Almost done and losing hope in my special person


Well, this is my first blog, and I am in month #9 in Iraq. Its peculiar how your life perceptions can change dramatically over near-death incidences. I look back at my life when I was a naive Marine in the first Persian Gulf War and compare it to now. Each traumatic event changes you every time. A year long here gives you alot of downtime to think what you have accomplished in your life and what you still want to accomplish. It is up to me to continue to strive for my further goals.

I have met a lot of good people here, and I hope all of you strive to attain your personal goals without impairing others for your gains.

When I do return to Texas in October 2005, I will do what I can to allow yall to know where I will be stopping in, while enroute home if yu want to meet in person.

The special person in my life has changed, and I am sure I have too. I refuse to be deprived of attention from her as I have for the past 9 months in this horrible warzone. I know I haven't changed in that aspect; I have always been there to give her the attention and affection that she yearned, but after 14 years, it seems like the attention that I crave from her is unachievable.

Why is this? Why is the excitement lost? For ones who have experienced this, please elaborate your experience and what you have done to remedy or move on.
