    I'm constantly nervous lately. There are just a lot of things that could occur and cut me off from the one i love. 1400 miles is a great distance if there is a gas shortage or some sort of disaster that cuts us off. I've never been the type to be fearful of terrorist attack or worry about such things like this but I can't help but worry now. I feel so weak, and as a man any of you should understand, when it comes to the one you love you never want to feel or seem weak. I don't know, I guess this is a pointless post I'd just like to hear something encouraging or someone feeling the sameway to make me not so, alone in it.

    I know that and until lately I never did let it bother me. I was like you just did, telling everyone terrorism doesn't win if it doesn't terrorize us. I don't know, I just worry about her is all. I don't know what I'd do without her.

    Dude you are relentless! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I'm glad Paul's a good sport about that though.


    Hey Sled dawg, you could step off the curb tomorrow and be hit by a bus, electrocuted when you plug something in, aneurysm while you sleep... The same could happen to her whether she lives there or next door to you.
    There are too many things to worry about.

    How often do you see her now? If there were a terrorist attack, what would the impact on your schedule actually be? For 9/11, air travel was screwed up for about a month, and while I don't think it's gone back to what it was before, if necessary, you'd still have been able to get to her a week or so after 9/11.
    The U.S. is fairly redundant regarding travel infrastructure. If airplanes are grounded, you can drive. If airplanes are grounded and a nuke went off in Ohio, you can drive south, then west. Take a train. Don't worry about it too much. If disaster strikes and you're seperated for awhile, how different will that be from how you're seperated today?

    [/ QUOTE ] they'd be much more likely to hit Philly(close enough to me I'd feel nuke effects), or her home town which is built directly beside the largest petroleum refinery I've ever seen firsthand. I know really that I could get there but it would just scare me half to death not knowing for an extended time if she is ok.

    hey,remember when the power went out on the east side of the USA? wasn't that sort of eerie? we made it through that,and it could have been alot worse. i know it sucks to be away from someone you love. i'm like you my ex girl friend would fly out to texas for work related crap for a week. and i had a hell of a time concentrating on stuff. what if,AAAAAA i used to wish i could hug her hard enough so she would be inside me and then it would be safe. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Yep. My wife and I have a 4 month old, and she and the baby just flew back from TX alone. I was freaking out, waiting for the FAA phone call etc. I know it makes no sense, I flew down with them and wan't worried at all. As if I could do anything in the event of a plane crash. It's just weird the way the mind works.

    My wife makes fun of me because I've bought even more guns and ammo since the baby came, like I'm gonna prevent WWIII. Or like the big chunk of guns I already had wasn't enough.
