I'm really depressed....

Well,I just got of the phone with my husband.I was really excited about a plane ticket I found that was cheap and I could go see him in Germany from this Saturday until next Saturday.He didn't sound like he cared at all and just said, "Hold off on it, I have to find out from my company commander if its ok that you visit". I told him that the price may not be available tomarrow and I will get into Frankfurt on Saturday morning, which is fine seeing that he will be in Frankfurt this weekend with friends anyway and he can pick me up.He told me to back off and that I'm annoying him and that he has to go to work now, and pretty much ended the conversation right there.I don't know why he has to ask anyone if I can come.He told me that people have visitors all the time and he already asked an officer in his unit who said it was fine.I don't think he even wants to see me anymore.I don't know if I should even call him in the morning if he is that set on not seeing me anymore......

Hugs Brooke. I am sorry that the conversation wasnt more happy. I dont know your DH but I bet he is just stressed out. Hopefully he will be in a better mood tomorrow.

I am sorry that the conversation didn't go the way you had expected it. I hope that you did get to talk to him this am and that things are better.

Hello. I'm new to this tonight so I'm hoping I don't make a butt of myself. Well here goes...My husband does the same thing to me. Just the other day I wanted to go and see him but he said to hold off because he has to get permission from his CO. Of course I don't understand this one bit. Well I'm kinda at a loss of words now. I'm exactly sure what to say or how to say it. Like I said I'm new to this. My husband suggested that I try something like this to find other women who are in the same boat as I am at the moment. I'm hoping you will reply and I hope I didn't make a grave error. Of course if I did at least no one can see me...LOL Anyway, I to maybe here back or at least a get lost...lol Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope all goes well for you..Have a nice evening....

I'm so sorry the phone call didn't go as well as one would have wished. Hopefully this morning will be a different and better story.

Hugs to you,

I'm so sorry he acted that way. Hopefully you'll be able to talk with him soon and find out what's up. If it's any consolation - he very well may have some "work" stuff to do this weekend that he can't tell you about. Hopefully he'll be able to clear things up soon.

Hugs, Jill

Is there another piece to this that we're missing? Are you expecting to stay with him in the barracks? Maybe that's why he's telling you to back off. (You are not allowed to stay in the barracks.)

I'm sorry that he's treating you the way he is for no apparent reason. How were things before he left? How long have you been married?
