son on deployment

I'm a first time military mom with no experience in the military. My 19 yr old son is in Afghanistan this year and I'm hiding my emotions from everyone because talking makes it worse. No one around me understands but just asks how he's doing...I want to yell shut up! Anyone else going through this?

I am not personally but I know someone who is. She is the exact same way...people ask her how he is doing and she doesn't want to talk about it at all. She has said that talking about it makes all of her fears come to the surface.
She has told people to please not ask her those questions anymore and if there is news she will share it. People have respected her wishes and they leave her alone about it now.
I'm sorry for what you are going through, and a big thank you to your son for his service.
