Ok, thanks. I understand the stresses of military life very very well. It is alot of stress on familys under the best of circumstances, let alone having a baby, and being BP also. YIKES
So what can you do right now? What is in your control that you can do to make the situation a little bit better. My road back from out of control mania and an almost destroyed marriage was started with a set of baby steps. Two years on now and we are still working on our marriage, but at least we are still working on the marriage and not divorced.
Now i cant imiagine what stress a pregnancy brings on, wiser minds on this board will have to chime in with some help. But i do know that i work best when i have a series of routines that help me live my life. One of the things i would suggest would maybe not having anymore kids (after this one) and just work on getting you stable, your relationship stable, and your family stable.
Its alot of work and self denile involved, but in the end i feel like i have gained way more than i have given up.
