I don't care if you think younger people cannot fall in love. Over a year ago I fell in love with one of my close friends.. He is younger than me, but since he is 17 we assumed things were legal. We never ever had physical contact while we were together in person. We were very careful in case we were wrong. Apparently the way we have texted, keep in mind its hard to have no sex life for a year, is a felony. What he and I BOTH have done. I'm sorry, I'm not going into detail. I'm not making this post to ask for help on how to get out of this. I know I can't. His parents are not pressing charges and they just said I could not talk to him. The police said I could talk to him IF he starts a conversation but I cannot start one. The thing is.. the police called me, his mom called me, but I know he is getting a different story. When his Mom called me she kept saying how sorry she was. BULLSHIT. I have heard nothing but insane things about this lady. If she realized how much we have both helped each other in our lives. I cannot say he is my world. That is unhealthy and I realize that.. but he is the one person I can trust, tell anything to, and who honestly understands. He comforts me and I do the same for him. I have never been a better person till now. I've had so many health problems and I never thought there would be a guy who understands them.. but he has been there constantly. Sure our relationship sounds weird. I know it does. And it is different.. He gave me a promise ring a few days ago and we are sure we are soulmates and will marry someday.. But now what? Now we cannot SPEAK until Feb 28. His mom said maybe sooner but the way she is there is no freaking way. I hurt like someone died. I haven't hurt like since the last time I lost a close person actually. I'm living off my xanaxs but they don't help. I'm out of my pain pills (I do take them because I have to.. Im even on fent patches but I had trouble with them and I'm low so yeah.. I'm on major pain on top of this. I just want to sleep. Sometimes I think I can make it through this.. but then I think about how long it is and I don't know if I can. I know military wives go through this all the time, and bless them. I cannot imagine that situation, so don't think I'm comparing myself to them. I'm not comparing myself to anyone. I do realize things could always be worse. I just need some coping factors.. He said he wants me to wait and to not take off the ring (i know this through a friend.) How will I keep knowing? I actually think he will have an easier time staying faithful than I will. I just don't know if I can save myself for that many months. I need help with the pain.. What can I do? Keep myself busy? I know. But other than that.. I'm just.. lost..
