Having A Rough Day

My boy has been gone for 2 1/2 weeks to Basic. We have been together for almost 2 1/2 years and I have never been restricted on talking to him. It's been a week since I have gotten anything from him. Not even a letter. It's making me really depressed.

I got up and put on his sweatshirt even though it was like 85 degrees. I wanted to be close to him. I was walking around our apartment, when I saw something that would make him laugh. I wanted to tell him so bad. Then I had a Baby Shower to go to. They are mutual friends of ours and I wanted him there. Signing both our names on the bottom of the card just felt so weird.

Then, on the way home, my car started to make funny noises. I called my step-dad who is a mechanic and tried to get his help. Him and my mom want to come over tomorrow and check it out. I planned on going to the beach tomorrow and actually having a good time.

I just wish I could hear his voice. Or see his handwriting. Just to know he still exists.... :/

Hey, My boyfriend is currently in AIT, I have been where you are. It's a life change for both of you. &lt;3 <br />
It gets a bit easier after a while, you'll still have your days that aren't so good, but you'll learn to keep yourself busy, and write him all the things you want to tell him! It's been around 100 degrees here, lately. But i still sleep with his sweater, hugging it instead of wearing it now. You'll make it, just take one day at a time. If you need anything, just message me! I love talking to other people who know what I'm going through. <br />

I am currently preparing myself for this. We are sort of already there actually. Robby deploys June 22nd and it's my first deployment. He's so busy with his training that I hardly ever get to speak to him. We are fortunate because he has his cellphone still, and on VERY rare occasions I get to hear his voice, but once he's in Afghanistan, he has told me communication will pretty much be down to zero. I hope that you hear from him very very soon! It sounds silly, but keep breathing. I sometimes forget to, and then all hell breaks loose. If you ever need someone to talk to, message me! Nobody should have to go through this alone.
