Sleepless and Anxious
Hi everyone. I'm new to this site but I'm at a place where I really need people who are going through/went through what I currently am & who actually understand it. My boyfriend and I have been together for 10 months but we've known each other our whole lives. He left for basic in December & has 3 weeks left to go. I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel but I'm also beginning to become more & more anxious. Every night it takes me at least and hour to fall asleep (and that's by the time I decide to actually lay down) because my mind just keeps reliving memories & thinking of what it'll be like when I finally get to see him again. He is on my mind 24/7. I'm excited but I'm also exhausted from the constant worry and wonder of how he's doing or what he's up to. He has been choosing to call me over his parents the last 2 weeks so for that I feel bad, but I'm also thankful. His parents & I have a great relationship, but I don't feel like I can just go running to them with all of this. I could really use support from this community. Thank you for taking the time to read this, I appreciate it.
