Been living with my parents for 2 months so far. I am 22 and have a 16 month old daughter. My husband is deployed and my parents were adamant that I come home to live with them so I could have a support system. That had always been the plan if my husband was to deploy. He has been gone for about 2 1/2 months so far.
Since I got here we have had our share of disagreements, I have felt like my parents have stepped on my toes with my daughter. I myself haven't been able to progress as a mother. We used to live in Montana but my parents moved to Germany, thus, here I am, with no car, and 30 minutes from anything. In order to go anywhere I have to fit into their schedule which makes sense since they are on gas rations and we live so far from base.
I haven't been able to make things work and have been miserable.
I recently decided that I had had enough and bought a plane ticket back to the states and I leave Sunday. My mom was hurt by my choice and I reassured her that I was doing it for the right reasons as I do feel that I am for my daughter. If it was just me, I would make things work.
The closer Sunday gets the sicker I feel. I wake up sick every morning since I bought the ticket.
I feel bad for leaving my mom and my sisters and can't seem to shake the sadness.
I go back and forth about feeling that it is the right decision. I have to keep telling myself why I chose to leave in the first place otherwise I find myself wondering if I should stay.
If I am making the right decision why do I feel so shitty about it?
