Fiance has done two tours overseas, 1 to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan. I totally get what you’re going through. But you know what, it’s not the end of the world. You have to continue on with your life. I would suggest NOT moving home for the deployment. I’m living at home for a few months until the wedding and I’m already so annoyed and even though my parents mean well, they really stress me out and get on my nerves. You don’t need the added stress of that. 

Anyways, keep your head up and enjoy your time together until August. You never know, things could always change between now and then anyways.

*HUGS*  I really applaud you military bees, I don’t know how you do it, but you’re the strongest women I know.  Best wishes to both you and your hubby.

Mine’s leaving next year, too.

It will be okay. It’s scary and painful, but things will be okay. Cry it out, spend as much time as you can with him, and be sure to write him and send care packages when he’s gone.

I’m sorry you have to go through this. *hug*

Why don’t you let your mom come visit the first week or two if she can?  That way you won’t be completely alone at first.  Definitely keep busy by working or volunteering your time with an organization.  Sitting around the house worrying about him is not good for you.

My SO is deploying next summer. It is a hard thing to deal with but I try to live in the moment right now. You are stronger than you think.

I’m sorry to hear that. It must be very difficult. I honestly can’t imagine.

@Doralise:  I wish I could say I understand how you feel, but I don’t! Your post brought me to tears…I get to see my DH every night but I wanted to thank you for posting and especially your last line. I take for granted what other bee’s don’t get the privilege to have! Thanks for the reminder and I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers!

So sorry you have to go through this…

Big hugs to you!  My Fiance isn’t in the military – but he works on the road and is gone for 2-3 months at a time.  And that’s tough.  I can’t imagine him being gone for a whole year.  Even bigger hugs to you!!!
