Missing My Soldier.. <3

I'm 18 years old, getting ready to graduate high school. I met my boyfriend two months ago while he was on leave, I had no idea I'd fall in love with him, but I did. He's the best thing that's ever happened to me. He deploys to Afghanistan for 9 months in less than a week, and I'm getting so scared. I'm trying to keep busy with school and work, but he's constantly on my mind. I miss him so much and I'm not sure how I'm going to make it through these next 9 months. Any ideas to keep myself busy? I'd love for some inputs! :)

yeah its my first as well, i had no idea it was going to be so hard! and i'm trying to figure out what to send in his care packages, i've got lots of ideas, but i dont want to send it all at once, and his birthday's coming up too. thank you ladies soo much!! it helps a lot, knowing that there's other girls out there going through the same exact thing. i'm here for you, if you need to talk. :)

This is also my first deployment I have been with my boyfriend for four years, and it completly sucks but I know in the end when I see him again things will all fall back into place stay positive, hang out with friends, do things you enjoy it will help the time fly by faster also find it easier to think of it as one day gone and one day closer rather than counting the days down seems like doing that may make it harder and go slower.. Also, be there for your soldier send care packages, letters, and constantly tell them you miss them and are soooo proud of them. Also, make sure you give them all good news and try not to discuss things that may cause stress on them since they have a lot to worry about.. but I am sure you already know that. If you ladies need anything else I am here. Take care

thank you, i'm trying to just keep super busy. i haven't seen him in over a month and it's not getting any easier. is this your first deployment?
