My DH and I have only been married 3 months so this is my first deployment and even though he has only been gone a little more than a week I am having a very difficult time. I have been trying to stay busy, which has been challenging since I am a teacher and we are now on summer vacation. My friends and family are great support and the days are going by ok. Unfortunately, I am still crying my eyes out every night because I am so lonely. I knew it would be hard, and I am guessing the lovely preggo hormones are not helping the situation. Sorry to vent but if any of you have any advice on how to get through the next 6 months I would love to listen.
