My boyfriend just left for boot camp

Having my boyfriend leave for boot camp the other day was beyond difficult. I can't get my mind off of him and I seem to be having trouble finding ways to keep myself busy. I sit at home all the time and just think about he is gone. I know that probably isn't the best way to be handling it, but I don't know how to get myself out of this "funk". Any suggestions? ...Please...

Get busy with stuff. Sitting around thinking about just leaves you thinking about being alone. Get up. Get out. Go do something.

Do you have friends? Go hang out with them. Do you have a job? Then pick up some more hours. Do you work out? Go to the gym! Do you write? Start writing him letters. There are so many things to do to keep yourself busy. I had a 10day old son when my husband left for basic training so it was a little easier to keep busy. If you keep thinking about it, it will drive you crazy.

Alright! Thanks so much! I guess I do have stuff to do but getting myself to do them right now is a bit challenging since all I can think about is him. I will definitely do the things you mentioned though! I actually just got done writing him a letter (:

Take a few days to be in a funk. It's OK. Then just get back into life and keep yourself busy.

Do things and take pictures to show him when you see him again. Or buy a disposable camera and send him the pictures. You will be motivated to get out and will still be thinking of him.

I give myself a day and then I suck it up and do something fun.
