Really hope your luck changes soon and you get posted out of there soon!
Sp's who say "let's not compare, dont judge, we don't know all the facts about one another etc" ....
Then follow it by "BUT... You have your partner." or "BUT.... you have the security of a relationship"
Well that's 'whoa me' judging disguised by attempts to make it look otherwise.
Ive honestly never been a single parent. Ive also never been a FIFO parent either. But I have been a Defence Force parent for over 11 years.
Its sad that we all judge before we just offer support.
I think there are so many people who are so "woe-is-me" and think that they are doing it tougher than everyone else.
I hate people like that and think it makes a mockery of those like yourself in a really tough emotional and physical situation.
I don't really have a point, just want to show my support for those doing it alone!
Are you with defence housing???
Can you speak to defense housing (I think it's Toll now?) and see if there's even a slightly better area you could go? Or if they can install some security measures?
When I was a newborn we were posted in puckapunyal and all of mum's family was in brisbane. Dad was away all the time and the house we lived in was condemned and knocked down after we left (posted to Townsville). As dad moved up the ranks we got better housing but it must have been horrid for mum during those early years!
