My boyfriend is in the USAF and he got called out  yesterday for an unexpected deployment. He wasn't supposed to leave until July. Im devastated and need advice on how to cope with this. This is my first experience with a significant other deploying. My father and friends had, but this is totally different. Please help.

Keep yourself busy. It's okay to cry and eat a pint if ice cream, but make sure it stops there. Don't let it consume you. Just continue your daily life and Skype when you can.
My husband is in the field right now and I'm taking advantage of this time to myself by watching all of the crappy B movies that my husband hates lol.
Good luck!

Thats what I am trying to do. Guess its one step at a time, its the first 24 hours now.  When I find out where he is and hopefully for how long it will ease my mind some. Also once he gets settled and we have our email routine etc, that shoud be easier. I think i just need some friends that I can talk to that understant and So i dont feel so alone. I know that I need to cherish every second him and I talk and boost his morale so he doesnt think i am going to fall apart and leave him.
