Quoting LMDooley: Hi! I'm new to cafemom. I am the wife of a Navy Seabee. My husband has been in 17 years and is currently on recruiting duty in Indiana which he hates, before that we were in Gulfport, MS. In August he will be leaving for a year unaccompanied to Bahrain. We aren't sure where he will end up after that. The kids and I will stay here until our daughter graduates in 2016.

MY Irl name is Danielle been married to Jason since Nov 23 2004, he was active duty army them stationed at ft riley ks. his contract shortly ended and was sent papers 2 years later to IRR He's been to IRaq 4 times( gotta love those year long deployments) HE renenlisted when his irr ear was up we went to FT gordon in GA whehas depression combinded with bad e he went from infantry to a 25Q Moved to Ft. Hood (the asshole of america in my opion) we were there three long ainful years. he went through officer trainging becoming a sgt from a secialist. his contracted ended again this time he signed up with the national guard and just made staffsargent. He's been in a tottal of 11 years i have a ds from a prior marriage and our dd HOpe Elizabeth for our marriage. its very difficult living with him this last year and half he depression and ptsd really but refuses to seek help. instead he "workouts" hes i tirathelete which means he swims 1.5 miles a day and then depending on the weather eather bikes 80 miles or runs 30. he says this helps him regain focus. he havent been intimate in months ive moved to a seperate bedroom. He will not give me a divorce even though i have asked him too for the last year. he can get one free through jag i live on disablity for back problem and my monthly income is a stagering 690 a month. Hope has told me on several occasions she hates her dad . he expect her to act like an adult not make any noise sit and watch tv and feed herself. my God shes a babyi spend most of the da on the bathroom. still. she now insists on spleeping on me and having to hold my hand to fall asleep because he is so verbally absuive to both of us. yesturday at lunch he grabbed her arm in public, i told her not to worry ssome times are very bad and i cannot eat or drink anything and  do anything about it , that it will all be ok soon. even though i have my doubts. hes a loaded gun waiting to go off. i also have crohn's disease and there are days where my sysmptoms are so bad i cannot eat and spend most of the days in the bathroom. thank good ds (19) is here. last  he spent the night at a friends i took my crohns meds and went sleep knowing dh would be home about 5 when i woke up it was 530 i asked her if dad feed her he said (hope you can fucking feed yourself your not a baby) when he says things like that i feel very sorry for him because he is distorying hi relationship with daughter. i on the other listen too music love love movies! espsically musicals, some tv (the good wife, NCIS, Crminal mind) i live to go camping and swiming at the lake too. but even done none of the things mentioned before since he got home see we are a one car family and he almost always takes the car. leaving me straded at home. thats why im reainting everything i can cant stand to look at these walls any longer.  I usder to be a girly girl wearing make up with exccentric vintage outfits now i stap my hair back in a pony or under a ball cap those a shirt and jeans on and i'm out the door. My dh and i have not been on a date night since dd was bore 6 years ago.  the best place we were stationed except for the weather was ft Gordon good people there.\\



the WOrst ever was Ft. Hoood (weathrer/ and rude people there)  so this was so long and drawn ut ive been needing to get that off my chest for awhile see i only have one IRL firend shes like a lil sis to me ive known her 14yrs. she said hoppe and i could stay when ever we wanted but she herself is going through a divorce and she has 4 kids and i dont want to be a burden on here. thanks for reading ill be commenting more through out the coming days
