Stressed when he's gone... NEW

I do have a suggestion if your husband is willing to listen to the suggestion too. He has been driving long enough now to go with a company that may do short-haul or local work that would have him home more often. If he loves truck driving he ought to be willing to change companies and find one that would get him home more often to be with you and his young children. Before you cave-in emotionally, seek some guidance from a counselor that will give you some pointers as how to cope as you work out this situation with your husband's help, but he has to help. You might even look on line at trucking companies that do short-haul and local work, while he's out on the road, but he will have to go through the motions of applying and interviewing.
