How do I get over feeling scared, anxiety and depressed as a truckers wife

by Leslie

Hi my name is Leslie, I'm 26 he is 27 we have been married for 8 and half years and we have a miscarried baby in heaven, but not able to get pregnant since so no kids.

He jus left 6 wks ago for 3 wks in Arkansas to get his cdls, with prayers and giving the glory to God, he got his cdl and made a perfect 108 on his inspection. And his overall score was 99.

Now after 3 wks of being home he has to leave tomorrow to go to Atlanta for his orientation with Werner trucking. I want to be happy for him but its hard to be. For past 2 wks I've been kinda sorta depressed.

I have hypothyroidism and polycystic ovary syndrome. And those 2 health problems are rough when stress hits. I was wondering has anyone else had this problem, of feeling scared, panicky, and anxiety and depressed?

If so what did y'all do? I also work at a gas station which kinda makes it worse for me. I'm quoting when he comes home. So I can ride with him.

He's going to be local right now though.

Thanks for all advice.

Thanks, what do you do to preoccupie your time while he is gone, before you had your baby girl? Its hard working at a gas station where its nothing but stress. I'm thinking about start crafting and selling. See if that will help. Thanks for the support. :)

Hi there :) My name is Marina and I just want to support you.. We've been married for 7 years and just had a baby girl last week :) my husband is a truck driver too and its tough especially now when you have a newborn and I also developed preeclampsia (high blood pressure condition). I hope it will get better for you as soon as your husband will start especially sometimes you can just come with him and it's fun: new places, new faces :) You can switch you attention to something new and be together. I wish you and your husband all the best
