I'm really stressed out. I just had a baby. Moved into a new home. I should be on top of the world. But on Christmas my guy checked his email and received his official orders for deployment. He deploys next month! I'm sure some of this is postpardom depression. But I'm super stressed over the deployment. My guy will be gone for almost 2 years. I want to enjoy the time we have as a family but I have a hard time not focusing on him leaving. I'm trying to be a strong army wife, I just don't know how. As I said we just moved and I don't have any friends close enough to talk to who would understand. I feel lost.

Get as much information as possible, do you have any other children? there is a program that will help the other children adapt or have fun while he is gone. They put my 3 children in thai kwon do for free, they loved it very much. I don't remember the name of the program, but when you go to the yellow ribbon just ask one of the people there with information. 

Quoting skiesmomma:
