No, you're no being a total idiot. You feel lonely and distressed due to this geographical move, and could be really helped by counselling. YOu don't mention which country you have moved to, but there should be counselling services available where you are, as many other cou tries have better developed health and mental health services than South Africa.
When a counsellor has helped you to feel better about yourself, you will be able to make friends.
Its a shame if your husband actually dismisses any discussion of normal human feelings as ppsychobabble but have you actually tried speaking calmly to him ( men get alarmed when too many feelings pour out too quickly, and they don't feel able to handle them !) ? He might be more understanding that you are expecting.
You sound as though you could be significantly depressed, and if you will take the initiative to get yourself to see a proper shrink locally, for a proper assessment and advice and help, you could be feeling a great deal better than this, before long.
