    So Glad To Have Found This Group...

    Wow! This is definitely the kind of group I've been looking for.  A little about me:  I'm 23 years old.  Met my sailor in early November and quickly fell for him.  He was very up front with me about his job and that he would be deploying soon, which I...

    Don't get me wrong, it's hard. Harder than I ever thought possible but Im making it through.. I's been 2 1/2 months since I had to drop him off at the airport and go about my day at work trying not to cry all over my patients. I try to remind myself that I was lucky to spend...

    I Just Wish This Wasn't Happening.

    I never thought I could miss someone so much. Jared got to call me today and all I could do was cry. I hate myself for not staying strong for him. He deserves someone who will keep him happy. All I can do is cry. I miss him so much, but I feel so guilty for being sad. He's the...
