FreedomRing Posted July 25, 2008 Share Posted July 25, 2008 Well, let's just say it's been awhile since I posted on here, and this is not a reason I expected to bring me back here.....but you all are great, and helped me through crazy time during my life last year, so i'm just hoping for more of the same. I'm on East Coast time and it's 2:00am. I found out yesteraday at about 9am, and I have not relaxed since I heard the news. He will be there fore 6 months.. We've been dating for 10 months. A very rocky ten months at that. He has a child from a previous relationship(wasnt married) and this is my first time dating a man with a child, as well as seriously being involved with a man in the military. Much adjusting that took place(and still is) yet we are still together to this day... I guess you could say I'm still in shock. I am dreading this entire venture. Oh, and he is leaving on my birthday I was ecstatic to hear that I would be taking him to the airport....what a great birthday present Sigh. I was a military brat. Everyone is commenting on how I should already be familiar with the terms....but it's been about 10 years or so, since I had to see my father off anywhere...and luckily it was never to any warfare. This is entirely different. While I love my father greatly, back then, I was pretty self-absorbed, and the blow wasn't nearly as devastating as being emotionally, physically, and spiritually involved with the love of your life.....how the hell will I get through this? How will we get through this...??? I haven't eaten all day, but I managed to gulp two glasses of wine....I don't want to start any bad habits..but it seems almost inevitable at the moment...I'm just trying to be strong for him...to let him know I will be ok..and to not be anything extra to worry about for him....he's been to afghanistan last year...so he is, more prepared then I am to deal with this...please someone, anyone, lie to me and tell me it will get easier???
