MATT PAPA-OPEN HANDS
My husband and I have been married for almost 4 years. We have a beautiful 13 month old son and our life seems to be falling apart.
My husband is in the military and has been since before we married. We moved here almost a year ago from the east coast and I still have not made any friends. All of our family is back east and I miss them so much.
Ever since we moved here my husband has become distant. He swears at our son and at me, he doesn't want to go to church, he refuses to spend time as a family and insists that our son and I should go out when he's home and do whatever so he can be alone.
I can't even get a part time job to help with the bills because I can't trust him to care for our child on the weekends or nights.
He refuses to go to counseling and says he doesn't have any problems, that I'm the mess up and that even though I sought help it's not helping and that I'm going nowhere in life.
He's never deployed and because of his job he won't for at least 3 more years.
I'm so alone, and depressed. This is way more difficult than I ever thought military life would be. I want to just give up most days and move home. He's put up a wall and I can't get through and with no one to talk to and no one to confide in or even have a relationship with my life is spiraling downward.
