Hello everyone...

I hope I can post here as my relationship is somewhat long distance like a military lifestyle.

I think the biggest advice I can offer is to just keep in mind that it's temporary. Keep focusing on the fact that soon it will be over and you can get back to having a more normal routine in your relationship. Also, plan a few fun things for yourself between now and the time he gets home. Write them on your calendar and have mini countdowns to those things. It can be something as simple as going out to eat or going to a movie but it's little things that break up the time.

Good luck and I'm sorry about the situation with his phone. I hope it gets worked out so you can have that access to communication that's so important!

I feel for you. I live in an area where there isnt much going on either...makes it all the more depressing. I self-medicate with ice cream too. LOL!:smileyvery-happy:

My bf just left for Afghanistan for 18 months. So difficult being apart, but these things you will endure for the one you love.

Glad you were able to find work. I've been looking for a job since I got laid off in October...still nothing.

Hope you are able to keep nice and busy until you are together again.
