Hi my name is Lindsey and I am from Southern IL, I have been with my high school sweet heart for four years we have been married less than a year and now have a beautiful daughter. He has always wanted to joint he Navy, but his girlfriend before told him no, when he began asking me if I would be ok with it, I was thinking "ok, a new start for us, a new adventure" Well he went to St. Louis, and came home and told me he leaves for RTC on Dec 15th, so right before christmas, and our daughters first birthday. I was rather upset with that, but thought "ok, this is something he wants to do, I will be fine with it" Now that he has left I am realizing that I dont think I am strong enough to do this, I know that RTC and A-School is only four months and I know that I will have to be without him for a much longer wants we get stationed, but we have been together and have lived together for a long time and I am having a lot of trouble being on my own. He has only been gone for almost a week, but I now see how much of our everyday lives he was a part of. But I figure if we can get throught this then maybe it will make the times he is gone in the future easier, but it is rough. I am so glad I found a group of other wives going through the same thing, I think it will help. People keep asking me if I am ok, and I understand they are just trying tohelp but it only makes things harder on me, I know I have to be strong for our daughter and for him, but it is rough. Well thanks for listening to my sob story, and I hope to here back from some of you.
