    What if he's found another girl ?

    What if he doesn't want me anymore ? I hate how my mind wanders when we don't speak

    I miss my Infantry man

    so much!! I always feel like I'm gonna cry. We're newly weds, and not even a month later the guy gets deployed. I can hardly stand it! It's so hard to sleep these days, and I have no one to talk to who gets it. Does anyone else feel this way?

    I knew I was in love with him long

    before I told him. I was avoiding it mostly and the rest of me was too afraid to scare him off. It was at least a month before I told him. It's so scary to think that when/if he deploys I could lose him. On the other side if that, that realization makes me love him that much...
