    for 5 months. He deployed last week and will be gone until October. I'm very upset everyday and have been trying to stay busy but when I have any amount of time to myself I feel myself slipping into a depression. We have very minimal contact right now & it's really bothering me...

    Out Of Sight But Never Out Of Mind

    I got an email today, a one liner that said he finally got to his base in the middle east. I haven't seen him in almost three weeks now and getting to talk to him is rare. Before he left he gave me his dog tags to wear, I seriously haven't taken them off. I've had two formal...

    I'm starting to question my relationship,

    I find myself being resentful of him leaving the way he did, and not saying I love you to me when he left. I'm really scared, confused, angry, upset. I'm scared he's gonna come home and be just as emotionless and unconnected as he was when he left. What do I do? How do I handle...

    Missing him a lot tonight,

    just read a chapter in my book about a wife who sent her husband gummy bears in all of his care packages because of an inside joke between them. I sent him away with 2, 1lb bags of gummy bears, makes my heart ache wondering if he's eaten them all yet. I hope he's doing well, I...

    I'm Terrified But I'm Taking The Risk Anyways.

    kI have always had this image in my head of who I wanted to be with. Jock, blond hair, green eyes, and without a doubt no cops, firefighters, or military men. I didn't want to risk losing anyone. Yet here I am and my boyfriend is in the air force, a dork, red hair, brown eyes...

    So my bf was deployed on Thursday,

    I had spent a rediculous amount of time making him "open when" letters since he had told me we wouldn't be able to talk while he was away. I went to his house last night to pick something up and check on his mom. When I was leaving his room I saw that all of the letters were...

    So with him being away,

    I'm starting to really question a lot of things. Idk why but I keep wondering if he's lied to me about different things, and whether or not he's ever cared. Is this weird? I'm not sure why I keep thinking these things, but I keep trying to make him out to be a bad guy in my head...

    It's been hard. Harder

    than I thought. I have even started having doubts but have to remind myself that it's because he's been gone for awhile and I have barely been able to talk to him. I send him stuff to let him know that im thinking about him and that I care but sometimes I feel like it's not good...

    I didn't hear from him in 10 weeks.

    He got his deployment orders on such a short notice that we just had a few days to get used to it that he is leaving. We still talked while he was in training before he finally needed to leave for the Middle East but since then I didn't hear anything from him. I'm sure he is...
