With your spouses gone how long does it take for you to get use to sleeping alone?
I'm feeling way too sleep deprived. Ugh.

The first few weeks. Buy it isn't the sleeping alone, its the dreading waking up alone.

you just spoke the truth! thats my hardest part of the day is the waking up and realizing youre still alone

I usually get a sleep pattern within a week of him leaving. Shoot it takes me longer to get a sleep pattern going when I have a new baby (like now lol) than when he deploys. I guess when he deploys I just put everything like that on the back burner and go about my day and try not to dwell on him being gone.

It usually just takes me a few days to adjust to him being gone. My 8 month old is what keeps me up at night!

I wanna say when he deployed it was about 2 months. He is working tonight and it is 12:16 and I am still up! Will probly be up for a bit longer! Then I will sleep on the couch till he gets home!

I'm the odd one out here  but I sleep great when DH is gone... the whole bed to myself and no elbow in my head or leg flopped over me pinning me to the bed, and NO SNORING. It's wonderful

It's tough for me to get to sleep, tougher than normal. Though, he's never been gone more than three months at a time so far. Not looking forward to a deployment, but with his new MOS, it's inevitable.
