Terrible. Moved to new area metro Denver. Don’t know many people. Husband always working and I have disabilities.
Hi, do you belong to a church or can you get out and meet people socially, like through a meet up group. Some cities have a newcomers group
I can understand how you may feel. And I’m not positive of your situation. So I apologize if I’m off a bit. But whenever a person moves to a new area. They can go through moments like what you are going through. And it sounds as if there are other things that are making it harder to adjust. But maybe try to change your approach. It’s very normal to compare a new move to the old one. Mainly the old place was familiar. Here everything is new. Different. And that can be scary. But there many ways you can go about it. This is a great opportunity for you to have a fresh start. Grow as a person. Broaden your knowledge and experiences. Try to be patient. Maybe start off by thinking of one thing that you would like to do. Even if it’s a little thing. Like a walk. Or even sitting in the yard. Sometimes the hardest step to take is the first one
Hello and welcome to the SG Depression group. This is a safe place where you can share your thoughts, feelings and struggles without judgement. Continue to post and you will find other members who are confronting their problems. We are here to listen, offer encouragement, comfort and support to one another. I hope that you find what you are looking for here at this site. Getting settled into a new home in a new city can be challenging. Are you able to get out of the house by yourself? If you are able to get out of the house, you could check to see if there are any groups in your area that you could join (such as a gardening club or a welcoming group, book club, etc.) If you are able to get out by yourself, you might consider taking a class such as chalk painting, painting, art, cooking, pottery, etc. anything that may interest you.
If you can get out, perhaps consider looking for somewhere to volunteer. This would give opportunity to meet people with similar interests. A good place to start is the local Chamber of Commerce. They likely will know of or can connect you to places that use volunteers. Activity clubs are another idea the chamber might could connect you with. Community centers often have programs either for free (painting, cooking classes, etc.) and/or volunteer opportunities. Prayers for peace and wisdom as you adjust to your new home.
