I am new to Military (specifically Army) life, as my Soldier and I have only been together for about 6 months. The best 6 months of my life. Since we started seeing each other, we have been physically apart more than we have been together – thanks to my job and his deployments (SLC, and now JRTC). I have to tell you though, our relationship seems to get stronger and we get closer, despite the distance. I’m not going to pretend that I don’t miss him terribly with each passing minute of everyday, but I’ve somehow managed to make sure that I don’t nosedive into depression and wallow in sadness! Here’s the kicker though. He’s deploying to Afghanistan at the end of the year, and of course there is no workshop, no classes, no nothing for girlfriends of deploying Soldiers. No support to help me learn to be what HE needs be to be for him (before, during and after), and nothing out there to help ME learn what to expect or how to deal. I’ve been desperately searching for something – a book, an article, a class, a website.. and have been disappointed with what is out there for GIRLFRIENDS. Any advice?
