Hi everyone, I've been going through a rough time lately and I don't have anyone who I can really talk to. I went to get a referral to talk to a professional and it's harder than I thought to make an appointment with my insurance not fully covering it I just can't find an affordable shrink. I'm married with a 3 year old and I'm just completely a mess lately which is funny because I have mastered the art of hiding it to everyone. Mentally though I am lost. My husband doesn't understand and makes me feel like I'm just being dramatic the few times I've tried to talk to him, and we move a lot so I don't really have any friends I'm comfortable talking to. He has never been great with emotional comfort, and for awhile i never cared but now I just feel like I have no one. I'm so in love with my daughter and a lot of times I feel as though she is the only thing keeping me from breaking down completely. so I found this forum and I thought maybe if I could be around people who feel similar it might help.

Hey, welcome
Sorry you're having rough time
Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit.

Hey, having a partner that isn't all that great with the emotional stuff isn't always a bad thing.

A) You always know where you stand and how much help you can expect from them B) It means you have to rely on yourself because you have no other choice which forces you to be strong

Despite his issues with emotional comfort I hope he is somewhat supportive in other ways!

Although you don't have overly close friends in terms of being able to talk about all of this sometimes its easier to talk to someone who is more of a stranger. If you do have some people on your life (even if not really close) I'd try picking the one you feel most comfortable around or one you feel would not be so judgmental and test the waters by telling them a little of you feel and depending on how the conversation goes you can either choose to delve further or change the subject.

Alternatively there are loads of helplines you can call, these people are trained to listen and are reachable any time day or night. Don't feel that suicide lines aren't for you or that your problems are too small. The feelings you have right now are what they are set up for.

Can you explain a little further why you feel you are a mess right now and perhaps the community can help give more specific advice.

Hey Lonelygirl830 welcome.
Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.
