I Don't Know What To Expect
My boyfriend will be going into basic training soon, he's got his fitness test in a few days which he will pass. We're in a long distance relationship at the moment but I still have regular contact with him everyday and I get to see him every couple of weeks or so and so I just don't know what to expect when he joins the army. I love him so much and I always worry if he will be ok. I support him completely but I'm finding it difficult to cope with what will happen in the army. I've never been one for surprises :) unless they're from him.. I like knowing what's going to happen in the future so the unknown scares the living daylights out of me. I just want him to be ok, I know the army can change a person and he's so wonderful that I hope he doesn't change for the worst. Besides that I'm just wanting support, maybe you can share some of your stories or advice? I'd be so grateful, we live in England and my boyfriend wants to join the Parachute Regiment so I wondered if anyone had gone through the same or a similar situation? Even if not in the parachute regiment any advice would be so helpful!
