Does anyone else feel its difficult to reach out to family and friends when you need to talk or a hug? My husband is amazing in so many ways but I get so low and can't put words around how I'm feeling. It gets stuck in my head and then it goes round and round and I suppose in order to keep it together in front of my kids , hubbie and work keeping it all in takes more effort than actually breaking down. I feel better when I do cry and talk about it but sometimes its like I get stuck and I don't know how to reach out. My hubbie is a typical man in that unless I spell it out he's so use to me coping with it that he takes it for granted. He's a really keen sportsman, does triathlons and has invited his group round for a bbq this afternoon. I can't help but feel resentful and feel stuck in our bedroom as I'm just not up to socialising and putting a brave face on it. He just organised it and I feel mean saying no so I let him go ahead even though I'm screaming in my head that I want to be able to just slob on the sofa and have a duvet day but I can't because he's got friends round.
