Hello all! My first thread!
My story is long and complicated, but in the end it seems like I am not handling an emotionally trying time NEARLY as well as I normally would. It is pretty serious - my fiance and I are long distance (forced due to both of our jobs), overseas, and lonely. We were both extremely happy about the pregnancy (semi-planned, we decided to go off the pill several months ago and let what happens happen), until Wednesday when he went into a depressive cycle and hasn't been able to connect emotionally at all. Of course it is natural for me to feel super sad, scared and lonely, but I have been a WRECK. I break down in tears at work, cry uncontrollably (and loudly) at home, and haven't slept well since. Because I just hit 8 weeks and have had a previous miscarriage, I am NOT telling people until our 12-13 week scan, so I do not have a large support network. Are these pregnancy hormones at their finest making me feel insane? Normally I might get down, but crying and being depressed isn't how I normally handle things.
