My husband just left. He's only gone for a month (workup). It's our first deployment, and I'm FREAKING OUT. I'm so sad. I just don't know how to deal with an empty house (besides my toddler) all the time. The house just feels so lonely.
I'm now freaking out about the Fall/ Winter when he'll be gone for two 4 month deployments (out 4, in 3-4, out another 4)
I work, I go to play groups.. but it's the evening that kills me. During the day it doesn't phase me too much because he was always gone during the day, but I'm so sad now, during the time he should be heading home. I plan to explore the area, make new friends, plant a garden, but that doesn't take up the evenings... He just left very recently.
Does it get better? How do you deal with it day in and day out? How will I put up with 4 more years of this? I know it's worth it for him of course, but I just feel so overwhelmed. Thanks girls.
