So I am currently AD Air Force. I have been in for 3 years now out of a 6 year enlistment. The last 3 years have been the most miserable of my life, but it has made my family financially independent. The only bright spot in my life at this point is my 19 month old son. Lately things keep happening that make me feel like I need to get away and quickly. For a month I have been thinking of doing Palace Chase and going reserves. That way I can stay home with my son the majority of the time and have a bit of an income. It's such a big decision because we would be cutting our income in half and I don't know how we would make it, though I know a lot of families in the military easily make it on one member's salary. I'm so torn, the ONLY thing keeping me in is the money, and I can't convince myself that the money is not worth it. And I don't know if I could teach my son the way his daycare does and keep him occupied. But i also think Do i spend the day with people who treat me like crap and apprecite nothing i do, or stay at home with people who love me and dont care what mistakes i make? It's a big change, is it possible? How hard is it to be a SAHM? Is this a good decision or a stupid one?
