Hello everyone! I'm new to this board, but I've been a lurker/occasional poster on these boards for years!
My DH and I have been together for 13 years, married over 7 now. We have a son, 4 years old. He decided last fall that he wanted to join the National Guard. He left 3 weeks ago and is currently at basic.
I'm an absolute mess on the inside. We were babies basically when we married! He's all I know! Thankfully I have a great support system with my family, but I feel so alone. I have a pain in my gut constantly. I have only gotten 2 phone calls: one the night he arrived and another on my son's birthday that lasted a total of 57 seconds.
Anyway, I don't have anyone around that understands. My co-workers just look at me with sad eyes and turn away when they notice me crying (they're not mean, they just don't know what to say). Hoping I can come here for some support and maybe answers to any questions!
