How Do You Do It??

I feel like it's been an eternity since I've seen my boyfriend, but in reality it's only been like 2 weeks.  This has been the slowest two weeks of my life.  We'd had mutual friends for years and have been talking for a long time over myspace, but only started officially dating while he was on leave and came back to our hometown to visit his family and me. It was love the minute I met him at the airport. Now I'm just trying to hang in there.  The week he was home we were connected at the hip, I feel like someone chopped off one of my legs without him here.  This long distance is tough business, and it's only been a few weeks, and he's only at Fort Hood right now, I dont know what I'm going to do when he actually deploys to Iraq in a few months.  Reading everyone elses stories really helps, all you ladies inspire me to hang in there and stay strong  [:

I felt the exact same way when my boyfriend left for deployment training. and it was the worst feeling ever when i had to say goodbye..we dated for a month b4 he left..honestly i was afraid of getting so attached...but we both ended up getting so attached to each other..i could never forget the day i met him and we were both crazy about each other and havent been this way about anyone else. even when we werent officially dating we were always with each other. i was with him also whenever i wasnt at work. the separation is so hard for me, i dont know if i should see a doctor because i seem to have depression that wont go away. i know hes fine..but i miss him and the companionship and i feel like i dont know him that well right now b/c we dont get to talk that much.

thats totally my story to me and my bf have known eachother for years and started dating when he came home on his leave and we were always together when i wasnt at work..if you need anyone to talk to im totally here
