Thank yall for understanding. I hate being so lonely and I also know my girls need to be around other kids sometimes too. My oldest is going to start preschool 2 days a week in September so I'm hoping that will be good for her and maybe I can meet some people too (though it's doubtful....) I've always been very introverted and have always felt left out of everything. I just don't want my daughters to be left out of everything because of me. I feel a lot of blame and the need to SH but I'm trying my best not to.View Thread
That's how I feel today. I don't complain to family about my lack of sleep but they feel the need to constantly tell me what they think I need to do about it. And it's not told in a helpful/kind way. Today I even got really long message from my mom's friend. I wrote her back letting her know that I don't agree with her. Just leave me alone! And then the opposite of wanting to be left alone, I keep seeing all these pics of some kids we know (my oldest daughter's age) getting together for play dates and I cry because we aren't invited. I have social anxiety and might not end up going but not being invited hurts too. I am lonely. Sleepy and lonely. View Thread
For the record, I am the most super anti-social person but if someone invited me to a cat birthday party, I would absolutely take them up on it! What's wrong with your friends?! This sounds too cute to pass up for sure! I'm so sorry your friends didn't think so and I only wish I lived closer. Want to move back to TX? View Thread
My girls and I will come too. My girls love cats and are very gentle with them so they will love the party. We will also bring our neighbor's cat Sam because he's so sweet and he think he's our cat anyway.
Can you tell your parents, "Look, I'm an adult and sometimes I get busy so I'm not going to call you at a given time anymore but rather I will call when I have a chance" ? Obviously they just act that way out of concern for you but they seem way too overbearing. I'm very sorry and very sorry for your other feelings as well. ((((LLT))))View Thread
CJ, I have thought of getting one because that's exactly what my SIL did with my nephew.... slept in a recliner with him. But, they cost quite a bit and I don't really have room for a recliner.... so.... I dunno. Thank you for the suggestions, I do appreciate your thoughtfulness.View Thread
If it's the moon then the moon has been that way since the day this baby was born because she's never slept.
CJ, thanks for the suggestions. Baby sleeps in a crib in our bedroom. I have tried many times to put her in bed with us (even the night before last) but she doesn't stop screaming so it doesn't seem to help. I know that helps for a lot of babies but not this one. Pretty much the only way for me to get her back to sleep is to rock with her in the rocking chair but I can't sleep in the chair.View Thread
