Ready To Give Up...I'm 29 and married with 3 kids. I've dealt with depression for the last 15yrs. and recently started going back to counseling. I'm extremely bored with my life. I moved from Sacramento, CA to Youngstown, OH. I don't know anyone here, the people are strange, I have no friends, no car, no money, no job (interview tomorrow morning), my family in CA rarely interact with me, my husband is always busy or sleeping and I just want some excitement! I am so sick of sitting in this house every day and night watching the same DVDs over and over (no cable). I join all the major social sites in an effort to meet people but no one interacts with me. I'm starting to feel like I'm too old to even try to have a life anymore. I missed out on my 20's raising my children and I don't have any idea what to do to make friends. Please don't give me that "get out and do things to meet people" spill because you need money to do things which I do not have enough of, a babysitter would help but I have NO ONE for that either, plus a little thing called social anxiety. I've been trying to find things I'm interested in like poetry groups or art shows but I'm too scared to make the call to the poetry group and every time I make a plan to finally get out and go to the art museum my husband's daily life gets in the way. I don't know what to do. I want to give up and die.
