    I don't work outside the home, I don't make phone calls, I don't have much contact with anyone other than my DH, DGD, and DGS. Sometimes I need a release. Around the holidays it seems do be worse(imagine that!!).

    Sometimes I just need to release, I don't knoww where else to do it. I don't like to intrude in anyones lives but I don't know how else to release it.

    If anyone has aany suggestionss of where this would be more appropriate, okay.

    "Releasing" occurs in a bathroom, right? [​IMG]


    If you mean venting, we're all ears. LOL

    Vent away cknmom! I totally understand. I stay at home and by my own choice, I don't have much of a social life. Much better that way, less drama! This IS my socialization and interaction.

    I'm truly sorry for your problems. I firmly believe that interaction with people is essential for everyone. You need to get out and about. I am retired and go for coffee every morning and play cribbage with my pals. If I had to stay home 24/7 with my wife as my only companion we would both go bonkers very soon.
    Some suggestions: Coffee group, cards, church, volunteering. Great satisfaction can be gained through volunteering. One great and very much needed area is at a veterans home or hospital if you are near one. Those poor people get shot up or mentally broke down and are forgot about. Nursing homes are full of lonely people. One thing volunteering does is make one forget about our troubles when we see others more in need than ourselves. Hope this helps, Stan

    Splitting wood does wonders for me.

    Shellie-

    Thanks-

    I wasn't expecting such a quick answer. I am overloaded with emotions. We have a daughter in Afghanistan. We have guardianship of her oldest son. We have permanent guardianship of our oldest grand-daughter.
    I can't find a job, I need one where I stay at home and don't get hammered with taxes or permit fees.

    I can find many things to do at home. DH doesn't want anyone we don't know in the home. I don't drive(I am working on it).

    I have many ways to make money if DH keeps out of it. I have no credit card or bank account. I try to do any money making under the table or like cleaning for a co.

    My dream is to be writing and be published. Maybe somedaaay!!!

    It is hard for me to be the one to be complaining, I am used to be the one listening.
    Sometimes it''s nice to be the one off-loading. I don't do it much, but sometimes it's needed.

    Let me guess, when you do complain you feel guilty? Thats where I am at. It sounds like you do have your share of worry. It sounds like you need to sit DH down and explain that if you are going to help with the finances then you need his support.

    Quote:I agree. I would add that you need to find out what your husbands objections are - security of stuff, concern for your safety (probably) and discuss them.
