    I Already Miss Him

    Me and my boyfriend have been dating for 7 months. A good friend thought we would be perfect for each other and she was right. We laugh all the time. Sure we have our up and downs, but its worth it in the end... His deployment is for 6 months. He doesn't even know where he is...

    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...

    Well he finally left.

    .. 9 months. It feels really weird. It doesn't feel real, plus we didn't leave on the best of terms

    I Know That I Can/will Make It Through

    It's not going to be easy, but I believe with all of my heart it'll be worth it in the end. My bf leaves for deployment in about 2 weeks and I'm nervous. As the time gets closer, emotionally I've begun to get more anxious. I've spoken with my big sister and she has been giving me...

    Doing Better Than I Ever Thought

    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...

    Some Days Seem Longer Than Others

    I never thought I would ever be capable of being on my own without my other half by my side. But I have for a year now. I know we have had our ups and downs and a brief split but we have made it so far. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel on most days. Four years and no...

    As I'm Getting Ready To Drive Away From The Flight Line He Says "if You Can't Stop Crying, Please Pull Over".

    August 16th 2010: As I'm dropping my handsome airman off at the flight line he says "if you cant stop crying, please pull over". I didn't stop crying, nor did I pull over. I continued to drive home with endless tears streaming down my face knowing I wont be...

    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...

    My First Deployment.. His Second.

    I've never know anyone in this situation nor do I have any family members in the military to take insightful advice from. I'm a week into this and I feel like I've been emotionally "unstable" (I guess you could say) for the past month. The weeks leading up to the day he left and...

    If the distance between us wasn't hard enough, I can't even begin the countdown until he comes home. He told me he was deploying Friday, now they have switched it to Monday. I haven't seen him in over 4 weeks, and I won't see him until he comes back. As awful as it sounds, I...
