    I feel lost

    0
    My boyfriend is a deputy that works nights and I work days. It's really tough coming home every night to cook and eat dinner alone, go to sleep alone and so many other things. I have terrible nightmares about his line of work and it's all very difficult. I don't want to put the stress in him because I know he deals with a lot on a daily basis and I am supposed to be his rock and support system...

    New here.  My husband just got promoted to Srgt., and his schedule changed from flexible M-F to rotating overnights. It has been really hard on everyone.  He doesn't know when to eat, sleep, exercise, or spend time with family.  I know he is doing his best, but I'm overwhelmed from picking up all of the extra slack with two young children (ages 1 & 2.5yrs) at home. Any advice from moms of...

    Hi I'm a "future" police wife. My boyfriend wants to be a cop. He is in the process of joining an academy however, he is also applying to be a teacher. We've been together 4 years and I am trying to be supportive but I don't want the police job to work out. I don't mean to be selfish but even the application process has been tough. Its been much easier for him to be a teacher and safer....

    Hi :) Im new to all this but thought joining a group of women who understand the realities of being married to a police officer might help me! My hubby has not long been accepted into the polcie force and even though i knew he would be one since the day I met him the reality of the life has only just hit me. I am used to the idea of his shifts and overtime and attending family gatherings alone...

    Hello all, I'm a police officer's wife. We have been married for almost two years, which happens to be the same time he has been a police officer. I'm still adjusting. It still very hard at times. I am hoping to find encouragement and strength here, especially those days I can't find it within myself.

    I'm new to all of this and not one to ask for advice. I don't know any LEO wives or girlfriends, and none of my friends really know what I go through on a daily basis. I have been with my boyfriend for 2 years and he's been a police officer for a little over a year. I am still Adjusting to he fact that he works nights at the most dangerous town in our county. Advice to calm the nerves? TIA

So our story is just a tad different. But not likely by much...Anyway. This week has been rough. really rough. Until the shooting in...
