I think being sick when they are away id the absolute worst - this is when i really, really struggle. It is just exhausting in so many ways.
I have morning sickness, which is hard, but at least my kids have been healthy. I know once Kindy starts back up DD1 will be bringing home plenty of bugs though *sigh*
And i still have around 90 days until DH comes home
It is nice to talk to other people in similar positions, it helps to know i'm not the only one doing this.
