Alone For the First Time

my husband and i got engaged 28 days before he left for basic/ait. he came home to nj, we had our wedding, and then a few days later we packed our bags and moved to our first duty station. now, one month later, he is deployed. he just left last night. it was so hard to say goodbye to him. now i am living completly by myself and i am not sure how to feel about it. i worry about him all day long and i feel like this is going to last forever. this is especially hard considering we JUST got married. i know we will make it through this, but damn this is harder than i thought. i feel completly heart broken

I know that feeling. I feel like it will last forever too. Like if I stop moving and think about it I will get that lump in my throat all over again. I go home and stare at the walls that we have made home and I cry. I don't know what to do. We have spent the last year being everything to eachother and then 3 days ago I had to say see you in a year to him. I couldn't say goodbye. I don't really know how to cope. I don't tell him because I know he has enought stress but I feel like if I don't tell someone I'm gonna pop! Sorry....Didn't mean to vent depressing stuff when you're trying to stay positive

Hold your head up high sweety, it does suck, and it will continue to suck until he's home. Keep your head high, and don't become most Military Wifes who start drama because they are bored... :) I wish you the best of luck on your marriage. -Gumi-

Stay strng and positive. Take each moment as it comes. Its never easy being a forces wife. This is an amazing place to meet so many other women who know how you feel. I'm here if you need to chat.x

Who is to say that it is more difficult when you just got married or after you just got used to each other. Yes its a sad situation but you do have to accept this is the way it is and this is what I have to do until he comes home. When he comes home he will love you more for it. Make him proud he fell in love with you and not have to worry if you are ok.
