I have been feeling emotionally lonely for a long time now.

I have been feeling emotionally lonely for a long time now. I barely have family, my mom and dad are in another country, living apart, so while I talk to them almost daily we are all physically apart. I only have my husband and my toddler son. While my husband claims he can listen, I can't finish a sentence without it sounding as a complaint to his years. Personal preferences has become complaints to him, as well as views in how to raise a child healthy physically and mentally. His needs are satisfied now entirely by what the internet has to offer (as probably the majority of people have become to)
I have no friends, barely any coworkers scatters through the country ( I currently work from home). And no one anymore with whom to share some words. I realized that simple talking face to face with someone, without the other one reaching for the phone once in a while, is now the exception. I insisted a few times on having a healthy relationship especially now, when having a child, and I was afraid of getting to a point where we are emotionally estranged. I know there is no way back from there. There will be no fire to rekindle. No one is getting younger and we can no longer do things we did in the past which made us realize we are in love.
I looked at it as a fire that needs to be maintained because once is out, we are not able to light it up again.
And then what? we are two people under the same roof: one needing tp be left alone, and the other one needing an actual partner.

We have no family Christmas photo this year (for the first time). Years later I will be looking at the videos and pictures with me and my son and will remember today's feeling.

@Lookn4raysofSunshine is better now, but I know is temporary. It is on and off. Once I see and realize certain things, I can't un-see them, so I know it won't get better in the future.
