 The Event

The military life, especially the military spouse’s experience is not fully understood or appreciated in the civilian world. Day to day life is significantly stressful. Dealing with most issues on their own while facing the ongoing prospect of a traumatic event, is both overwhelming and predictable - a part of a unique and shared understanding.

This stress is ongoing but can intensify during deployment. Issues include: managing all matters including finances and other life issues independently during long missions and deployments, building friendships during required and frequent base to base transfers, especially when one’s spouse needs to

move independently, anxieties associated with children, childbirth and infertility, and the possibility of taking on caretaker roles for partners who return with physical and/or psychological problems. Managing these major life events on your own is stressful, leaving little to no time for YOU.

These anxieties and stresses do not have to become chronic disorders. One cannot rush past the chaos and the pain of these situations, but instead learn to better recognize the valuable lessons that unfold in the process and build on one’s personal strength, resilience, and ability to endure, even grow as a direct result of these most difficult challenges.
