My Husband Is Deploying In Two Weeks and I Feel Like My Whole World Is Crashing Down On Me!

I have been married for about six months now. i have a two year old son and am currently pregnant. My husband is due to deploy to Iraq in a couple of weeks now and I have no support system. I dont know very many other army wives and the ones i do are leaving during he deployment to go back home. I am from around here so I have nowhere to go. I dont come from a large family and the ones that are near arent around much. I only have my husband. I have some friends but being that I'm a young married mother most of them cannot relate. I feel so alone and empty right now. My husband seems to deal with it alot better, i just don't know what I'm gonna do with myself. I am supposed to be going back to college again this semester but I still have to find a babysitter or that is not a possibility either. My husbands parents were supposed to be coming down here to help while he is deployed but with those plans suddenly changed im running out of options and hope. My husband is my world he is my best friend and i have no idea how i am going to be able to manage without him here with me. I would love to find other ppl in similar situations dealing with deployment so that I can have someone to talk to. Please email me if you would like to talk.

your not alone hun,I'm going through the same thing hubby is about to deploy soon also so I understand how you my opinion being an army wife is one of the hardest jobs out there. just try to take things day by day, and try not to get to overwhelmed by everything. while hes gone,try to skype as often as you can,being able to see his face while you talk will make things a lot easier.but while you talk,try not to burden him with whats going on at home,try to be positive on the phone.try to stay busy while hes gone,it will make the time go by faster. where are you stationed at? I'm always here if you need someone to talk to,us army wives gotta stick together (:

Where are you stationed? My husband will be deploying soon also. Feel free to message me at anytime.
