Their drive and passion in their work is part of the reason you fell in love. Knowing the good they are making in this world can fill you with pride. As a partner or loved one, you know it is hard for your responder, but you can’t help feeling overlooked, disconnected, and frustrated. Missed holidays and anniversaries. Cancelled date nights. Others always asking where your partner is. It is exhausting going through life while loving the person behind the uniform. When trying to find support, it can be hard finding people who understand the culture of the first responder and military life. Watching your loved one go through mood issues, anger, depression, knowing they have seen traumatic things they would never burden you with, and the hypervigilance that comes with the territory, it weighs down on you. You want so badly to be there for your partner, but you don’t know how when you struggle, too. You push on through because “it’s all part of the job”. Except, you know it doesn’t have to be this way. Yes, the job is tough. Yes, the demands are exhausting. No, you can’t imagine doing anything else.
