Never Thought It Would Be This Hard

Hi my name is Amber and I am 22. I am new here and have a husband who is in Iraq. We have been togeather for 5 year and I never thought it would be this hard having him gone. Me and him have been through a lot and I think that we both thought this would be a lot easier than it is. I am a very active person, but it really is hard to not worry about him. I joined here to see if I could meet people who are going through the same things I am. It is hard to try and talk to other people because they really dont know how I am feeling. I know that I am lucky to be with him. He is great and he tells me all the time that hes the lucky one. I just want to meet more people that are in the same situation.

I am with you girl. MM (my marine) has been gone for 2 months and has 5 to go. It is hard sleeping with the telephone every night, praying for that 4am phone call even if he can only talk for a few minutes. I totally get what you are saying about nobody understanding. I just laugh when friends complain about their boyfriends not doing this or not doing that. It's like SHUT UP!!! At least he HERE!! This site is great, lots of supportive ladies. Please let me know if you need anything and I will let you know too. <br />

I know one thing that helps me feel like I am helping him is to come up with new care package ideas. I have so much fun putting them together for him.<br />

Hang in there, it will be done before you know it.
