    New Girl

    hello everyone

    im 28 and am relatively new to the army life scene. my man and i have been together again for nearly two years although we met and dated 11 years ago in our teens, before he signed up to the Army.

    this is my first tour and he is in Afghanistan. He is due to come home at the end of the month for r + r before going back out for another 3 months by which time we will know where his next posting is going to be.

    I dont know how you all do it, and i hope you will have lots of advice for me

    Hi Lyra - welcome to Rear Party

    I'm in a pretty similar situation to you - boyf and I were also together in our teens and got back together a decade after we split. He's due to go out to Afghanistan really soon (also our 1st tour together) and is joining the regs when he gets back. I started coming to this site because I had no idea how I was going to cope with it, but the people on here have been amazing and really helped put things in perspective. There's a thread called "1st deployment" in the "Significant Others" forum with some really good advice - maybe it would be useful for you as well? I'm sure the others who have been coping with this for years and years will be a lot more helpful than me but hopefully this is a start.

    Look forward to talking to you more online,
    GM.

    Re: New Girl

    me again. and feeling pretty low at the moment. my family are having a party to celebrate my birthday at the start of the week. traditional irish family with guitar and singing old traditional songs.

    Problem is my OH absolutely loves it, being Irish himself. They are singing all the old songs that he loves and I love hearing him sing. it doesn't help that I have had a couple of drinks and am missing him terribly, and i mean only a couple as i'm not in the mood to get really drunk. what does it solve?? my OH would still be away in the morning and i would have no one to get me my Lucozade.

    sorry for the moan. i have been texting my OH but its the middle of the night in Afganistan so i'm not going to get a responds and i just thought some of you here could kinda sympathise. (full of selfpity aren't i)

    thanks for reading

    Best thing is to keep your spirits high, Im sure you wouldnt want your OH to worry about you while he's out in the sand pit I could always sing a pishy pixie version of 'happy birthday' to you, its sure to make you giggle ....Chin up hunni x
    Live every day like its your last.....party PARTY party!!
