Missing My Soldier

I am new here but it's good to see that others are goin through the same things as I do and it helps to read the stories. 

My bf deployed 3 months ago and we got 7 more to go :( I am missing him so much. 
And this is my 1st deployment and dont really know how to deal with it.. :(
any advice??

I'm just about to end our first one together and I still can't believe I've almost made it through. The only thing I think might help at all, is simply keep busy. Never let yourself be alone for no reason. If you wanna watch tv shows, try to have friends watch them with you. I've wasted alot of my time on watching new shows and movies and I learned to knit and I'm currently attempting to finish a blanket I made for him for when he comes home. If you pick up a hobby that takes your mind off things for a few hours, it's always a wonderful break. I currently knit while I'm watching my shows, so I'm getting two things done at once. I'm also in school and live on campus which keeps me surrounded my people. I've also recently started a more vigorous work out routine to drop some weight before he comes home. Just do something you've always wanted to do. And if you need someone to complain to or anything, feel free to always message me!<br />
