    Default Feeling lonely

    I feel so lonely I just want to cry. I wish I went to a mothers group when DS was born. I have absolutely nobody to talk to. Nobody to just meet at the park or go out to lunch with. I'm so desperate to talk to somebody, to spend time with somebody but there's nobody. I know I should join a play group but it makes me so anxious! I'm already feeling down and teary. I don't want to go there and feel like a complete outsider.

    Where do you live? I am sure there are lots of bub hubbers in your area if you ever need to talk pm me. I know what it's like to be lonely. I tend to try and make friends only for them to move away !

    I could have written your post myself! I've also though about joining a playgroup but I don't want to be the outsider. I can already picture me sitting there by myself while everybody else chats among themselves.

    Sorry for the lack of advice but just wanted to let you know that you are not alone! X

    I live in the Southern suburbs of Sydney.
    I hate it. I hate feeling this way. It feels like I'm drowning in loneliness. It's such a beautiful day outside and I just don't feel like going somewhere alone.

    It's nice to know I'm not alone. Nobody tells you that motherhood can be such a lonely job.

    I'm at the foot of the blue mountains otherwise I'd be your friend IRL motherhood can be very lonely, even though you're surrounded by little people 24/7!

    Are you a member of a bubhub due in group or one that's migrated to facebook? If not look into it.

    I'm in 3 facebook groups for my babies due months, and those ladies are my only friends. I'd be lost without them. Ok we don't see eachother all that often, but we talk all day every day so it's not so lonely, even though it's not in person (we do meet up in person sometimes too)

    How old is your DS?

    I'm part of a post natal depression group on Facebook with some hubbers. I love those ladies and they're my rock but we all live in different states so we don't get to see each other much.

    What a joke. I wish it lead to friendship!
