Oh Nooooo...

This is an excellent experience title for me. Outwardly, I am an Army Wife, a secretary for my FRG; involved, caring, loving, and settled down. Inside, I'd rather be anywhere, and I mean ANYWHERE, else. It's not that I can't handle the Army life. Even my first deployment wasn't impossible. Early PT mornings aren't what gets me. Wrinkly class A's? Bring it on. It's just not ME. I chose this, and I will live it to the best of my abilities, but the man that made it worth it isn't there anymore. I don't know who came home from the war, but it's not the man I married. I am not a good Army Wife. I'd rather be off this post, working a job I'd get payed for, living in a nice place instead of this stupid little military-issued apartment. I'm tired of sacrificing everything for someone who doesn't notice. I seem like I'm happy about it, but I'm not. That's my "not who they think I am" story.
