I've been on bedrest for 8 weeks now with hopefully many more weeks to go and I can feel myself falling into a really lonely depression. I feel like nobody understands (the majority of my friends have never been pregnant) and I have nobody to talk to. Others I feel don't understand because they went on bedrest later on... I've been on it since 21 weeks. It's miserable. My husband doesn't understand and seems to be irritated by the fact he has to do everything and pay all the bills. He works 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, so I am home alone with our dogs for long lonely days and when he comes home he works even more so we never reall get quality time now. Cutting back on work isn't an option... We have bills to pay and he is in sales so if he doesn't work hard he doesn't get paid. I feel like I am an old person in a nursing home that is just forgotten about by everyone. I have no family here and most of my friends live in other states or at least a few hours away (everyone moved for whatever job they could get after college). I'm so lonely and my husband doesn't understand. I don't know what to do anymore, I can't go anywhere and having people come by when my husband is at work is more strain on me with the dogs than it's worth (plus I feel and look like crap... Let alone only shower every 2-3 days... So I'm not really in the mood to entertain). Can anyone relate? Has anyone made it through this without going insane? I could use done encouragement.
