My husband has been deployed for 7 months and he's coming home soon. Really really soon.
I love him so much, but throughout this deployment, we have hit snags that I didn't plan on having to deal with.
We are dual military. I'm an officer, he's enlisted. We got married in January of this year and he left at the end of February for Afghanistan. I moved to a new state to be closer to him, transferred jobs, units, and essentially lost my whole support network. I went from West Virginia to Hawaii.
The beginning of the deployment was hard (as I expected), the middle got easier because we emailed everyday and we kept the attraction going via less-than-appropriate emails and whatnot, but the last couple of months have been a mild torture. That ALL he has wanted to talk about. I've been having a rough time with my new unit, working, being alone, dealing with his parents (whole other story involving ID theft and maxed out credit cards). Instead of helping me deal with real world issues and giving me a minor amount of emotional support, he stopped calling me, and the only emails I got were begging for dirty stories, pictures, or acts.
I am very tactful, but
