel like I'm losing it, im on the verge of a breakdown. I have a 19 month old and a two month old and I am absolutely worn out and I'm struggling to see the bright side in life. I've moved with my fiancé to another state where I know no one, he is from the area so all his family and childhood friends are around however I don't have any friends here of my own so I just feel terribly alone. My fiancé isn't working at the moment because he is trying to support me and I am truly greatful for that but somehow I still feel miserable we are really struggling financially to which doesn't help and I know the lack of sleep is a huge factor. I'm aware of post natal and I definitely am suffering a little of that but I just want to know if anyone else has it good and has a great life but somehow still feel miserable and I'm not talking your average sad day I'm talking about when you almost give up and wouldnt even be bothered if you weren't around. I feel crazy. I just want to feel myself again. This sad I feel is taking away from my quality of life.

Hello Bryong,
I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling sad and helpless. Have you tried some distractions? I feel like some distraction will help get your mind off some of your problems. That has always helped me stay focus and release some stress. Have you tried joining local community groups that interest you, maybe you can volunteer for them? You can also join a reading club (some public libraries offer them). Or maybe try doing some meditation (there are a lot of videos online) and listening to soothing music. And or find other moms on the playground or even at the grocery store. Be brave, strike up a conversation, you'd be amazed how much you all may have in common, besides motherhood. Well, I hope this helps, good luck and keep your stress level down. Always remember nothing stays the same forever, there is always like at the end of the tunnel. Please keep in touch...let me know how you are progressing.
