Hi! I am from India. Got married last year- and moved to a new city. I have no friends here, the family is so much into work that no one has time for talking with me. My husband and his family do not have much contact with the rest of the world and all we see is the house and the office upstairs. My husband has no time for me he just doesn't understand that I need someone to be there for me emotionally. We go out once in a week for dinner, I know it is better than what many people have but I feel alone all the other time. I have no one to talk to, nowhere to go and I feel trapped and depressed. I find myself thinking that it would be great if I died. I am tired of always bringing the topic up that my hubby has no time for me- it affects what little time we have together but I feel so lonely that I end up complaining a lot. I feel so alone. I try calling all the relatives and friends I have but they are all busy in their own life. My frustrations, the problems of living in this strange family, with totally conservative points of view does not interest anyone and besides I do not want to burden all with my trouble. So I keep bottling up the feelings. There is no fun , no joy and I find myself fantasizing about death. What can I do? I cannot call helplines, I cannot talk to anyone freely as the family members are never out of earshot. I cannot work outside, I cannot join classes, the neighbors are culturally poles apart from me, besides, I cannot speak to anyone openly. It is not as if my husband does not love me. Despite our differences, I know he loves me.He does, I know but he just doesn't understand the need for spending time. We work in the same office, so he feels that should be enough. I feel I am losing myself, my vitality, my voice.... Am I being melodramatic? What can I do?
