He's not even gone yet and im heartbroken already

by amber
(Tennessee )

He doesn't leave for another week or two and I'm already sad and crying my eyes out! I can't do it I don't want him to go! We've haven't been apart more than a day and that's hard enough!

I can't take it I'm going to go crazy I'm just a stay at home mom and its going to kill me not seeing him for two or so months! I don't know how people do this!

We need the money so bad and it will get better when I can go with him but that wont be for a while! Help.

by: Rose

WOW and here i thought i was alone heres a time in life where i can actually say I feel the exact same way... OMG my husband will be leaving in a week or so for the very fist time and its literally breaking me. We to need the money and i have two little ones at home. And weve never been more then a day apart from one another. i feel that i wont be able to handle it i cant imagine what hes feeling. When i read your post it brought both tears to my eyes as well a lil warmth to my heart to know that someone out there felt the emotions i was and im not just being a baby about the whole situation.. I hope WE get through this and be strong women/wifes. i look forward to keeping in touch with you. after all we can relate to our situation.... ONE DAY AT A TIME.. :) Good luck.

Missing Him Aledy NEW
by: Kat

I was just telling my boyfriend this morning I miss him, but it is different then before.

We have been together over a year and when we first got together and he would leave I would cry my eyes out and miss him something awful, it took forever for me to get used to him being on the road, but your cell phone will become your best friend we talk and text all the time.

It wasn't easy and we had a few long distance fights about him being gone when I would make plans and his company changed things at the last minute, but like I said after awhile I became used to it.

I miss him every minute he is gone, but it is a different kind of missing now, he will come home and when he does, it is all the sweeter.

Good luck hang in there and it sounds like the kids will keep you busy.

Dont worry NEW
by: Kristin Henderson

Hi!!!! I'm Kristin and I completely understand how you feel. My husband and I have entered the trucking lifestyle ourselves. My husband Joshua and I have been married just over 8 years and had not ever been apart for more than a day either. We got into OTR trucking (cross country) only 3 months ago and now have been apart at most for 4 weeks. We got into it because we really needed the money and we want to homeschool our only child. So we prayed about it, doors were opened with Swift, and we absolutely LOVE it. We are a very old fashioned family and very Southern, and it fits us well. Like you, we didn't think we would be able to handle being apart, and it is hard but when you do it because you have to for your family, and God opens that door for you, He also strengthens you to make it through. I promise it will be fine. :) I have other posts and profile if you want to read them and hope its an encouragement.
