I know we've all been through deployments before and I'm not looking for anyone's sympathy, I just need somewhere to share my feelings with others who know what I'm going through.
DH just got back from Iraq last May and was home on dwell time until yesterday. His unit deployed in February, so we kind of got to skip the first three months of the deployment, which is awesome, but this still sucks. Since he is arriving late he doesn't get leave and they don't know for sure if this deployment will be 9 months or 12, so it's hard to set a date in my head to look forward to. This is his third deployment, but his first to Afghanistan and his first time leaving DD. I know we'll all make it to the end of this deployment no worse for wear, but I'm still sad, obviously. Before having DD deployments didn't seem THAT bad, but I am dreading this one!! I just feel so alone this time and I know DH is going to miss so many things. Ugh!! Ok I'm done wallowing. Thanks for reading if you made it this far. I'm gonna go keep myself busy now lol!
