New and Overwhelmed

I have been with my husband for 8 years. We were high school sweethearts and pretty much haven't left each others side. We've been married for 3 months and he's been in Baghdad for 2. This is his first tour and my first time being on my own in a big house. It's a bit overwhelming and at times I feel like I can't do it...but i'm trying to stay strong for him. I would like to hear from others that are going through the same thing...anyone have some tips for the newbie?

Well here are some tips that help me:<br />
Stay as busy as you can!!!<br />
Make goals and try to cmoplete them before he gets home<br />
Exercise really helps me and I hate exercise!<br />
Talk on here the girls have great advise!<br />

Stay Strong Hunny you will make it through!

Patients and strength is what will get YOU and your Hubby through this! You have to have the strength to get up every morning, and go about the day, and be able to get into that bed at ngiht and ACTUALLY get sleep!<br />
It's not easy, I don't think there is a lady here that will disagree with that! But it will make you stronger! Reaching out to support groups and talking to others that UNDERSTAND is a tremendous help too!<br />
