I am new to all of this and the time for him to leave is coming too quickly for me. This past week its not just a thought anymore, its reality. We have known each other since we were five. We started dating at the age of twelve. Ever since then we couldn't be separated. Then we had a child 4 years later and he moved in. There hasn't been a day that goes by in years that I haven't been in his arms. I'm really worried how I'm gonna take it. I mean, even now when he goes to work he will send me texts through out the day. Its great and all that we are still completely in love but I'm starting to worry. I'm trying to hide it from him because I want to support him, and don't want him to worry about me. Any advice or things to get ready for? I'm going into the dark on this. I know nothing about whats going to happen and what to do or wait for.
i am pretty new to this too, but hang arond and ask other girlfriends what they are doing to prepare.
my sailor and i are older and we're both divorced, so my issues are different than yours.
worrying isn't good for you or for child. so i would see if you can connect face to face with other moms with husbands going into NAVY. check with his recruiter, and see what they suggest. this support group helps a lot too. good luck to you both.
