    Fears I Can't Express To Him...

    He leaves Monday for gunnery.  This will be my first experience with gunnery, and I'm nervous.  I'm scared.  I feel like I'm being overly clingy.  I've never been a clingy person, and have actually ended relationships because the other person would not give me my space.  So...

    Being Strong

    I have been in the Army for six years and I've done two 12month combat tours to Afganistan. I will be honest, they have taken their toll on me as my mind is not what it use to be. I find myself now distant and detached from regular people. The things they say and the things I...

    Sometimes I hate waiting for a phone call, I just wish I knew if he was able to call me or not instead of waiting every Sunday :(. I love hearing his voice, but I hate waiting by the phone since it seems like I do even though I try to keep busy. I really hope that when he goes to...

    Is This "normal"? He Literally Said I Did Nothing Wrong.

    So my boyfriend and I broke up. He said he doesn't want a relationship while he is in the military. That's at least 7 years. He has been in South Korea since March. I could completely understand him worrying about me hurting him or wanting to go out and do whatever with whoever...
