My name is Dana I have 2 daughters ages 19 and 11, I have been with my husband for 13 years. He drove truck when we met, I was alright with it however I became very lonely, and felt like a single mom.

Then my husband got the opportunity to work in the office, which was awesome, he was home every night. He did this for 4 years, then due to the economy he has been sent back out to driving truck. I miss him so much and am becoming very lonely, we just recently moved to stony plain alberta from Edmonton, this has been extremely stressful on me.

I feel really isolated and far away from everyone and everything. This has caused some issues in my relationship with my husband. I know plenty of women whose husbands work away from home and they seem to be ok with it, I went through this my whole life with my father, and my mom was home with 3 kids alone all the time.

I just feel like I need someone to talk to other than my friends, they are great however they don't mind having their husbands away. Some days I feel so selfish for feeling like this.

.... not good

.. at least be cool enough to tell him first.

Those kinds of pains don't go away... they fade, but they are never completely forgotten.

My guess is, you are still fairly young and feel like you have a certain amount of "time" ahead of you and it can't be "wasted" on....
