Desperate

My boyfriend and I have been best friends all through high school, we've been in other relationships but have always been really close to eachother. We started dating about five months ago and it's been amazing! He is so sweet and genuinely cares about me, we'd do anything for eachother! But he enlisted in the army just a week before we were dating (I didn't have much of a heads up). I've known since we started dating that he's been going to basic at Ft. Jackson on September 18 and then going straight into AIT, so he'll be home around Feb. 22. We had a great summer, and we tried not to worry too much about basic. But he left three days ago, and I am a mess! I've been crying all the time. I don't have too many friends left at my school, I'm a senior in high school and my friends (including my boyfriend) have all graduated and went to various colleges. It feels very lonely, I don't know how to handle it. I'm sad all of the time, I don't feel like doing things but I know I should. Sadly, I went to school today and missed several phone calls from my boyfriend. I feel awful. I just want to hold him again. I know he's scared too, which is why I've written him 9 letters already (yes, 3 a day). I know he'll need the support. But I don't know how to get through this.. I need any advice/help/support I can get. Pleasee, I'd appreciate it soo much! Five months is such a long time to be away from him...
