How To Keep Strong

How am I supposed to stay strong when I'm not sure whats going to happen? I just get so lonely. and I have no one to talk to about it. Whenever I bring it up with my friends, they dont understand. I just hope he appreciates all the hurt and loneliness I'm feeling, all for him. All for the love he gives me. But how do you really know that you are meant to be with someone? I'm trying to keep it all together, going to school, and doing what I can, but when we do talk he isn't supportive. I had the stomach flu, and I puked up everything that hit my stomach water, medicine, food, everything. I was so tired, and he just told me to suck it up. like it was nothing. I was miserably sick, and he doesnt even want to hear it? I have given the next nine months of my life to him, and he doesnt appreciate it. :( How do you know whether its worth it or not?

You know it's worth it when being without him temporarily is much better than being without him forever. <br />

I'm sorry you got so sick, and he should definitely care. But try to see it from his perspective. He's living with the possibility of losing his life, instead of just the contents of his stomach. He could be watching buddies lose limbs, instead of their lunch. <br />

While he still needs to be supportive of you, you need to try to understand and cut him some slack. You are not his primary concern right now. It can take time for them to get the hang of being deployed, while still remaining emotionally available to you. Try to talk through it with him.
