Hi everyone, I just joined hoping to meet a few friends here that I can confide in.
I was diagnosed with anxiety/depression years ago. I found that cymbalta helped me to be in a better mood, but now that I am pregnant I can no longer take cymbalta. I had many "fixes" that helped me get through my depression - they are bad I know! - smoking cigarettes and alcohol - but since I've been pregnant, I can no longer indulge in these.
I am having a hard time adjusting to my new life of being pregnant. I have been married for 4 years and was very happy with my husband until a few months ago - since I've been pregnant. He has not changed anything about his lifestyle - has not had to make any sacrifices for the pregnancy and I am becoming resentful, insecure and feeling very weepy. He goes out a few times a week - to bars - I can no longer and no longer want to do this. I dont feel like he cares at all. He just tells me to let him go out for a drink "once in a while" and stop worrying that I am everything to him, etc etc. It doesnt feel like this at all. One thing we have always done together is watch our football team at the local sports bar on sunday. Today he told me I should stay home because it will be too crowded and nowhere for me to sit. I burst into tears - taking this as he does not want me to go with him anymore - which I do believe. This is just one example. I have expressed myself tirelessly as to how unhappy I am with him going out so much. I wouldmt care if it was just once a week.
Anyway, I am thinking of talking with a therapist. I dont know how to control my obsessive thoughts. I dont have any close friends in the area. I'd probably be happier if I did but I dont know how to "make friends". Thanks for listening!!!
