At the moment

My girlfriend leaves for bootcamp in eight weeks. That's 2 months. We've only been together for four months now.

By the time she's back, a third of our relationship will have been spent with her at bootcamp.

This amazing woman finally comes into my life, and she's leaving in two months. Figures.
I love her...of course, she doesn't know that quite yet. I don't really know what to do. I support her fully, but ..she's going away for 13 weeks. Then whenever that's over with, she has schooling somewhere for another 3 months.
The more I think about it, the harder it is to picture us a year from now.

Still, this year has been life changing. I meet this awesome girl in the spring, my grandma dies in June...I'm crushed, and this girl that has no obligation to stand by me stands by me. I was at the deepest lowest darkest place I have ever experienced, and there's this girl...just waiting. How can the most horrible thing to ever happen to me be accompanied by someone so beautiful? It's almost like one angel had to leave me, and I was sent another.

And now she's going to leave me, too...just not eternally, I hope.

I'm so happy to hear that you've found someone, especially in dealing with your grandma's passing. If you both are really invested in the relationship then you shouldn't have too much to worry about. A long-term relationship does sound hard, even if it is temporary, but you can pull through.
