There is a reason why zoloft is often jokingly refered to as the military wife vit. It might be helpful to contact the Army Community Services in particular family advocacy, about
finding help for watching your child (because there is nothing wrong with getting a break from child care responbilities) and getting some services for yourself. There is also new parent support programs that go up to the age of three.
Do you work outside the home? The only reason I ask is I would like to know your anchor points are to where you are located. Are you near your family? Would it be helpful to go stay with them during this point in time?
You can also check online for marriedtothearmy.com and armywifenetwork.com, also military.com has some resources.
I can understand if you do not want to go into the military behavior health stuff, but there is an online portal on your local post's website if you would like to do it. Do not be discouraged by the 3-6 month wait time. But if nothing else you can talk with the Chap's office and that is very private, even if you are not of the faith of the person you are talking with. Sometimes they can even advocate for you to see a specialist earilier.
There are usually also outside support community resources.
Another thing as you spoke about blurry memories (you have to think of memories in context) I would suggest is that you might want to send your husband those books that record from hallmark. Or if you can get a small recorder and send some children's books (if money is an issue you can usually pick these up for about a dollar or two at used book stores) for him to read to your daughter. Video might be helpful, but it is more expensive.
I know what it is to go six months without speaking to your significant other as a dual service couple (I was Navy, he was Army). There is help out there and you are not alone.
If 417 refering to lost in the woods, let me know I might know some points of contact for you (if they are still there, I need to facebook them to see if they are still there). I am also on massive amounts of morphine right now, so there might be a time delay.
