View Full Version : hubby may be leaving
my hubby may be going away in a cpl weeks for two months and im still pretty new to sydney and dont know many ppl in my area. im in the cherrybrook area if and mums out there would like to have a chat or suggest support groups in the area it will be greatly appreciated. i have a little boy he is nearly one.
I had a look on the map, wow you're a fair way out luv. The nearest DCO is at Richmond or Liverpool .. so there wouldn't be a community house anywhere near you I'd say within defence community. I cannont imagine the traffic in the morning for your DH getting to work whether he's on your side of the bridge or the other.
I've known some defence families in the past who have lived at Castle Hill .. but honestly don't know of anyone there at the moment.
I think you'll have to be like me and scout the forums and facebook for folk in your area.
At least you know you've got a bunch of friends online to vent to. In ADP which I think you joined, there's a deployment support forum which will be helpful when the time comes.
If I come across anyone who lives your way I'll try and connect you up. :)
Thank you for your help. i will keep searching but i have had no luck so far but i wont give up.
I've had to do my own leg work to find friends too .. ie baby forums and defence msg boards .. I've gone to our first playgroup session at the community house .. so that's a start but it's hard cos DCO don't/won't/can't help.
Hi there kirrabennett.
I have no idea where cherrybrook is - but am happy to meet half way :) I am in Coogee and my husband is in the navy. He is about to go away for 6 weeks, and then will be home just for weekends til the end of July. Gotta love defence life huh? I have a 10 month old who would LOVE to play with your son :)
hey i dont know where coogee is either. i would like to meet in the middle if it isnt to far as a dont have a license i must walk or catch public transport.
It is Jodie frm next door. :laughing:
I have sent you a PM
I know exactly how u feel!!
My hubby is in the RAAF - Glenbrook..
He is going to Sale, Vic for 4 months of training in June!
Im still new to NSW aswell... having moved from Melb...
Its a bit scary to think we'll be left on our own huh!
Well i checked where u are, ur only 40 mins from me!
Pink Lady u are 53 mins from me!!
According to Whereis.com!
Im in Glenmore Park!
If u girls organise a meet, i would love to come too?
hers my email..firstname.lastname@example.org
A meet sounds great!
How is early next month? week or weekend suit best?
U meaning May?
Thats ages away lol!!
I just looked at the calendar - i never know what date it is!
I think weekday is best for me!
We could arrange a half way point for u & me, and close to Kirra so she doesnt have to travel far... if she wants to come!
i would love to come just name a place and ill see if it is close or i could catch a train.
defence have changed their minds he isnt going for two months now he leaves on the 5th of may for two weeks down to cerebus.
I'm new to this site and new at being an Army partner...
My BF has been away since January and will be home in June..
Have any of you ladies experienced your partner being injured while deployed??
no sorry missarmygirlfriend my hubby hasnt been deployed yet but no one i know has ever been injured on deployment.
I haven't had my DH be 'deployed' as such but it's a guarantee he'll be injured while away. If it's not ingrown toenail, it's a variant of flu that puts him in hospital for days, and had many internal bits removed.
My good friend in Darwin did have her man injured while away. It made the news last year. One guy came home but he stayed. He's that type of dedicated soldier and even if told to go home, he would have fought it I think. He's still keen on going again. After all, they train for this and it's a big buzz for some.
If you worry about this sort of thing, it'll do your head in and you'll end up miserable so you have to just look at him being 'away with work'.
I agree KJEmum when DH was in E T i tried not to think of it as that just he was out high range...or something...when he came home with photos of the guys on patrol etc i was for some reason shocked to see them with weapons as i had never thought of them like that...and still try not too.
Anyway They train and thats what they love so at the end of the day i accept it, i dont look forward to his next deployment as we have 2 kids now but what ever happens as long as he returns xxx
