Hi my name is Justine and I'm 26 years old and have been dating a guy for 6 months and he's new to the job. I've never dated a cop and didn't realize what went into being a Gf of a cop especially in these scary times. I've lost sleep (he does midnight tours) due to him not answering for hours and me immediately thinking something bad has happened. I used to have anxiety attacks, and it's been 2 years and now they're back. It happens when I see he gets no sleep, doesn't have a social life because he's exhausted, and gets called into overtime when he hasn't rested for almost 2-3 days in a row. The schedules hard for us to do things and I'm just so sad and unfortunately none of my family members or friends can help because they don't understand. This is my last resort. Any advice, tips, stories etc is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
