Hi Melody! Welcome to the board! You're definitely not alone, although I admit that it does feel that way sometimes. My hubby is in the Navy and on a very small ship so unlike a lot of wives, we don't have any FRG meetings or ship get togethers and most of the guys are single so I know what lonely feels like. We also don't live on base so I spent most of last year's deployment waiting by the phone for him to call for actual adult contact. LOL

Anyway, you're not alone, we're all with you. :)

Hi Melody! I'm Stacey and my DH is Rob. He's active duty Army at the moment, but in the process of ETS'ing. He's going to go into the reserves to finish out his career.

You definitely are not alone. Sometimes it is hard to feel like you aren't though, especially if you don't have a lot of other people near by that are in the same situation. The ladies here are wonderful and have been through a lot with all their experiences. :)

Melody, my DH (darling husband) is in the Navy too, named Jason, and I'm new to this as well! ;) Sounds like we have a lot in common! We have 3 children from my previous marriage and trying to conceive our 4th, his 1st, before he deploys for the 2nd time in a couple months. He just returned only 6 months ago so I'm really not looking forward to yet another deployment and really wondering if it's going to be easier or harder now that I know what its like. The ship he's on, is super small with a crew of only 28. There were only a handful of wives last deployment and I made a huge effort to meet them and it did NOT go well to say the least. I was unwelcomed to start off with, looked down upon and the amount of gossip and backstabbing was sickening. Ugh! So, DH and I decided to stay completely away from all of it. I'm even skipping this pre-deployment brief, so with all that said, it's extremely lonely at times. You're not alone at all. It's so hard and though I haven't found anyone in my area to talk to or relate with, the message boards on iVilliage in general are really helpful.

Hi Melody,

I haven't been on the board in awhile but I was lurking and saw your post and thought I'd say hi.

Quick Hijack ;) Hi ktqt07! I'm in VA too! Great point about the gym. That's a great place to meet other women. I plan to utilize my YMCA membership for that reason this summer while he's gone.
