To start this story out I am going to provide some background info. My husband and I are mil to mil and have both been in the AF for 4 years. I have just been promoted to SSgt and he is waiting to pin on his new stripe. Anyway, his shift switched from days to nights about 2 weeks ago and I am really struggling. We have a 16 month old at home and I am 23 weeks pregnant with #2. I don't see my husband through the week unless we drive to base and eat lunch with him in the evenings. However, when we do that it takes time away from the things that I need to accomplish at home. He is the only person in his WHOLE shop who is mil to mil with kids. Everyone else in his shop who is married their spouse doesn't work. He gets very irrtated at me when I bring this issue up saying that its hard for me to handle my mission at work, our son and everything else without him there. I understand that some sacrafices need to be made being in the military for things such as TDY's, deployments and exercises. But when it's just normal operations I want to know why we have to be so stressed out. I want my husband to see what I see in this situation but I really don't think he does. I am so tired I have literally fallen asleep at my desk the past two days and I am falling behind in my school work. I just don't know what it's going to take to get him to see that something needs to be done. I know I am whining and not making sense but right now it's just super hard for me to do what I need to do without him being there.
