Just need to vent!!!!

My hubby has been gone for 3 months now.  He is missing Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.  They just extended his deployment so our babymoon is now cancelled.  The people I live have been so unsupportive of DH being gone.  My friend told me to get over and I knew this when he signed up.  Easy for her to say as she spends every weekend with her hubby and all the holidays.  Yes we knew this when he signed up but some days are really hard. SInce we have not lived together for almost 2 years I did think this deployment would not be this hard. (this was our fist deployment) However, some days are just rough!!!  I guess no one knows what you are going through till they have done it themselves.

The other thing my friend did that hurt my feelings was tell DH he calls to much.  DH gets to call everyday and sometimes twice a day.  We also get to Skype everyday since he works nights.  DH called a second time and my friend  grabbed my phone and told DH that I had other things to do besides talk to him.  DH gets so excited everytime we get to talk.  Sometimes he calls when it is not a good time but I stop everything and talk to him for his alloted 10 mins. I know he needs to know what is going on to not feel like he is missing things.  I get it!

 I was not sure how to respond to my friend other than just be upset!  Anyway, just needed to vent and I knew you girls would listen.

Re: Just need to vent!!!!

  • It sounds like you need to find a new friend. What a b*tch.

    I'm sorry that you're having a hard time. It's tough. I know how you feel.

  • Your friend sounds like a biitch. That chick would get dismissed if she was in my life. How rude.

    Sorry I can't be more supportive but that really irked me that she grabbed the phone out of your hand.

    Winning ain't easy
  • I would've kicked my friend to the curb if she ever had the audacity to even suggest when I can and can't talk to MH.  Snip.Snip.Snip
  • Seriously, get a new "friend". She's crap.

    I'm sorry that this has been so rough, but how wonderful that you get to talk to him so much. Can you plan something else for when he gets back instead of your babymoon? A night or two at a hotel nearby with some spa treatments?

    What do you do to keep yourself busy otherwise?

  • I agree with everyone else.  That was pretty ballsy to grab the phone from you.
  • I would have punched her in her fat throat if she grabbed the phone AND told my H that. Holy crap.

    Block her phone number and unfriend her from your fb. What a bitter biitch. You do NOT need anyone like that. The naysayers will always be there... but this psycho has gone to a whole new level of crazy with that mess.

  • The problem is that I live with her and her husband until January 3rd.  Somedays I think living here is worse than DH being deployed!!!  Well I am glad to see that I am not the crazy one.  I was really thinking I was crazy for felling sorry for myself some days and talking to DH.  Talking to him everyday makes me feel so much better.  It is nice to know that he is okay!

    omg. You have to LIVE with her?

    Dear Jesus. Next time she says something, you HAVE to tell her, in so many words, to shove it up her azz. Seriously. She can not go around thinking that is okay to do, to anyone. Ever. On any planet. 

    omg.

  • You need to kick your friend in the teeth and move on.  WTH gives her the right to tell your H he calls too much?  You don't need a friend like that.
