You really do need to have mommy friends- either online or in person. No one else is ever going to understand what sleep deprivation and sick children really mean. Not even a dad. We have to be there for each other and keep each other strong. Don't ever underestimate that mommy friend. Look around at your local playgrounds, at the ball parks, at the school, and at your church. You will find them. Be intentional about it. Don't stalk them but keep trying. Make sure that you put an effort into and that they see you really want to be friends. Especially if you are and an introvert like me. You have to come out of that shell. It will be okay even if you are rejected you will find someone. In the famous words of Dori- "Just keep swimming". There are a lot of mommies out there and you will find your match I promise.
