    My husband left 2 months ago

    for deployment on the Iwo Jima, I'm feeling very lonely with him gone and am having a very hard time. I'm 20 years old and I just recently lost my mom to Breast Cancer so between these two things I feel very alone and unable to deal with day to day things. Any advice?
