I'm new to this site and I thought it might help me cope. My boyfriend just recently decided to join the army. He gets sworn in on Monday. I'm a wreck. My brother was in the Marines, so I know how devastating this is going to be on me. If not worse.
Like I said, he gets sworn in Monday. And I feel terrible. I don't know if I'll be able to attend the ceremony because of my class schedule. I really want to be a part of this. I want to show him that I support him (even though it scares me)
He leaves for basic October 15. I know that's 6 months, 2 weeks, and 4 days away (yes, I've counted) but it seems like such a short time. Ever since he told me that he's joining, which was Monday, when we're together I just cling to him. He's my best friend. And I know it's just basic, but that's 11 weeks and 4 days.
I just don't know how to cope with all my feelings. I'm proud, scared, sad, happy that he's doing what he wants, angry. I'm just emotionally drained.
I know my thoughts are all over the place, but I just can't think straight.
