After being put on bed rest for a mandatory 2 weeks for contracting shingles, I have been suffering from the worst depression. Being stuck in a house by yourself (ok I have the cat to keep me company) is really depressing. And to make things worse no one really wants me around either. Even though I have been on the island for almost two years I have failed miserably to make friends.
I think being pregnant is just making it even harder. And people from my job hardly ever want to do anything.
I guess what is bringing this up is that people from my workplace uninvited me to a BBQ. I know, it doesn't sound like a big deal. But what makes me feel bad is the way it was brought to my attention, like...no one wants me around. I understand where my coworkers are coming from with the fear of me having shingles, but it has cleared up. I guess I am just hurt because I go days without having a conversation with anyone, and that's pretty darn depressing. Netflix has become my only friend.
What do you do when no one wants to be around you and you have nothing to do? I have tried to make the best of it and catch up on TV shows, I have read and cooked. What cures depression for you?
