Consider the following scenarios: Scenario 1: Im nervous for him to come home. Ive been calm for the last eight months. Ive had the house in order. When he comes home, its like he disrupts it. He leaves his clothes everywhere and expects me to wait on him. Hes coming home soon and I feel mixed up. I love him and want him home, but I cringe at the thought of how our life is going to change. To make matters worse, my neighbor whose wife deployed has been making passes at me. Ive ignored him but our kids play together and are in the same class and Bible class. Its hard to create the distance. Scenario 2 Ive never been a stay-at-home anything. But I got used to it. Shes been in the desert for two years now. I also manage the householdI cook, clean, and take care of our three kids. I learned how to braid my daughters hair, which was a feat. Taking care of three children is not easy. I can never watch football and Im burning cookies and cakes I have to make for birthday parties. And Im going crazy without sex. There are days I just want to lock myself in the bathroom. For this Discussion, select one of the two scenarios. While they may seem simplistic, they are very accurate and can produce a great deal of anxiety and stress on a daily basis. Keep in mind, not everyone is able to manage the military life effectively. As a helping professional, consider how you might assist these spouses in dealing with their stress and anxiety specific to military life. By Day 3 Post an identification of the scenario you selected. As a helping professional, explain how you might first approach this individual who is coming to you for support.
