Girlfriend and I moved out to Washington state in May. Renting a house - that I've paid for since May - then I left June 2nd to go fishing in Alaska.
August rolls around and she decides that she no longer wants to be in a relationship. Although she stays in the house. While I'm still fishing. I rationalized it to myself - it's hard with me being a commercial fisherman - I understand how she feels. Just got back home to Wash. on Thursday after killing Halibut for 5 months.
We're still broken up.
So, we go out to a Halloween party last night - have a great time. Drunken make out, and "I love you's"...Then head to a bar where all of her friends are. It's another fun time - until I start seeing guys come up to her, hug her - buy her drinks. Clearly interested in being "More than friends". The room starts spinning, I black out. Come to outside the bar, standing over one of the guys who was trying to pick her up. Hands are bloody, and a window is shattered outside the bar. Manage to drive home.
This is not me. I'm usually a quiet person. I'm so incredibly lucky that the authorities were not involved. I have so much too lose.
I feel angry at people for no reason, like they will never understand my world after fishing for so long. It sucks. I haven't gone near any alcohol since - and don't plan to any time soon.
Anyone else from the Armed Forces, similar occupations have similar problems?
Any suggestions, similar stories are appreciated.
