    When DH was in boot camp, I worked as much as I could. I worked almost every day & when I wasn't working, I was hanging out with friends, his family.. my family, etc. Anything to keep my mind off him.
    I wrote him a letter every day - to tell him what happened that day.

    Find a hobby, supportive friends (even message boards!), etc.

    Good Luck Time flies, trust me!

    I have just keep myself busy with work, gym, school and I write him everyday. It gets a little easier as time goes on but not much. My df is in AIT training now and I send brownies at least once a week so that keeps me busy too. I hope this helps. Good luck and stay strong.

    Keep yourself busy / around people so that you don't have time to think? Something like that was my gameplan. When I had time to think, or at night, was the worst. (I also recommend sleeping less. Makes you more productive, solves a lot of that "insomnia" problem, and gives you less time to lament that you're sleeping alone.)

    Never said my methods were healthy.
