I'm a military spouse and mother of three. I find that I am struggling more and more these days and not coping with things as well as I used to. I'm hoping this place will be helpful and I hope to find some like-minded moms/military wives.
I'm a bit hypervigilant and I'll even go as far to say paranoid. I'm a pretty strong woman, but There are some things I just don't want to know if I'm strong enough to handle. Knowing I have these vulnerabilities scares the crap out of me and I'm in near-constant fear of these things happening which really isn't helping anyone.
I'm hoping to get some faith in humanity restored I guess and hopefully make new friends. I'm a very social person, but I shelter myself and my kids inside because I'm just too scared something will happen under my watch. I think this behavior of mine is driving myself and others insane :(
Has anyone else dealt with this? Has anyone overcome it?
