Hello ladies! This is my first time really reaching out, so please be gentle with me.
This is something that I am desperately seeking help with. To make a long story short, before the birth of our son my husband went through a long process to try and join the army. Due to a medical issue he had a few years back it caused major issues and we had to jump through many hoops to finally get him medically approved to join.
Now that he has the go ahead, we are so torn. On one hand neither of us want him to join because of the baby, and the milestones he would miss combined with the fact that I would be by myself to raise the baby for a little while with little to no help. (Closest family is 3 hours away, all friends work and have little free time).
And on the other hand, we think he should join for the opportunity along with all of the benefits it would bring.
I have struggled with this decision for months and nobody in my daily life has really been of much help.
I guess what I'm looking for is advice from current military spouses who have children.
Is it hard having them gone and missing out on new things with your children?
Would you prefer you SO not to be in the military?
I just need help guys
I am so terrified of being alone and having to juggle a new baby, my job, my crazy animals and life events with no help but I also am nervous about missing out on a great opportunity.
