He Left This Morning, And I'm A Wreck. :( Please Help!My boyfriend left this morning for a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan, and I'm a freakin' wreck. My heart truly goes out to anyone who has ever or who will ever go through this.
SG and I have been together for six months, which won't sound like very long to some of you, but we have an amazing relationship, and we're very much in love. Neither of us can see ourselves with anyone else, and, provided that we make it through this deployment (WHICH I'M DETERMINED TO DO!), I'm pretty positive he's The One. I love this guy with everything I have, and at 30 years old, I don't think I'm exactly jumping the gun here. ;)
Saying goodbye was the most awful thing I think I've ever had to do. I wanted to just never let go. I pretty much broke down, and although he's one of the least sentimental guys I know, even he was having a hard time. I don't even know how many times we said, "I love you," or how many tears were spilled. Oh, god, it was heartbreaking.
He's been incredibly supportive of me, telling me to use this time to focus on myself and my career, and I've tried to support him in every way I can, too. I hate this. I feel like my heart has been ripped in two, and it will only be whole again when he comes back.
I know the beginning (and probably the waiting toward the end) is the worst part... Can anyone please help? How did you get through the first few days, weeks, months? He's not even going straight to ba
Anyway, if anyone has advice on how to get through these first few days and weeks, I'd SO appreciate it if you would share. I'm freaking out over here. I feel like I'm missing my other half. :(
Thank you! --- Eryenne
