New Army Wife. Feeling Lonely. Any Advice??

Hi my name is Karen I just turned 22 and also just got married in January. My husband just join the army and is currently in bct. Am still very new at this and it seems all I do is load my brain with information about being a army wife. He's been gone for over a month now, missed my birthday, our sons birthday is almost here too, not to mention am away from all my friends and family! Am originally from Chicago and moved to New York to be with him. When he was here with me I was okay but now I get lonely. I try and do my best to stay strong but sometimes I let it get the best of me. For example I don't wanna be a distraction to my husband while he's away so I act stRong when I talk to him when he calls. But the last time he called I couldn't hadle it and broke down =( I feel bad cuz I heard it in his voice that He felt bad. I gathered my emotions And told him am okay ( which I wasn't). I guess I just need to learn how to deal with this new role of not only wife but army wife in my life. So please feel free to give me any advice.

Thanks. I just recently found this website and am glad I did. Am always the one to be strong and cope with whatever situation am in but lately I just don't seem to have control of my emotions.
