Gentle cyber hugs from SoCal.  My Dh used to have to go away for  few weeks at a time in his old job.  I’m pretty independent, so I just focused more on work to keep busier.

And for some perspective–I in no way want to minimize your pain, it’s very real for you.  But, we have Bees whose SO’s are deployed in dangerous combat zones for months at a time who would be ecstatic if their men were working in a safe place & coming home in 3 weeks.

Maybe some of our LDR Bees have some ideas for you.

How about you figure out a project you can do to surprise your fiance with when he gets home? Does something need to be updated around the house? A photo album of the two of you (maybe make one for both of you for when hes gone). There are lots of things to do to keep yourself busy. You can’t do anything to change the situtation other than try to make the best of it.

FutureMrsGeek:  hugs From australia! Use this time to catch up on trashy tv and catch ups with your girlfriends and other people! I know the feeling- it sucks but 6 weeks will fly. you have to break it up into days, then weeks 🙂

That does suck! The key for me is not to wallow at home – I work out (exercise endorphins are a bonus) and see friends a couple days a week.

are you in a place in life to have a pet, if you don’t already? We have two adorable kitties and it makes the time at home by myself so much better – and same for my husband when I’m gone for weeks at a time for work (like right now).

have you thought about seeing somebody to talk to them about possible depression? it does sound like you feel more bleak than one might expect… Hugs!
