We usually have so much to say, but both of us have become quieter lately. Wish I could read his mind. His quietness worries me. I know it's irrational, but I get worried like he's going to get out and decide that he's changed his mind about us. Like all that time has passed and he'll want to make up for it. I'm so excited for him to get out, but completely terrified at the same time. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe he's terrified too.

I'd wager although he may have some ideas and thoughts of what he wants, even he doesn't know exactly how things will go and that alone is enough to drive one mad. Don't you think?

Patience, my darling. You've come this far.

A long time member used to say communication is key. And, it still is even if it's one sided AT TIMES LIKE THIS. Write him, just don't pressure him about anything.

Thanks for the advice. I think I just get caught up in the fear. I don't have a crystal ball and there's no way to know what will happen and I think that's the hardest part. If we end up together in the end, it's all worth it.

Sometimes ya just gotta take that leap of faith and not look at the "what ifs." At this point, you probably both have "short-timers" which can cause an awful lot of anxiety if you let it. Recognize it for what it is...and Breathe!! You'll have many adjustments to make - and that, in & of itself is scary.

If you'd like to count down the days until release, post a countdown thread HERE Its located in the main Coming Home forum...and there are several threads in the Coming Home forum that discuss the same fears you're having now
