- Wedding: May 2011
In a few days I’ll be redeploying back home! I’m so excited! Now that I’m here and I can look back I can say that these 6mths really flew by.
Although I’m super excited to get home, spend time with Fiance and jump back in to wedding planning, I think I’m having anxiety of how things will be when I get home. I’ve been going at 100mph during the last 6mths. I work 14-16hr days, 7 days a week, my work is very stressful and I always have to be on. I carry a pistol attached to my hip. I feel like I’m about to go from 100mph to 0.
I’m also taking 3 mths off when I get back. I was diagnosed with cancer 4 years ago, and I’m only now on my, what I hope, is my 2nd check-up scan. So I’ll do that right away and take a month off to get treatment. A few weeks for the wedding, and 3 weeks for the honeymoon.
Fiance has also had the run of the apartment while I’ve been gone, and I’m sure he’s made some changes, just like I did when he was deployed. But in the back of my mind, that place has always been *mine*.
I’ve also made really close friends out here especially when we’re together 24/7. I wonder how he’d be receptive to that especially since, being in my field, the major of those new friends are male.
I guess my question is, any advice for how handle redeployment and reintergration back into my life back in the States? I need some reissurance that things will work themseslves out.
