My husband and I have just moved to townsville from Brisbane.
A little background info -
Hubby is in the army and this is our first posting, for the last year I have been living with my parents and brothers while he has been gone at basic training and initalial employment training. I lived with them prior to us getting married as well. Hubby was back 5 days in Brisbane last week for us to pack and move, and that was it, we are now in townsville just like that! I have known for a month that we would be moving here but it just seemed to happen so quickly. I knew when he signed up for the army this is what we were in for, my dad is also in the army. I just didn't anticipate how much I would actually miss my family. Especially since i have lived by myself when i was younger...although i didnt have a very good home relationship at that stage.
It is all new now living with my Dh after him being gone such a long time its like im relearning all his bad habbits and my pregnancy hormones arent making me very tolerable of thay lol.
The main thing i am missing right nowb is dad. My dad is my hero, he has done everything for me and he is the one man I have been able to rely on and trust all my life, but now the time has come where I must let go of that and let my hubby do it all which I know he can, I just don't know how to let go of the secruity I feel with my dad.
I have also had to leave behind my three pets, which were my babies, especial while we were struggling with infertility.
I just feel so empty and depressed, like nothing feels normal anymore and I now have to find my feet in this new place where I know no one. I am a very shy person and home body so I know how difficult it is going to be for me to get out there and make new friends.
I just can't stop thinking of home and everything that I usually do (e.g. just the simple things like having brekky with dad in the mornings or playing cards with my brothers and taking my dog for a walk )
I just want to feel happy again, especially for my babies sake, and stop being angry at DH cause I know this isn't his fault.
We have been here two days in a hotel and move into our new place next Wednesday.
Has anyone else been homesick before...how did u get through it?
Sorry for such a long rambling post just needed to get it off my chest.
