I am embarrased to post this, but am curious if there is anyone else whom is a SAHM that feels this way.
I have my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and before children, I worked full time. I have been at SAHM now for 8 years. The first several years I struggled with depression being home while everyone else I knew left for work. When DH was at work, I often felt sad because I was home. I felt like everyone was out working in society while I sat home every day. It was a huge adjustment. I do not regret being a SAHM, but did and still don't understand why I would feel depressed when everyone was gone at work. I was home working, doing a important job, but I struggled accepting it. Does that make sense? We choose for me to stay home.
Has anyone else who is a SAHM felt this way or went through this type of struggle? If so, what made it better?
Thanks for reading.
