My Fiance is in the military. He is in the Navy. He has little deployments now until his eight month deployment in Feb. I am already falling apart because I love him so much. He wants me to not worry about him so much while he is away. I get that. Still, it is so freakin’ hard. He says that he is worried about me but he says we will make it through. I need to toughen up. Lol. Any suggestions on how to toughen up?

Being a former soldier and now about to marry a soldier is a difficult thing. Life doesnt stop just because they leave. Make sure you stay busy, yes he is leaving but he will come back and you will want to be organized before he returns. There is FB, Skype, and numerous other ways to communicate. It might not be the same but at least its something. Keep your friends close, work if you work, go to school if your still getting your education and remember not to stress him out while he is deployed.
My Fiance goes to some of the most dangerous places on earth. If something is wrong at home, I dont tell him unless its major because he needs his head on his situation and not on things going on at home.
Remember there is a support system through Family Readiness Groups for each branch of service. Sign up and go and meet with them. They can help you adjust to him being gone.

Hi! My Fiance is in the marines and is on his second deployment right now. (been together over 4 years) Keep busy i stay surrounded with family and friends and am going to school. I know for my Fiance he needs me to stay strong so he does not have another thing to worry about, when he leaves we kiss smile and say I love you & see you soon! (its hard but i keep on a strong front) He can’t handle it if im blubbering, thats what I do to take the worry off my Fiance.
I don’t know if your living on/near the base but if you are there are plenty of ladies who will be going through the same thing and you can spend time with them as well 🙂
PM anytime if you wanna talk ::hugs::

I am sorry you are going through the emotional struggle of holding on while your mate is gone. We have all been experiencing the same pain and I have gone to school and receive my bachelors degree in his absence. I will put you in my prayers because I know it is so painful and family and friends can only do so much but the quiet times when you are alone are the hardest.
