for me so they avoid me. I would love some thoughts from others, I am just feeling sad, cornered and I'm beginning to think I'm going crazy.

You're definitley not going crazy! Unfortunately it goes with the territory...it's hard not to feel a bit jealous when you see other friends sharing 50/50 and having the best of both worlds, but it may be a bit tough for you for a couple more years until your son might start going to sleep over birthday parties and stuff like that. Keep inviting your friends over for a chat, don't give up on trying! Do the most you can do to socialise, it's healthy for you to want to do that, but don't waste time comparing your situation to other people's, the grass in not always greener!
Agreed. I'd be pretty peeved if that were me but I applaud you for still going out and having a glass of wine. Maybe next time(hopefully there won't be a next time) you should have your wine and then maybe take a trip to the bookstore to read by yourself for a while or maybe hit up Redbox for a movie. Don't go home early just because someone bailed on you. Enjoy your time away from your child so you can feel refreshed and recharged. Going solo is tough work. I've been there.
