Do I Really Have What It Takes?Let me start this off with a simple introduction.
Hello out there, I'm Shannay and I'm an Army Wife, clearly. I'm 20 years old and I've been married for a little over a month. I just moved from Florida to El Paso, Texas and it's definitely a change. I met my husband in middle school, we were more of acquaitances then friends back then. We ran into each other around Christmas time while he was home on leave and immediately clicked. We decided to give it a try dating, unfortunately we made that decision the day before he had to go back to Ft. Benning. I fell head over heels for him and when he said he wanted to marry me I jumped for it because I can't think of spending my life with anyone else.
Now that I'm here in El Paso I realize that I am a fish out of water. I have no idea how to be an "Army Wife". I'm having a hard time adjusting to life here. Ive been spending a lot of time in our duplex and it's starting to get to me being alone. I realize that this is something I'm gonna have to get used to quickly because at any moment the Army has the capability to take him whereever and whenever they want/need him. I feel selfish because as each day goes by it gets harder and harder to adjust. I'm not house wife material, I like to work and get out of the house. Its difficult with only one car and me not knowing my way around these parts.
I don't really know my purpose for writing any of this, I'm just hoping to talk to someone that might be able to understand and help me feel a little better.
