  1. It’s definitely difficult to communicate with my s.o. since there’s not much going on. I wish the base would give us options to talk to counselors (this is whole nother topic to cover about the military taking care of its people). if deployments weren’t challenging enough, covid sucked the last remaining life out of them.
  2. I personally would love to receive an apology note from my past bully. At that age, kids can be mean and i’ve certainly said/acted in a way that I regretted too. If it’s something you think about on a daily, I would send an apology note and see where that leads. Keep in mind, an apology doesn’t have to be accepted on the spot either but it’s worth a try to make amends. Best of luck!
  3. I have 6 months. He’s only deployed for 1.5 months. There’s not much to do because I work 6 days a week. The gym and netflix is the only thing i do on my off days because social gatherings aren’t allowed
  4. Hey y’all, i’m a female and i’m currently deployed out in the desert for the next 7 months. With COVID going around, I am restricted to base and they discontinued social gatherings or alcohol consumption. The food sucks, it’s hot outside, i’m missing my family, and every day is like ground hogs day. I feel like i’m getting really sad/angry and it’s only been 6 weeks. My bf is also deployed but he’s in Europe and he’s able to go off base to pubs, explore Europe, and have fun with his friends. With my situation, I feel like it’s causing strain on our relationship a little bit. I get annoyed easily when we’re on the phone and recently when he asked what was wrong, I told him my current situation and he tries to understand but he has no idea the level of suck i’m experiencing and I still have 6 months to go. He says i’m comparing myself too much to his deployment experience. How can I explain to him my feelings? And if anyone has been deployed, is there any advice on staying mentally healthy?
