I am counting down the days...

... until DH gets home.  I miss him so much and I'm so overwhelmed with taking care of DS by myself.  I am considering talking to someone about PPD because some of these feelings I've been having recently don't seem healthy.  

Today I went to go to the grocery store with LO and my car battery was dead because I left the truck open accidentally.  I seriously lost myshit.  I was screaming at the top of my lungs in the driveway and stomping around the yard.  DS was in the car and was looking at me like I had two heads, which who knows, maybe I did at that moment.  

These little things are really getting to me, and I miss DH so much.  He's been gone a year, but was home for midtour when DS was born.  It seems like forever.  We do have the opportunity to skype on weekends, but he is working all weekend and I contribute some of my grumpiness to missing our 'dates'.  

After rereading what I posted, I really don't have much of a point.  I just needed a place to vent to a bunch of strangers who understand these feelings, because none of my IRL friends do.

  • I'm sorry friend,

     EVERY SINGLE time my husband has left in some way or another the shiz has hit the fan.

     Hang in there!!

  • Totally understandable. Definitely find someone to talk to about the way you are feeling - even if your friends don't understand, hopefully they are still willing to listen.

    I was worried about PPD really early on and someone recommended I check out militaryonesource.com - I never looked into it because things got a lot better for me, but I believe they have some sort of counseling available.

  • You must be so overwhelmed and I can only imagine how I would feel in your shoes. My husband has been gone for about a month and I'm still struggling to hold things down. Find someone to talk to soon. I hope you get some relief.

    Thanks for the resource.  I totally forgot about militaryonesource; I'll check it out now.

  • You're doing great! You've made it this far, and now you're on the homestretch. Deployments stink! We're on the front end, and some days I just feel like it will never end. I have three small children at home, so I understand how you feel in regards to that as well. Is there someone that can watch your son briefly to give you a break for a while every now and again? A little help sometimes goes a long way. I'm sorry you're having a hard time right now--hang in there. *hugs*
