It's lonely being a Navy wife sometimes

Hubby has been gone for almost 2 months now. I really miss him and feel very lonely right now. In the past, when he was deployed, I would get together with the other wives. This time is so different as he isn't deployed, I just live in a different country right now. I am bad at making friends. I have friends, but not the kind I hang out with on a regular basis, you know? I really need that right now, but my really good friends live too far away. It's Friday night and I just wish I had someone to hang out with, drink some coffee, watch some movies, whatever. I guess I am just in a state of self pity. I have been so emotional lately, I just want to cry at everything. Yesterday I gave my notice at work. It is still a few months away, but they need to be able to find a good replacement. It was so hard to do. I walked into my supervisor's office, gave her the letter, and then had to rush out because I was about to start sobbing. I have never had this hard of a time leaving a job, and I have left quite a few. I love where I work, and the people I work with are awesome. We find something to laugh about everyday, and that is so important. It is required for good health to laugh I think. Without laughter, where is the joy and happiness in life? Maybe we will come back here and I can work for them again. My boss called me in his office to tell me how sad he is to see me go and that if I come back they will welcome me back there. That is nice to hear. I guess I should stop this pity party and be grateful for a good experience.

  1. Don't feel sorry for being so emotional. I feel so bad that you have to go through this separation from hubby. Feeling lonely sucks! I know that I might have my husband home every night with me, but when we're going through stressful times (which is more often than not), we tend to drift off into our own little worlds to deal with it and we can't connect and bridge the gap. I think that can be lonelier than physically missing someone. Easy for me to say because he's not in Japan!!!

    Just don't forget your GTBS girlies when you need an ear!
