Did anyone else feel really a mess after their wedding? We got married on April 10, and everything was as close to perfect as it could have been. We had a great honeymoon (though I did get bronchitis), and since I’ve been back I’ve been really down. Just sad and unable to feel happy about all the wonderful things I have in my life. I’ve got a great husband, two wonderful dogs, and a decent job, but I can’t find anything that makes me feel more than blah. I’ve had bouts of depression before, but this feels a little different.
Anyone else out there feeling less than happy now that your married?

Im not post-wedding, but I’ve read alot of posts by new brides about feeling depressed after the wedding. I know I feel that way just after a vacation that I’d been looking forward to, so factor in months of planning, a major life change, and a vacation and it’s no wonder many brides get the blues.
Maybe try to find a new project to focus on, like a home project or a fitness goal. It might help that feeling of being adrift and give you something to be excited about.
Hang in there and good luck!

Those are both really good ideas. I’ve been spending more time with my dogs going on long walks etc and that’s really enjoyable. I feel pretty at peace doing that. I’m working to bring that sense of contentment into other aspects of my life as well. It’s funny but my mother suggested that I might be really worn down from all of the wedding stuff and simply not rested enough so that could be making everything worse. I’m going to try to get 8 horus of sleep a night and fill my free time with things that are enjoyable and fulfilling.
