Really, I have this friend she has a 5mos old, she going to school, working, and her DH is in Iraq. She's been real strong and doing great. Her DH just left 2 weeks ago after a 2 week visit. Now she's very sad, she calls me crying and she feels overwhelmed. She said she wished her DH didn't visit because it made her realize what they are both missing. I'm worried about her and I told her to make an appointment with her doctor and explain what she's going through. Do you think there is anything a doc can do for her or am I wasting her time.

That's the normal ups and downs of being a military wife...I assume she is one. Anyways, they will have her make an appt. to talk to someone about it all, probably. You did good telling her to talk to her Dr.

CubanFlre...I am a Navy wife, and talking to a Dr. is going to help because they will refer her to a counselor who she can see face to face and talk to confidentially. She doesn't need to be neglectful or suicidal to have someone to talk to. Sometimes, friends especially ones who aren't going through just can't get it. A counselor will know better how to handle it.

During your pregnancy, did you have horrible, vivid, mind-blowing dreams?
