This emotional diplomatic life
This chart came from DiploLife, a wonderful blog written by another foreign service spouse (which may be primarily responsible for our interest in India). Being a therapist, I find this intellectually intriguing. Being someone who is currently experiencing the pre-departure ups and downs, I'm glad to see that this emotional roller coaster eventually levels out, and am looking forward to the honeymoon.
I'm aslo looking forward to living in Falls Church with the other new foreign service families. The diplomatic community appears to be very supportive, and most people who are interested in this life seem to share the characteristics of friendliness and flexibility. It's encouraging to know that we're all in this together.
