105.Living with a Disability and deciding not to post with her Husband

In this week's podcast episode, I talk to Air Force Spouse Donna about Defence life, living with a Disability and deciding not to post with her Husband.


Donna and I also talk about;

  • Meeting each other, buying a house within 6 months and moving in together
  • Being legally blind and recognised as a dependent with special needs
  • The extra challenges Donna needs to consider when it comes to being legally blind and moving
  • How Donna learnt to enjoy her own company early on in their relationship
  • Why having an understanding employer when it comes to defence life and having a disability has made all the difference
  • Deciding MWDU and not posting with the defence member will work best for their family
  • Why being able to continue her career and have a family support network close is just as important as her defence member’s career
  • The sacrifices Donna would have to make if she did post with her defence member and why MWDU is the best choice at the moment
  • Why having the ability and choice to change her mind about being MWDU gives Donna comfort
  • The difficulty and overwhelm in accessing support and services via defence organisations and the happy balance Donna has now found
  • How COVID restrictions and lockdowns have had a positive impact on her family with regards to postings and staying together as a family
  • Why going with the flow as a spouse is a good thing but not necessarily easy when you are a planner
