It would help everyone if you filled out your timeline which is when you married, sent I-130 and the steps that have gotten you to this point. So all we can do for you is wing it.

OMG I'm going to give you advice totally blind. The best way to deal with not being with your loved one is communication, you need to text each other daily and talk on Skype for as long as you can daily. For you you must have been very much in love to begin with and if you were not then you should have never married each other (sorry it's true).

If he is with you, actually either way, apart or together again communication, talk to him tell him your concerns and feelings non of us are psychic and men defiantly are NOT PSYCHIC, so talk and talk and then talk some more without making him feel like dirt for not being able to read your thoughts and needs.

When you love someone deeply there is nothing that will change how you feel, not time, struggles definitely not distance.
