Yes, yes, yes. There is a local mom’s group and while I think I have made a few friends, it seems that my family (specifically kids and husband) are often excluded from group activities. Then, I’ll see photos of these moms (and families) at weekend getaways and other holiday parties and activities. I realize that we just don’t fit in and my kid/husband combo are too much or something like that. It’s definitely lonely. I try not to take it personally. Also, I get tired from dealing with the ADHD behavior from kids/spouse and I cringe when people ask how my kid is doing. I don’t want to be inauthentic, which I feel like people can tell, but I don’t want to burden them or constantly talk about my kid’s struggles.
