Any Advice Would Help :)
My boyfriend and I have been together for, 4 years, 5 in June. We met in high school and he slowly became my best friend and my boyfriend. He means the world to me. Since we were both starting our lives, he would mention joining once or twice and I guess I just didn't want to hear him, or believe him. But I slowly saw that he was really serious about fighting an protecting our country. He is truly my hero. He's gone and this is the first time in those four and a half years I can't talk to him when I want to, see him when I want, etc. I finally understand when army wives/girlfriends say "half of me is gone when he is away" because that's exactly how I feel. I guess I'm just looking for any advice on how to get thru this and make it easier? I don't know many army wives or girlfriends so this isn't something I can just talk to, to any friend. They have no idea how this feels.
