Why Does Time Go So Slow?

  The love of my life just left for Afghanistan and I miss him so very much. We have only been together for a couple months but I never knew what love could be until I met him. He was stationed in Alaska and I live in California where we both grew up. we knew eachother when we were kids but fell out of contact until he found me on myspace some months ago. He came home for leave and we spent every second we could together. We fell in love fast and hard and it was amazing.

   He flew out to Afghanistan on the 28th and I just can't get used to waking up without a text from him. I miss him so much...I feel like part or me is missing...like I'm an empty shell because he has my heart with him. Hopefully he will come home in July for his midtour leave but we don't know yet. Then there will be another 6 months and I'll finally have him home safe and sound. It is so hard not to worry but I can't tell him I'm scared...I have to be strong for his sake if nothing else.

   It is good to hear from women that are in my same situation. It makes me feel a little less alone. Good luck to all and I knwo that they will all come home safe!
