Reading that made me just want to hug you because mostly everything you just wrote I have felt the past several weeks! My husband is military too and the worse times are when he isn't home to be my "buffer" between my depression and the kids ...I believe my worse problem is that I make myself so terrified about how overwhelming it's going to be when he's not here that it ends up making it twice as hard to deal with ... your mind is a powerful weapon and too often I find we use it against ourselves!

If it were me I would talk to my command about how you're feeling. They may have resources or outreaches that will be able to help you while your husband is gone or help you better deal with how you're feeling before he leaves .. ( Our command actually has post partum depression support groups and they are awesome... )

Do you have a close friend or family close by that can help you out when you feel down and overwhelmed? If so don't hesitate to call them.. everyone needs help sometimes!

I really hope you start feeling better and if you ever want to talk I'm here!
