Trouble Coping Through Boot Camp
I met my boyfriend Jonathan in our senior year of high school which was just last year. I started going to college in september and Jonathan wasn't doing much because he only had a homeschool transcript and at the time I started school, they had told him they didn't accept homeschool transcripts in the Marines and that he would have to get an actual diploma or 12 college credits. That all changed so quickly. Shortly after I started school, his recruiter got in contact with him and told him that they had changed the rules and now would accept his homeschool transcript. He had told him he wouldn't leave until January 24th, which gave me some time to come to my senses with it. He then got a phone call on October 18th saying something had changed and he was next in line to go and he would be leaving on October 24th rather than January... I was not prepared at all, nor was his family. Now that he is gone, my world has come crashing down. He is going to not only miss Thanksgiving, but his birthday and Christmas as well. He is scheduled to graduate on January 20th followed by a 10 day leave. I am ecstatic. I thought that after he left I would be able to pull it together, but the tears will NOT stop. Everything I do reminds me of him and I am having a lot of trouble living my life... Any words of advice?
