    First Deployment January 2014

    Advertisements
    Well, he's been gone for almost two weeks and this has turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would. It's hardest at night but I keep telling myself he'll be back soon. Thankfully school and everything else going on keeps me busy!

    That is always good to hear. I think deployment success is all dependent on how one approaches it. We are just about a week into my 3rd his 5th deployment. If you ever need someone to chat with you're more than welcome to PM me.

    Glad it's going well for you. Mine has been gone only a few days so far but I've been super busy that I haven't had much time to dwell on it.

    Staying busy seems to be a huge help during these times for many!

    Yeah, been trying to keep as busy as I can... School takes up most of my day and then homework and housework take up the rest, so I hardly have time to myself anyway... It's amazing what you realize you do in a day when you aren't focusing on talking to your other half all the time. His emails have been helping me as well. I've received two so far and I'm waiting on my third... Knowing that he is okay and him telling me he loves me and that he thinks of me all the time help so much... I just can't wait for him to come back so I can talk to him all the time... It just sucks because I have other people telling me that when I wish he was home and everything, I'm selfish, so I try not to talk about it a lot, which means I bottle it all up. Which sucks. But we shall see how the rest of this goes! Thanks everyone!
