The reality of my husband deploying this fall has finally hit me. I knew that it would but wasn't sure when it would happen. How can I let myself worry and cry and not affect my 1 year old son and make it harder on my husband? I know it is hard on my husband and I don't want to make it worse by making him worry about how I am handling it, but I need someone to talk to about it. I don't have any friends that are military and the FRG is 21/2 hrs away from me. How can I make sure that my worries are taken care of without making my sons or husbands worse? Please, all I want to do is cry right now thinking of what he will miss in our sons life. It breaks my heart. I know that he thinks about it as well, but how do I deal with it?
I am looking for encouragement and suggestions. If you think I am weak move on, I don't want to hear what you have to say.
