Lately I have been feeling so unfulfilled and I realized it’s because I basically don’t do anything! I stay at home and care for my daughter and I do it alone since my husband is deployed. I don’t have any issues with my family life. I love my daughter and husband more than anything and this isn’t the first deployment that I’ve dealt with. I just feel like there is so much more that I could be doing with my life right now. I’ll have to wait for him to come home next month and take me to the correct offices for the benefits I qualify for as a military spouse, why pay when you don’t have to? But I’ve made the decision to go to college!
My question is, how many mothers out there juggle being a mother and taking college courses? What stresses do you deal with and is it emotionally straining? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I plan on taking courses online so that way I’m still here with my daughter.
Thanks to all answerers!
And also just to add some more of my history, I worked a full time job when I was pregnant and I’ve been out of work for about 11 months.
