It's Becoming More And More Real Everyday...

The other night my soldier and I went to our deployment dinner and now he is spending this weekend packing his gear. I know I still have two months left with him but each day his leaving is becoming more real. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with the changes and steps to leaving that will be coming my way over the next 8 weeks. I am just not sure how I should feel or how I should even be reacting, I just dont want to over react. Also what should I be ready for as far as how my soldier and I will get along, should I prepare myself for things such as fights we may get into.

All I can say is that no matter how strong your relationship is, you will get into the dumbest fights. It could be because he is cranky/having a bad day, or you are, or you both are, it just gets magnified by the fact that you miss each other. Granted, I know plenty of couples who see each other every day and still get into pointless fights. I guess my best advice is to really take a couple steps back and try to figure out what is upsetting you. Is what you are fighting about really important, or is there an underlying reason. Also, nooooo big decisions should really be discussed in any other form other than face to face on skype, and even then some of those discussions should wait until later. Also, if you have questions about something, and you don't want to bother your soldier, or want to see if you are maybe overreacting, this site is great. Honestly I have come on here a couple of times trying to see what other people who have gone through the same thing's advice is. In the end I am the one making the decision, but sometimes its nice to have people who don't know either of you chime in.<br />
Anyways, best of luck to you and your soldier! May your relationship continue to blossom!
