I am also new to this Wildfire life. I have dealt with it (or at least tried to) for the last two months. This list is the BEST thing that you can have to help cope with your SO being gone. I have learned a lot, and any questions you may have will be answered by many people, from all different viewpoints. The more information you have, the more you can understand and cope.

Now I have a question for all of you.

Does anyone else here drive their friends nuts with mentioning their SO’s name in most conversations? I find myself saying “{insert name here} would LOVE this, or I wish He could see that…?” It seems to get worse the longer he is gone. By the time 3 weeks goes by, my friends roll their eyes when I mention his name. (Yes it is in a humorous way, but still… *sigh*)

How does one cope with this? What can I do to keep from driving both myself and my friends nuts? Any suggestions?

Note: Most of them have yet to MEET him, as he is gone some much.
