Hey, so sometimes I get anxiety because of my girl friend. She lives in Texas and I live in Pennsylvania. We've been together for 2 years and we started getting really serious, but the problem is she lives so friggen far away, but I love her. I just never get to see her. It's frustrating because my parents won't let me fly down (they don't support this relationship). So, I told her that I have to wait till I have to wait till I get my own place to go and see her which won't be until I graduate college. Really, the only ways we keep in contact are IM, telephone, and webcam. We told each other that we will be strong for each other, but it just gets hard sometimes. I get upset when I see couples together because I know that could be me if only I could go down and be with her. My friends don't understand this relationship, but they support me because I told them that we are deeply in love. She says that we are fated to be together no matter how far away we are from each other. I have managed to control my anxiety and depression, but it just gets hard.
Can anyone give me any words of wisdom? Am I weird for doing this? I feel weird all the time but I just love her and I can't help it. =( It's been like a rollercoaster kinda.
