So DH left monday to go work up north, about 7 hours away. He will be up there for 4 months, comin ghome every 10 days for 4 days at a time.. 2 of these days will be driving. So we are not strangers to distance. He was in the military for the first 4 of out 6 year relationship… I didnt think it was going to be this hard but before when he was gone i lived with my family. This time im left “alone” (we have 2 dogs).
ETA: we have been married for almost 3 weeks and living together for 1 month. So i really didnt think I would be this “upset” with him being gone..
Last night i woke up in the middle of night in a panic becuase i realized that he wasnt sleeping next to me (hes already been gone for 3 days). I was convinced that he was on the couch and got up and STARTED LOOKING FOR HIM! It wasnt until i opened the door to the bathroom to see if he was in there that i remembered that he isnt here.
Ughhh… in my defense i was half asleep, but i was definitely not sleepwalking. I was “awake” and really looking for him.
I feel like a crazy person and im so sad. I hate that I have to wait another 7 days to see him. I didnt think it would be this hard 🙁 we were long distance before and have been through a deployment.. 🙁
ok pity party over.. im gonna try and keep busy and hope this doesnt happen again.

Aww, I’m so sorry hun. I get upset/lonely over DH being gone every other weekend, I can’t even imagine what you have to deal with. You’re a wonderful wife for being ok with this! Hopefully, you two are able to make the most of the time that you do have together.

Awww I’m sorry. That is really a sucky situation to be in. My FI used to work away a lot and it was horrible. Now he’s no longer leaving town for work so it’s a lot better. At least you can count down to when you will be seeing him again. Good luck, I’m thinking of you. Xx

I’m really sorry – that is so hard! I’ve spent literally years away from my guy over our 10+ years together and it SUCKS. my job still has me gone from home 4 days a week (and sometimes more like 10-20) for 6 months a year. You do get used to it…
Be thankful you aren’t literally going crazy like your post title says, though…

Aw that sucks being thrown into long distance so soon after your wedding : ( You’re not going crazy, you just miss him. Plan some fun outings with your friends to take your mind off things.
