    I've heard many times about brides and grooms feeling depressed after their wedding. Their time as fiancees is full of activity and excitement and they're used to having all the attention on them.

    I have to say, I'm feeling it.

    First let me say that I in no way regret or have any doubts about marrying DH. I am super happy about that. But I feel like everything else in my life sucks. The job I haven't been too crazy about I now totally hate. I want to do a career change, but am struggling with figuring it all out. I feel like my life is boring. All I can think about is running away to an island! It's just crazy!

    I wish I could just snap out of this! Has anyone else dealt with this? Oh, and this isn't all because I'm missing wedding planning. I'm so over that. (Although I will say that getting wedding pics and a video this week have given me a pick me up.) This is so frustrating!

      I am going to be there after we get back too. I've actually been thinking about it in advance so I can try not to let it get too bad. I'm already counting down the days at work until we leave and I know coming back is going to be so miserable. I hate my job so much and sometimes life just drags.

      My post wedding plan to combat the blues is to try and find something coming up in the future that I can look forward to and plan. Even if it's as simple as a weekend trip or even something special for our first anniversary. It won't be the same experience as the lead up to the wedding but just the idea of having something to look forward to will help.

      If you find any brilliant solution please let me know :-)

          Wow Kristy, I have got to say everything that you are feeling is exactly me too!

          Especially the job thing. Oh I so am in the same boat.

          I too am in the midst of weighing my options on a career change. Problem is even though I am not too thrilled with my job I am not sure I could go somewhere else and do something I really want to do and make the $$$ to pay bills.

          So I get it! the best thing in my life is my DH..Love him more than anything and I am sooooo happy to be a Mrs. now. I kinda missed the wedding planning right after but that has passed.

          Hang in there Kristy you are not alone!

            Thanks for the words of encouragement. I never thought I'd be one of the ones to be all grumpy afterwards!

            By the way Andi, your siggy pic makes me smile.

              It just hit me that after we get back, I'm going to have nothing to do- I lost my job (which I hated anyway) 3 months ago, and planning the wedding has been my main focus. I haven't wanted to look for a job, and I'm desperate for a career change, too, so it's going to be a challenge.
              It's funny how I'm constantly trying to distract myself from what I need to do- I've distracted myself from the wedding, now I'm using the wedding to distract myself from what I have to do when we get back!
