I have been dealing with my husband being gone for about a year and a half now. At first it was really hard and I struggled with it, but it is getting to be a normal rutine for me now. I am having a hard time finding a GOOD support system! Most of my friends at home have their husbands and families to deal with at night, and are busy during the day, so they are not available to talk to, nor do they have the energy to hang out. I tried joining a church group, but everyone was so busy on the week nights, they canceled the meetings for weekend meetings, which is when my husband is home and I need to spend time with him. I have tried meeting people on facebook to chat with, but those relationships tend to be short lived and fizzle out to the point that I feel like I am stalking people trying to get someone to talk to! I just wish I could find people who actually want to form a relationship.
You know what someone should come up with... a place with mcdonalds play equipment that has healthy food instead of french fries and does not have all the horrible single dads in the world there to ignore their children! Oh yeah and it needs to be practically free!
