I am sorry you are feeling lonely, I identify. I am not yet a stay at home mom, but I will be soon. I am 8 months pregnant and have been a stay at home wife for almost a year. I live in a very rural area in PA and my husband works long hours, a few days a week. He will help me with chores I cant do on my own, but other than that it feels like he just wants to escape family life whenever he can. I understand his need for "space" but I am growing more lonely. Last night he asked me to go to a friends house with him. As I was standing in the bathroom dripping wet from a shower, trying to get ready, he made it clear that he didnt think I would want to go, and in fact he just wanted to go by himself. I felt so rejected. I am emotional and hormonal, lonely and desperate. I lived several years in a very diverse and "crunchy" town, with lots of friends and a healthy social life. Now, I barely leave the house. I am sorry to be a downer, but I am struggling for support. I hope your husband is supportive of you staying home, it is such an important thing to do for your family and children.
