Tell Me I'm Not AloneOkay, so I'm reaching a breaking point I think.
My Marine and I have been together for almost 10 months now. We made it through our first deployment with ease and his first month back was great. Well now he's reaching that transition point and is having issues settling into a new routine. I am nothing but supportive of him, and I love him with all of my being plus some, but this rough.
He's recoiling from me and it hurts. I understand that what he's struggling with has nothing to do with me, but it also makes me feel extremely helpless. I miss him so much, and this disconnect is giving me the worst anxiety ever. I'm trying to push through and take care of myself, but I feel like I need him, and he doesn't want me. I just don't know what to do with myself in the mean time, either than to be patient with him and ride it out.
I know there are a lot of us going through things similar to this. But I think I just need to hear it, and need to know that it's possible to overcome it. I'm terrified of him pushing me away and losing him. Anyone have insight?
