We’ve been married for just a little over a month and I am just feeling off and kind of blue. I’m keeping active, I’m teaching myself to cook and bake, I’m looking for a job, I go out with my friends, we’re planning a vacation for the beginning of October. I’ve done everything I can to head off PWD and I think I’ve done a fairly good job. I’m not really sad that the wedding is over, it was a wonderful day and I enjoyed planning it but I really missed having free weekends with my man.My husband is gone for work but I’m use to that. I do miss him, but I just keep myself busy when he’s gone. I just can’t put my finger on what’s wrong.
It just kind of sucks, has anyone else felt like this?

I know how you feel. Sometimes you just get in a funk. I really am in that right now and we have been married for almost a year. I really need some more interaction with other people, it’s just tough because I don’t really know anyone.

I think a lot of people feel that way. My good friend was just saying to me the other day that someone should warn you how hard the first months can be. It’ll get better, you’ll see!

I’d call it a funk too. It can happen anytime. It’s frustrating when you feel like you’re doing everything right and you still don’t feel very good. I say just be patient, keep doing what you’re doing (do you exercise? I always feel better when I’m going to the gym regularly, good old endorphins) and the sun will come out very soon 🙂

whenever you build yourself up for something, this can happen. The longer it took to build to, the harder you can hit on the way down. I would not worry too much about it. You are doing the right thing by keeping busy!

I’m not married yet, but ALL of my married friends experienced this sort of thing shortly after they got married. They just sort of fell into a little slump for a while, then all of a sudden, one day, they were back to normal.
You know, I think this has to do with this huge change that has just taken place in your life. Any change, even if it is a wonderful one like this, effects us emotionally. I think it manifests itself in us just feeling a little low for a while. It doesn’t make a lot of sense, but what you are feeling is completely normal. I’ve experienced this whenever I would move somewhere very different or start a new school. But pretty soon, you’ll be feeling like your old self again!
