    I like to come on here. Am also lucky I see my mum weekly and chat to her too. There is a part of me that I keep inside and don't want to share with anyone. Sadly I have been turning to food lately when stressed.

    It depends on the problem really. Sometimes I got straight to DH but if I feel like I need to vent or bounce thoughts off someone I'll confide in a trusted person from my local mums group, or my sister, or a friend or someone from work. Sometimes support can come from the most unexpected of places and I've learnt that generally most people will try and listen if you give them a chance. Once I found myself sobbing in a colleagues office over the fact my DD wasn't sleeping well and I was struggling with returning to work while she was so young. I have quite a few good mates at work but this person I hardly knew and she is waaay older than me and tbh I always thought she was a bit stuck up. But it turned out she had experience working in mental health and just sat and listened to me while I cried and cried. You just never know until you open up a bit, sometimes your gut will guide you to someone who can lend you a non judgmental shoulder to cry on.

    I used to talk to my hubby about everything, but he is such an optimistic person and totally doesn't understand my point of view and find it off that I feel depressed at times.
    Although he can see everything I am going through but I feel he doesn't actually understand how I feel.
    I really miss talking to my girls friends for hours every night. Some of my friends and I have been friends for 17 years. But I find it hard now talking to them about anything too deep. We hardly even catch up anymore, I am the only one with kids.

    My 2 bffs happily go over the same crap with me for hours on end. I probably should have married one of them. DH used to be my other bff but not anymore😢

    My sister. We talk most days for a hour or more. It not uncommon to talk for 2 or 3 hours in the morning and another 1 hour at night. She lives 5 hours drive away so we don't see each other often.

    Yep. Same here. I'd be lost without him.

    Depends. I talk to my hubby about almost everything but if I need to vent and hubby won't "get" it, I go to my BFF. She either gives me sympathy or distracts me until I'm happy again. If I know I need someone to talk some sense into me or put things into perspective, I talk to my parents. If I just want someone I listen, I talk to my oldest sister. I just realised I'm lucky to have a varied support network.
