It's Been One Week.

It's been one week since I've talked to my boyfriend, that I've actually heard his voice. One week doesn't seem like a long time, which it really isn't, but right now it feels like forever. Going from talking to someone all day everyday, to not talking to them at all is a HUGE change. I'm not doubting my ability to take on this challenge, it just gets really hard sometimes. I try to keep myself occupied with school, which kinda works, but so many things remind me of my boyfriend and I find myself breaking down at random points during the day. It also makes it very difficult that I have nobody to really talk to about what I'm going through right now. My close friends and family have never had to deal with anyone close to them leaving for the Army... so I understand that they don't know exactly how to help... so I've just been "suffering in silence" you could say and trying to stay strong for my soldier... which I'm sure many or all of you can relate to. I just can't wait until he's done with basic training so that I can at least talk to him more often... hopefully then it'll be a little easier.

I'm right there with you! My boyfriend left yesterday for basic training and ait in Fort Leonardwood Missouri. I have been so emotional and depressed. I just hope this gets easier in a few weeks. My guy will be gone for 21 weeks.. Basic and ait combined. I've dated him for almost 5 years now and this is such a big change. I'm jut trying to deal with everything the best that I can. I can't wait until I start getting letters! Where is your solider doing his basic training?

yeah the first week was definitely the hardest for me... i probably cried everyday! but it did get easier... i miss him a lot but i'm better at keeping it together now haha. my soldier is at fort sill in oklahoma!

Yeah, I'm just trying to stay as busy as possible.. I just cant wait until I get my first letter and I can actually hear from him! It helps knowing that there are so many other girls going through this too. Thank god I'm not alone (:

i can't wait until you get your first letter, either! you'll be so happy to hear from your soldier! and yes, this website has helped me out a lot... i don't know many people who are in military relationships so talking to everyone on here is very helpful :)!

It's been 72 hours and he called and talked to me this morning for 2 minutes! They were the best two minutes of my life.. That made my whole entire day!

aww good! i'm happy for you! :)
