My boyfriend and I are starting up a website dedicated to providing support for those hurting or have hurt someone. We are new to the non-profit world.



I am a veteran and my boyfriend is currently serving so we can totally identify and we absolutely want to be a support for this community.



We are in search of positive mentors that can aid the ailed by sharing their stories, their recovery and act as a mentor. Do you think there is any way you would want to share your story with us to share with people going through this.

take a deep breath! thats what u need to do. when i found out my fiance was deploying i literally fell to the ground in tears. its a waste of time. everyday u spend sad and mad is one day less you have with him. you have till may so you have time, enjoy it. and 90 isnt that bad. pray everynight for that ten percent!! lol Keep yourself busy. do fun things when u get down. watch way to many chic flicks and shopp for hours. do everything u cant do when he is home cuz he will complain, you will get thru it. and when you get sad which you will talk to people who are going through it, and who have been there



keep your head up
