My DH left for BCT yesterday. I waited with him till he boarded the plane and then I talked with him for a while when he had his layover and then a brief quick phone call when he landed at his destination. We have never been apart since we started dating so this is all new to me and him. I am taking this really hard! I went back to work today after taking a week off to spend time with him and I cannot focus on my work at all. I really just want to go home crawl in bed and cry! I haven't really eaten anything in the last two days, my mind wanders all the time and all I can think about is him being gone. I tell myself it isn't forever and we just have to make it the first 10 weeks and then we can talk while he is at AIT. He texted me last night right before he shut his phone off. I just miss him so much! I am having the hardest time with this. I will write him daily and I am keeping a journal. I know they say the time will fly and I have support and prayers from a lot of people but I feel like they are missing it. Everyone keeps saying look at the bright side and look at the positive side and think of the benefits and you can do it. Right now I feel like I can't do it! Like I am ALL alone! I just wish someone could step into my shoes and feel exactly like I am and then talk to me. My DH and I are best friends and we do everything together. We are one of those weird couples that never get sick of each other and can be together 24/7 and be just fine with it and be madly in love still. I just don't know what to do with myself. After work when I go home he won't be there. I won't get to hear his voice on the phone... Nothing! I don't know how to describe exactly how I feel. I have heard conflicting stories about BCT. A SGT told him that during reception that he will be able to have his phone and night and able to talk to us and text and whatever. He has also been told that he gets a phone call with us every Sunday while he is there, but other than that it is letters. Someone told us that it is no communication besides letters. Others have told us that they had their phones the whole time. IDK what to believe and I guess we will find out. I hate this! HELP!
