Most Helpful Girl
I am a military wife and my husband has been deployed for almost 2yrs now. I completely understand missing that closeness. The only thing I can tell you is what I do which is I have a body length pillow that lays next to me in bed and I usually try to fall asleep with the TV on which keeps my mind from thinking about the fact he is not next to me. I also use it for the noise to a point since I am use to falling asleep to his snoring... lol I also have two bigger dogs that will some times lay on the bed and sleep for a little bit which helps sometimes. However since you are leaving for basic soon getting a pet really isn't an option for you. It will just take time to adjust is all.
Which isn't necessarily a bad thing since you will be off to basic and will have a much smaller bed to sleep on in a room full of guys. So start conditioning yourself for it now.1
