This post really resonated with me. It can be hard and frustrating to be a military spouse. Mentally and physically. You are not alone. Sourcing out support groups to help network and talk about how you’re feeling can make it a bit easier. Join the in-person or social media support groups at the base you’re stationed at, it helps to hear what others ask or talk about. Sometimes just knowing others feel what you feel can help the struggles seem a little easier and your burdens a little lighter.
