How do I stop myself from losing the plot?

I'm a stay at home mum. My son is at school during the day, so that just leaves me and my baby. She is total magic and I am not suffering from post natal depression. My partner works long hours in a mentally straining job, so when he gets home, he is too tired to talk with me. We talk about mundane day to day stuff, but when it comes to an actual conversation, it is sadly lacking. I love my partner, but I am so lonely and desperately craving intellectual stimulus. I don't feel like a woman anymore, just a mum and a partner. I am finding that I am eating myself into a big black hole every evening to try and fill the emotional void. I have applied for several jobs, but it is very difficult, as I am only available when my partner is home because our daughter has a medical condition that prevents her from going to childcare. How do I get some excitement back into my life?

What she did for intellectual stimulation was to start a book club - all she did was put up a few notices in the local library etc and she got a lot of answers. She did it in her own style - very laid back, quite bohemian, she kept control of... More
