Wow What Am Impact!!!
I'm 22 years old and married my high school sweetheart of 7 years on August 9th 2007...He joined the navy in April 2007 and when he told me it broke my heart and flipped my world upside down. There was no discussion about it whatever so ever. He just did it. I thought I would be able to handle the change but I guess you don't really know what you're getting yourself into until it happens. Well I have a three year old son with my husband and it breaks my heart that he doesn't understand why daddy is on the boat and not with him. I quit my job of three years because we both had intentions of my son and I joining him at his final destination. I was told today by him that we wouldn't be able to go over there for at least a year. The next time I will see my husband will be at least a year and a half. My heart is crushed and I'm lost. This is the longest we have ever been apart since we moved in together 5 years ago. I don't know what to do or with myself. I've never went through this experience or know someone who has. It's all so scary for me. I don't talk to anyone on my side of the family although I've tried...it's helpless.. I do get along pretty well with his family. I have no friends whatsoever because I've had wrongful things done to me by them so it's hard to trust and open up. I live in his parents' house which makes my situation harder to deal with. I only dealt with this because i thought i would be with him soon. Since that's not going to happen anytime soon I'm scattered. Being in this house where he was born and raised in tears me up inside. It hurts but it's somewhat comforting because we had some really great moments in this house. I'm just looking for comfort and support from those of you who been there and know what it's like to be a navy wife
