Default I don't know why I feel so stupid asking for this.

My wife and I are dealing with our thrid deployment together. She has usually toughed them out no problem. This one is different. She is negative and depressed. I am a little over a month from the house and it seems to be getting worse. She gives of herself more than any woman I have ever known. She is an excellent mother. However, her morose mood and lack of passion for her own outlets troubles me. I would ask that you please send up a prayer for her well being. Not being home makes things difficult for me to deal with. Thank you, Matt

Prayers up. I've been in your shoes. Deployments do not get easier. Be patient with her. I was always the one that went away until recently when my youngest did a semester abroad, all of a sudden I was the one left at home to worry. The show was on the other foot now and I realized that I had not been as understanding as I should have been for the rest of my family. As someone posted above, try and have her talk to someone qualified to help. Hang in there brother

Prayers up for her and you Matt.

I come from a military family. My Ol' man was a lifer, 26 years. WWII, Korea, Vietnam. From observing my mother and other military wives who's husbands were deployed in combat zones, I can tell you that they are a special breed. There is no tougher female than one who is dedicated to her man overseas. What they must deal with emotionally and physically breaks many of them. Those that hold it together deserve their own hero status.

The way my mom dealt with it was to stay busy. Work, social clubs, organizations, hobbies, volunteer work, anything to keep going.

God bless them all.
