Military mama/wife

Sometimes being a military mom/wife is so difficult especially whenever my husband has duty(has to spend the night on the ship). I’m a first time mom and a student and lately I’ve been struggling with PPD on top of that. Whenever he has to spend the night on the ship I try to stay distracted and busy (pretty easy to stay busy with a newborn lol) so the day goes by faster. But I usually end up feeling stuck in the house and miss my husband. It’s also tough for me to fall asleep without him home. I just wish I had family on the same island as me to have a closer support system. Idk how other military moms do it but I am having a hard time especially being a SAHM.😪

I am a military spouse and I am no where near a base/ fort and mine is deployed for another 5 months... I understand you! Always looking for military friends!

I feel you! I don’t live on base either but hoping we move into a house on base soon once our lease is up so I can at least be surrounded by other moms that know what I am going through

If you ever need to talk to someone you can message me. My husband and I both were in the Navy and he was deployed when I had my little one so I can try and give you pointers to help or even just an ear to listen

Definitely understand my husband is in Virginia and I’m in New York with the kids and it is definitely hard and emotionally draining. Hang in there

I'm going through that now. The military moved us out here so my husband could teach at the bootcamp and he is back in VA right now at school and I'm 7 months pregnant and on bed rest and a first time mom. So it's hard, especially since I can't exactly stay busy. But you will get through it I promise. Not having family I get try and make some friends with other spouses they become like your family
