Hi! I am new to this forum so let me first say hello to everyone. I am usually a fun and silly person but I have been depressed for some time now. I believe that it began when my father passed away 10 years ago. I have sought help, but have not had much progress. I am married and living in a place where I do not want to be. I have nothing in common with this community, (religiously or politically) and would prefer to move closer to the city and not be stuck in such a rural area. My husband will not move and he does have some valid points as to why we can't at this time, but I am miserable. He is a good man, but does not have much compassion or empathy for me. I don't want to make him look bad as he is not, but he just does not understand me. I have no real friends to speak of. I have friends but they are more like acquaintences. There is no one for me to go to just have some coffee or go to a movie. I feel so alone. I feel so isolated. I have a career that I am not happy in, and I feel like I am just existing. There is nothing that brings me joy anymore. I don't want to sound like I am a complainer as I  have so many things to be thankful for and happy about, but I just cannot get out of this funk! This is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more that I want to say, but I just can't get it down now. Too too  much. Thank you folks for letting me vent. :)

Welcome to HW! we are glad you found us. I think we have fairly similar situations, me and my wife didn't not grow up where we currently live and aren't really all that outgoing socially, facily is pretty far away and we don't really have too many good friends around here. It can be very lonley sometimes. what we like to do is go out to dinner with another couple, my wife was friends with this other woman i am i guess more of an acquaintence with the guy, every week and this really does wonders for us. The guy isn't my favorite person to hang with but we get along well. Maybe try to do something like this? Maybe some of these acquaintences can become better friends? Is there any reason you wouldn't call one of them up and see if they want to get out and do something? Is there something other than the economy thats keeping you where you are?

Feel free to write out all you want to, thats what we are here for. Hope your day is getting better!
