    New, and looking for some support!

    Hiya,
    My fiancee has just deployed to afghanistan for a six-month tour and i'm worried about how i will cope with missing him and worrying whilst he's away.
    Also, it would be lovely to have some people to talk to who have experienced the same thing, as my friends and family obviously sympathise with me, but dont really understand it.
    Would love to hear from anyone
    Laura

    Hiya Laura & welcome to RP,
    As the others have said, the support here is amazing. There is always someone here to listen who understands.

    As Spanner said, look through some of the old threads and don't be afraid to step over to the dark side and come into the chat room...the chat room was my saviour a few times before Pants got back from Afghan.

    Hope to see you in chat soon

    Hi Laura, and welcome to RP

    You've definitely come to the right place. I'm also still pretty new to RP, but today is a shining example of the type of support you get (and give - it's a two-way) from all the people here. I find that civvies cannot wrap their heads around the realities of military life - it really helps to talk to people who KNOW what you're going through.

    I was having such a bad day today, but I am so happy now, and it's all thanks to the amazing support from everyone on here. My OH is currently away on exercise. I know, not quite as nerve-wracking as a tour, but the lack of contact is eating at me.

    My OH has said that the only way to get through these things is to set milestones, then celebrate each milestone as you reach it. Doesn't have to be epic (can't imagine him having had TOO much of a celebration in a FOB in Sandyland) but he says that's the only way they got through some days. I think the same applies to the rear party - I have to keep myself busy, set goals and make sure I actually do things every day, else I'd just end up sitting in a corner being miserable all the time.

    Hope you stick around - have a read through some of the other posts on here and make yourself at home. We're all rooting for each other on here

    Hiya Laura,

    If your at the bar mines a brandy sour or a voddie.

    Welcome to RP. Have a nose about and ask some questions if you need to, or generally have a whinge, we all need to at some point.

    Re: New, and looking for some support!

    Morning Laura
    Welcome to RP!

    A good way to get info / into the thick of it is to Search for anything related to Tours, deployment, Afghanistan etc. You might find something of use to you there or something that rings a bell (watch the dates though as some posts might be old but it doesn't matter!)

    This lot seem to be ok but I'd be biased, I think.

    One thing to remember is PerSec - as always. If you find you want to change your user-name to something more obscure at any point, feel free to PM me or send an e-mail to [email protected] and it can be done fairly quickly (just thinking as some people realise later that perhaps they're very identifiable)

    Enjoy the site. Get stuck in, no one really bites (they might growl a bit but that's just PMT/the bar being shut )
