    I'm sorry that you felt the need to qualify that CG wives have struggles too. Of course they do. I hope it wasn't a military spouse who made you feel defensive.

    I will say that I don't feel lost when my SO is gone. That doesn't mean I don't love him as much as I can possibly love someone. I just keep calm and carry on. Being broken is not a good thing. It does not prove your love, you have to be able to function while he's gone. I also worry about you and your friend's desire to punch the Army and the Coast Guard, but don't really want to only because they brought your husbands to you. The Coast Guard does not exist as an entity to keep your husband away from you. It exists as an entity to protect the borders of the United States. It's one thing to get frustrated, but to have the enmity you seem to really worries me for you.

    I know you're going to think I'm being mean, but that text really worries me for you. I know a lot of new spouses feel the way you do, adapting is difficult at first, but you can adapt and overcome. You should not be in constant emotional pain like you are. 

    Please call Military One Source. I'm not 100% sure about the benefits for CG families, but it's worth a shot. I'm sure that if they can't provide your service, they'll tell you how to go about it. There's no shame in needing a little help adapting. None. 1(800) 342-9647.

    Good luck!

    ETA: You guys looked beautiful at your wedding!

    I don't know how to even touch this, so I will just say, good luck. Congrats on the marriage.

    I don't think it was inappropriate to post, it just made me worried for you is all. You can post whatever you want, you're always going to get responses of all kinds.

    I wasn't meaning anything bad. I just decided to leave it alone. Didn't want to come off sounding mean. I am sorry you took it that way.
