How do you handle it? My husband has only been gone two months now and I can't stand it already. Our situation isn't even that bad, I get to go visit him every other week. I know so many other families have much more extreme cases. I just wonder how you all do it? I hate this and I feel like I'm ready to throw in the towel already, but we really don't have that option.

My husband was in the Army for 8 years and whether he was in the field training for a few days or deployed for over a year, it was hard, not only on me, but also our son. Some things that helped me through this time was to keep busy. I am a list maker so I made a list of everything that I wanted to accomplish in the time that I knew my husband would be gone. I also took up hobbies, and I made sure that I had some "me" time every once in a while. As for my son, what worked best for him was to have plenty of pictures of his daddy around his room and in his own special photo book. I also bought him a daddy doll. You can see what it is here. They also have some good separation tips on there too. Cont..
