Dearest Tigger,
I am praying for you to be comforted and encouraged. I have gone through a similar season of emotions. Just when I though all was well and I would make it through...something else would happen to send me back into a depressed, lonely state of emotion turmoil. Life had no more passion. Things I used to be able to do that brought a longer had that effect.
As a member of this site and this board...I was able to find real folks who had an understanding of my place in life for his season. I was able to support others, give beyond my own need and have support and loving encouragement served on my seemingly broken table of life.
I am grateful to God that I chose to remain here and reach out to others and NOT return empty.
We cannot take the place of our husband (which I know your not asking us to), we may not even be able to be right there to share a cup of tea or a hearty laugh...but because we car and we are together with you in this strong community...we can be here where we are , all over the world, to do our best to bring a smile to you, comforting words, smilies, cyber hugs and support to you.
Sometimes the emotions seem to be far greater in their strength than we is just seeming that way. You are strong, you are an overcomer. Look at how far you've come. Look at what you've come through.
I HEAR YOU!!! Sweetheart, I promise that I do. We all do. Check your private messages. I mean evey word of it.

Love and Hugs,

Hi Tigger,

I just wanted you to know that we are here for you. I know it gets hard at times, but you will get through. Since June 05, my dh and I have lived together for a total of 8 months(maybe less). It has been school after school, and once we got here in Spet. 06, Oct06 he was off to deployment. Now that he is extended, I won't see him until next year sometime. Being a miltary spouse is a very hard job. I try to keep myslef busy as much as possible. I cry twice a week,and then I am okay. My family does not understand because they are not going through this, and that is why I have chosen to continue to participate on this board. For the support and the friends that I make from each class. Keep your head up and keep smiling, everything will be fine.

I am sorry you feel alone. 10 months is a long time.

My father is Army, my brother a Marine, and my soon to be husband in the Coast Guard. I HATE when my loved ones are gone, but this web site is so awesome. I really don't know what I would have done if I didn't find out about this web site. It actually makes me apprechiate my loved ones in the service more.

If you haven't already, try to find a group of people that have a loved one stationed with your husband. If there isn't one, you should make one and hopefully others will find you. I'm sure you will find others. If no one then you can P/M me if you just want to talk to someone. :D

I'm sorry you are struggling so much. I don't have any sage words of advice for you, but have you considered talking to a local military Chaplain? They would have the perspective of both the military AND the spiritual support you may need.

I'll pray for you to find the strength to survive this.

when my husband decided he wanted to join the military, we were already married. I had no prior warning of him having any desire to be a part of army life. He asked for my support, but basically told me that he was going to do it whether I wanted him to or not. That was over a year and a half ago. During that time, he has been away for a combined total of 10 months and I have stayed home trying my hardest to deal with this kind of life and be supportive to him. I have spent countless nights praying for strength to get me through this and asking God why He chose this path for me. I still have yet to understand why this is my path and wondering if I can be in marriage by myself. There are times when I don't feel married and I miss him so bad I can't do anything but cry. My husband does not understand all this so it really doesn't do any good to talk to him about it. And I am tired of complaining to my family about it because it seems the more I say, the harder it is for them to like him. I feel so alone. I don't know what anyone can do to help me nor do I expect anything, but I just need someone to hear me.
