Back to the SDMB


My first SDMB thread in quite some time. It's interesting with this on my mind that of course it first goes in my LJ, but I go back to the Dope for feedback and commisseration as well. I guess I'm not as distanced from it as I thought I was, and I guess that's a good thing.

I will admit, however, that right before I hit the post button I was trying to figure out where the mood drop down was... ;)

Thanks for posting the link here; I don't tend to follow MPSIMS. You're the third military spouse among folks I know. . .

Since I'm already writing here, I'll respond a bit to the actual post. :} Having people around that you can lean on and get support from is a big deal (this is something that's been pounded into my head by my friend who's got a Marine partner over there, that I'm actually doing something useful by listening and stuff). If your experience is like hers, you'll probably wind up picking up a sort of code of what's going on from what Q isn't able to talk with you about. Finding out what you have to do to get regular phone calls is worth the effort, especially on days when someone got hurt and the news isn't saying who (or even if they are, just to be sure).

I know how hard it's been to deal with just being second-tier support; I can't imagine how rough it is for you guys who have loved ones over there. I wish you the strength you'll need to handle it and more strength than that, and I'll keep Q in my hopes and prayers for safety.

It's cool that that Navy wife posted a nice comment...

Like I posted over there, though, I wonder how much of the advice she gave can actually be taken advantage of by the partner of a gay serviceman without getting said serviceman in "don't ask, don't tell" trouble.
