Yes and no. You get more comfortable because you know whats up but the missing them and the worry never goes away.

The best advice I can offer is to just keep living your life, stay busy and try not to dwell on him being gone. If you sit home and wallow in it, you’re going to be a mess.

@zippylef:  This!

It doesn’t get easier as much as you just figure out how to keep one foot in front of the other. The best way to answer “how do you do it” is with “you just do”. You learn not to dwell on it too much and compartmentalize.

Like zippylef said, keep busy. Connect with friends and family and don’t let yourself get too attached to the comptuer or your phone. Good luck!

@thursdayschild:  I got totally attached to my phone! haha 

Just make sure you keep living life. I kind of dealt with it by not really dealing with it. I never did a countdown until he come home. I tried not to think about when he would come home at all. It made it seem SO far away when I thought about it. I just went to work, and continued on with life kind of as if he was only gone for a week… except I had to mow the grass :oP

It never gets easier, but you get used to it. My advice to you is to make sure you get your own hobbies and things that you like to do independent of your Fiance. Also, try to make friends with others in the area that are in the same position as you. It helps to have people to talk to that undertand what you’re going through.

My fiancee proposed March 14th of this year and deployed two days later to Kuwait. It is not easy, I won’t lie, but at least we get to tango/skype every day. It’s also hard planning the wedding without him in another state but it gives me something to do with my time outside of school and work.

We’re finally kicking deployments butt now, So looking forward to the day that he comes home will be the best day of my life. 🙂 I so can’t wait to be in his arms and not gonna let go! *Kisses and hugs to him.* I am so happy to be his and nothing can separate us except the distance between us! Lol *Sighs* 

 

Her Guide to Surviving His Deployment:

1. To tell myself I’m in love with the most wonderful man in the world.

That’s why I’m doing it and I’m taking part in the creation of a hero.

2. You always hear about the healing power of touch… Which is gone during deployments.

3. In the midst of counting down don’t forget to cherish that moment I’m in.

4. Write in a journal everyday or night. Put down your thoughts, feelings, what I did and anything else. I also added what the weather was like everyday. Then send it to him when its full or save it for when he gets home. That way whatever he misses cause you can’t wait to tell him on the phone or in email he will still know eventually!

@Katherine27:  You and I will be in the same boat!! Fiance will be on deployment for 6 months as well shortly after we get married. We will luckily be relocating about an hour north of my hometown, so that will help a lot since we currently live 3,000 miles away. Just know you have the support of the other military wives (or soon-to-be military wives in our case)
