It's our first deployment I'm here with my two kids a 3 yr old boy and 4 month old girl.
My husband left the day after our daughters birth so among all the postpartum emotions I had to also deal with my husband leaving us so soon and for such a long time. I planned on going back to school while he was gone but in the last 4 months I have realized it's probably not the best option. I do live with my in laws and they are a huge help but it's still not the same as having ,my husband around to help me,especially at night. I'm not sure whether going back to school is the best option since I'm already worn out. I also think it might be a good thing that way i can go ahead and start and not waste any more time. People say i'm using my husbands deployment as an excuse to not go back to school.
that really hurts because I'm trying to do my best and sometimes I don't think people realize how difficult it is and how overwhelming things can get. I really don't have anybody who truly understands.
