Down and Out

I'm feeling so very depressed and lonely. I have this problem of being lonely when my husband isn't around. He's leaving for a trip for 10 days and it scares me to death. I don't know what to do. I have no hobbies except exercising. I exercise 4 days of the week in the morning. I have no friends. I wish I had some pills to help me relax. Are there any friends out there to talk to.

Sure there are. There's me, and there could be others too. It can be pretty distressing when your main source of company goes away. I'll bet he'll miss you too. Could you use this time to explore some interest you've never had a chance to learn about? Whether it's geneology or crafts or history or poetry or an author you've always wanted to try, not only will you find a good distraction, but you may find company if you join a forum dedicated to it. Just a thought. It would have a much more long lasting effect than a pill.

Good luck to you!

It's funny you mention geneology as my mother is a professional geneologist. I just need to keep busy while hubby is gone. He said I can go on his next trip to Montana with him in September if I can convince my son to take care of the dog. I have knee surgery on August 29th but I should be ok to go with him the 2nd week of September. Like I said I just need to keep myself busy.

I Miss my husband so much. I've got knots in my stomach. I don't know what to say I'm so alone. I exercise every morning for an hour but you can only do so much. My house is spotless. I don't know what to do with myself.

Perhaps if you re read this thread you will see that another poster has suggested many things fo ryou to try so that you're distracted?

The library is a really fun place to go and often you can get books on cd or tape and listen endlessly to this if you don't feel you have the concentration to read a book.
THey also have magazines, reference books, etc.

It would be hard for me to be away from my husband too. The more you stay in your head thinking this tho is going to be harder than trying to take a baby step to do something different.
Just my thoughts
