There's nothing wrong with you. As my dh's departure nears, I've noticed that I have my moments. The other night I went through all of the emotions you described in a matter of ten minutes! LOL.

The key though, which you already know, is to keep your cool. To know that you're bitter, that it can't be helped, but to FAKE A GOOD MOOD! LOL, put all your energy into swallowing the bad mood when DH is around. If you don't, you'll regret it after he leaves.

I'm not telling you anything you don't already know though.

No problem honey. We just want to keep ourselves and our DHs safe. It's good to be proud, and you can still be proud and express your support, just practice OPSEC, while you're at it.

And, as far as I can tell, from personal experience and listening to others, your multitude of emotions is pretty normal. Now that you've *vented*...heehee, get yourself together, and spend quality time with DH before he leaves! You don't want to regret any angry words, or hasty mean actions while he's gone, believe you me!

Absolutely nothing is wrong with you. What you are feeling are all normal reactions to abnormal circumstances. Let your husband know how you feel but also remember he is leaving to do his job that he has trained to do. There is nothing that will keep him with you no matter how much you fight it or hate it. Make the most of your last few days, these are the moments and memories you are going to need to hold onto while he is gone.
