Who do you talk to when you are stressed?
I am so stressed. I feel the whole family's financial responsibility is dependent on me, all the bills are getting on top of the whole family and I am just swamped with millions of things I have to do and just have no time to do anything plus the lack of time to spend with the kids and the guilt building up because of it.
I find myself have no one to talk to.
My parents lives in NZ and we never talk about my feelings for as long as I remember.
My friends are an hour drive away and we hardly see eachother anymore.
I don't want to talk to my husband about things anymore because he just doesn't get it.
To be honest I am not sure if I want to talk to anyone I know. I somehow feel ashamed and too much pride in me.
Who do you talk to to get things off your chest or seek opinions?

These forums, and Facebook groups are wonderful for that.
It can be so hard to find someone to talk to in these situations. Most of the time, I don't want to talk to the people directly involved. I have a wonderful friend at work I chat to also.
It's good to vent.

I come here. There are occasions where I talk to some school mums I know quite well, or my sister for some things. Generally speaking though it's here.

I come here. I feel like I can be more honest on an anonymous forum

yep - my bubhub chickies. always.
God knows my friends here have saved me from screaming and shouting so many times.
I swear it has saved my marriage in lots of ways, as it saves DH from having to deal with some of my anxiety - and some of my venting

I talk to hubby a fair bit but honestly mostly I speak to the ladies in my fb dig group. So all hubbers I have known for 3yrs. It's amazing the support an when you are busy with life catching up with ppl irl is so hard. I would be lost without them all.

The only person I talk to about absolutely anything that is stressing me out is DH. He is the only person in the world who knows all that I am going through.
