Thank you for visiting my webpage that is currently a daily work in progress. I am just in the beginning phases of creating this site starting September 24th 2005.I decided that I would create and use this website to journal my thoughts and use this as a healthy and creative emotional outlet for me while my boyfriend and his battalion are deployed to Iraq for a year coming up soon (November or December 2005).
I will be completely honest with you I am utterly terrified that he will be over there and out of my life for a whole year withe the exception of the occasional letter, email, or phone call. I fear for his safety as well as the other people in his battalion. I am dreading the day he deploys, because as of right now we only know projected timeframes and I have no idea how much time we have together before he deploys. Even though he has been in the army for almost 20 years and through numerous deployments with one of them being a year in Iraq in 2003, no matter how skilled you are in combat,no one is safe from the dangers in Iraq.
While we have been dating less than six months and have known each other as friends for a year, I love this man with all of my heart and him being on the other side of the world will not stop or change that. We are both commited to one another and I honestly believe that our relationship is strong enough to endure the separation.
On this webpage I will discuss things that I experience emotionally, spiritually, and physically throughout his deployment, while being sure to protect his and his battalion’s anonymity, as he is not as open to having his life being exposed to the world.
While the things I will be going through emotionally, spiritually, and physically while he is gone are nothing in comparison to the danger that he and his battalion will be exposed to for the year long deployment in Iraq, I believe this site will allow me to deal with the reality that is quickly approaching, which is, my life with Tyke over there.
