I Hate Drill Weekends ( kinda long Vent)

I had a nice day with my soldier yesterday....I just hate how he has drill this weekend. I feel alittle light headed and nauseated...adn im here by myself....and the people above us are making my head hurt. Im just so glad that Next weekend we are moving away from here...and we can spend it together( even if we are moving a good majority of it.

I just feel like im alone more then i am with him during weeks like these and i live with him. He works the night shift all week except friday..and most weekends we are together ( unless he has drill....or is trianing)...but on busy weeks like this i just feel lonely & blah.

Next month he has AT for 2 weeks so I will only be with him 2 weekends and then he is gone til the end of may or the 1st part of april.

I know he has alot of training to do before Jan gets here due to the deployment....he will be gone in May, august and Nov and still has drill every month..... Sometimes i just feel forgotten cause the military comes 1st every time.

I just want time with him and to come 1st once..and not have tot hink about the military taking him away for something....

I just wish time could slow down and just give us some time with out the Army interferring sometimes....im just having a very lonely sat...and sun will be on repeat.

I cant wait til we are marrid this July.....and to finally be recognized by the Army....and not just the one pulling the strings with no voice.

I had this dream that we were getting married and no body was there but us and the pastor..then i had another dream that the diamons fell ouit of my engagement ring and we couldnt find the jewler to fix it while we were at church.

I hope somebody understands how i feel i just have alot on my mind.

I understand what your going through. It's really tough! Although I am younger and he is just a recent boyfriend it just sucks that hes always gone. He went to AIT for 5 months!!!!!! it was sooooo difficult, i went to prom alone, i was alone on valentines day even though he sent me flowers. I just wanted to be with him. Now that he is back i do get to see him a little more, however his other job does get in the way sometimes and he lives about 30minutes away. He is in National gaurd but im not really sure what hes doing. He told me he wants to do combat medic, but im not quite sure what that consists of. I just don't want him leaving for a long time again. I can handle a weekend but months not soo much! Also I don't want him getting deployed because even though he is not active there is still a chance that he might be deployed :(

my fiance is army National Guard full time. The longest i have been aay form him is 5 weeks so far.....so this 2 weeks is going to be ok..i will just stay at our new apt etc.



then the wedding is in July...and then he leaves in August....and NOV then starts his deployment training in Jan :( thats whats going to be hard.

Doing a lot better than before! Lol we had a good last few days. I just keep reassuring him that sure he'll be gone for 2 weeks but honestly thats nothing compared to deployment or even having him when he got back from being gone from anything, you know? It's definitely worth it, being there and supporting them. He put in his app or whatever to be promoted to SGT to we're crossing our fingers.

Is your fiance AGR or just Reserve?

I agree plp dont give us any credit it seems at times. Oh trust me they deploy...my then hubby is deploying early next year...and im not looking forward to it. Yes it does seeem like he is gone alot..im sometimes feel like we never have a moment to oursleves due to the damn Army NG.



thanks im proug to be his fiance. How are you holding up?

Being an NG girlfriend is definitely tough and people dont give us enough credit. Sure they may not deploy like Active Duty Army does or as often but they are always off doing something with the army. They have drill every month whether it be a 4 or 5 muta or AT or just anything. So sometimes it seems like theyre always off doing either the army thing or working. I dont live with my boyfriend but at least we both work 1st shift so that gives us a good opportunity to see eachother during the week. Things will look up, we all have our "down times" but even though the army is his commitment, so are you and I'm sure he wishes he was with you while youre sick and comfort you than having to go to drill. And even though this is on the internet and arent "physical friends", all of us have something in common and we're here for you hun. And congrats on getting married!
