I hate living alone... KyliesMommy2012 Tokyo, Japan 1163 posts

So, we had been living with my parents for financial reasons. Now we have a house and DD and I both hate it. We can't adjust... She is about to be a year and she just is not herself there. When we come to my parents, she is SO happy. It is making me depressed and I feel like she is as well. We were so used to being surrounded by people and now it is just her and I most of the time, as SO works a lot.

I just wish I could snap my fingers and we could just be adjusted.... My anxiety kicks in so bad at night and I think someone is going to break in and rape/murder me or hurt DD. I have all of these irrational thoughts. I HATE IT.

From the time DS was born until he was 2 1/2 we lived with my mom and sister. When DH and I got married, we moved to an apartment. DH works offshore, so he was gone half the time. I kind of love the peace and quiet, but it took a few months for DS to adjust to it. It helped that I had a friend in our complex with a boy close to his age to play with on occasion. Do you live near a park or do any of your neighbors have kids close to her age? Or maybe you can get a pet :)

As far as the night stuff... it really did take me like 6 months to ease my fears about that kind of thing. We even got a gun just in case. (Of course, all safety precautions are taken and DS could never get to it or fire it or anything)
