Barely Making It

Im a girlfriend of a U.S. Army troop. We have been together for 3 years and he just left Feb. 3 for basci traing. Of course i know he is ok because its just training right? but for 3 years we have been together and this seperation is a killer. We talked and planned marriage before he left I want to b with him forever. I just miss him terribly, everybody told time is gonna fly by but time has been moving so slow for me.

agree with what everyone else says and yes u are right it does seem to take forever for time to pass but it will i have about a little over a month b4 my fiance grads from marine boot camp and this is our longest time apart so its hard but i know that we love each other and that this is just the beginning and there will be deployment to deal with among other things the marines throw our way but you have to deal with things as they come good luck and write him everyday mail time means everything to them

stay strong!! youll be ok...being away from the one you love is one of the hardest things a woman can do but youll get to see him again and being apart makes you love them even more!

I learned that if I am not busy time moves slowly for me (my husband is in Afghanistan). I find that if I am out and about and doing things, hanging out with friends, working out that time goes by quicker. And once BT is over with you'll look back and realize that it passed quicker than it felt like. Maintain your independence and keep busy is my best advice.
