Huge thanks to all of you who have offered your support and advice for me! I really, really appreciate it. And it’s comforting to know that there are lots of us who are going through things like this!
In the month or so since I started this thread, I would say things are going a bit better. I look back at my OP and sort of shudder – I was a firey hot mess! I think things sort of reached a head at that point and DH and I had several really good talks about why I was so sad, why adjusting was hard, and he was very responsive. He did ask that I try to work on if not being more positive, at least being thankful for and recognizing the things about my life that are good.
I went for a weekend at home a couple weeks ago, and even though I ended up being sick as a dog for the entire trip (the joy of working with little kids!) it was still wonderful to see everyone. Now I just have to make it a couple more weeks, and I get to go home for the whole week of thanksgiving.
I’m still not loving it here, but it’s not the aggressive, soul sucking hatred that I was experiencing. My job is going well, and the weather isn’t quite as hot as it was. THANK GOD. I still have some days that are “down” ones, but they are further apart and less intense. Right now, I really need to start focusing on finding hobbies/social acitvities.
Anyways – thank you all, so much for your support!
