There has been way too much talk of deployment this weekend, and I’m currently in tears while Stephen sleeps. He leaves in June, and it’s only January and I already feel sick to my stomach. About 6-8 months, I won’t see him. Considering we have been with each other every night for four months (not counting like three nights, tops) this is going to be very, very hard for me. I mean catastrophic, because my feelings for him are genuine, and I feel like I’m home when I’m with him. So I need support. I need tips and ways so I can be okay when he leaves. And so I don’t waste the time with him I have now by being upset.
It’s probably not a good idea to take your girlfriends to see a movie about people serving in a war, where one of them gets killed and he has a fiancé at home waiting for him, when you’re planning to ship out in June. Just a heads up, lol.
