    I feel for you not only to have your husband gone so much but moving from all you know as well.
    My husband way back in 1994 and 95 worked in China, 3 weeks there 1 week home each month. I was PG at the time with our 3rd and last child.
    (who is 10 years younger then our middle girl) I hated him being gone like that, it actually hurt our marriage which we are still finding pieces to. We love each other and that is the glue that held us together. I was no use to him gone like that at all which did not help.
    But I have always lived in Oregon, never anywhere else and not far from most of my family. I would say most are just a couple hours or so away.
    But when we moved to this small town from a large one over 20 years ago I hated it here. I did not know anyone here, all I knew were just an hour or two away, but with kids we don't always make journeys of such do we. I started getting depressed and so lonely. Eating was a big out for me too and I love food and cooking. More back then rather then now. I started getting involved with girl scouts and volunteering at the school. I had my husbands father here in the beginning that I cared for as well. (he was a sick man, hospital visits and Doc, every week which was a couple hour drive each way.) But if I had not started working and doing the volunteer working I think I would have gone nuts! I started working in our yard too which was quite ugly at the time, nothing there! So I delved myself into it. The combination helped me find a life again, me again in many ways as I was loosing myself.
    I can see where this sight would have been a big blessing to me back then if it had been around. I would have had people to converse with and something to get me focusing on me! Getting active and motivated doing something for the self in a positive way.
    I do hope your feeling more involved with yourself and using that treadmill.
    I am on my elliptical a few times a week now besides the work outs and my work which is quite physical. Feeling really good and am so much happier with me. I am a happy person, not that I don't have my down depressed days like everyone else, but my mood is more consistent.
    I Love life and am so blessed to be here still. It is a great day when one wakes up and are still breathing, taking in the air and knowing your alive.
    Being healthier brings that feeling on even more.
    Are you working there? Finding something to get you out meeting people?
    You need friends, on here is great, but you need people you can go do something with now and then. Do so hope you find someone you can connect with.
    I have yakked long enough, hope I didn't go to long on you here! :)
    Wishing you the best and hope you have a Happy Easter!!
    Blessings from Hot Nana or you can just call me Nancy! :)
