When I was a SAHM I definitely wasn't lonely. Mind you I wasn't sitting around the house day in day out, I was out walking, having coffee with other mums, school pick up and drop offs and play group. I was however not mentally stimulated hence why I went back to work. Looking forward to having 12 months off again soon though.

I want to go back to work at least part time but I cant, until at least next year when DS2 starts pre-prep. That adds to it I think, I tend to isolate myself a lot because of my anxiety issues. One you isolate yourself its really hard to pull myself out of it. DH jokes about me becoming a shut in one day because I withdraw so much.

I never used to, but now I don't have the motivation to leave the house so it's definitely lonely.

I get very bored, lonely and frustrated.. I like being around people ( that are over 4!!) during the day.. Love playgroup days but have become a bit socially awkward over the years thanks to a dumb ex, so it is kinda hard to meet ppl..
My kids are great company but not very responsive when I start moaning about the lack of parking at my kids school, never ending washing or want to chat about the hunky parcel man that comes by!
I have made some great friends, but Miss4 doesn't cope well with many ppl..

Yes I do.. a lot..Been sahm for almost 7 years now, I don't like my chances of going back to work as DH travels a lot and I need to be at home as we don't have family here...I meet up with some mums every Friday, I don't always go but they always have this Friday get together so it's kind of nice to have that access to socialize.
