Hi all, I'm new to this forum business, but I needed to see if I am the only one to have this trouble. My husband is in the military, we have 2 young children and our own house away from base which I run daily. He deploys in August for 7 months and is currently on 3 week pre-deployment leave. He has shocking mood swings, is lazy with the children , and at times is pretty horrid to me. I call it pre-deployment blues, but does anyone else suffer this kind f behaviour? I get very angry about it but not sure whether its a natural thing to make him leaving easier? HELP!!
