  • She needs to stay busy and start to build herself a support system. Friends she can talk to, lean on if needed. My husband was deployed last year with very short notice and all you can do is try to get into a routine and pass the time. Also, writing him letters and getting things together to send always helped me to feel like I was still involved in his life and it made me feel like I was still taking care of him.
