How do you take away this sadness!!!

by Nancy
(High Point, NC)

My husband just started working this past Sunday as a trainee truck driver. This will be going on for two months during probation period!

I was sad and exciting for him as he started his new journey in life with something he feels positive about doing for himself in life. I miss him sooo much!!!

Now the hardest part to all this is not be able to freely talk to him because of course he is with a trainer. I totally understand, but it's hard when more then 10 hours pass without hearing from him!!!

We have small children of 11,8,3 which keep me on my toes.. I also work f/t so I'm distracted at work but when I get home I'm soooooo sad, stressed, aggravated cause I haven't heard from him or I don't know where he is at.. I've been crying at night to sleep and I'm trying to be strong for all of us but I feel sooo bad!!

I want to be positive about all this and towards him because I know it's hard for him too in all ways. Really need positive thinking and support to stay strong. Hope for the best.

It's amazing how complete strangers can share the same sadness NEW

I completely understand your sadness!!! We are all affected by this!! It's definitely feels like a loss and I feel sooo empty without him. I'm sooooo used to having him around, and now that everything has changed, I hate coming to an empty home and an empty bed!!! It's been really hard at night, can't sleep right at all.. I'm the happiest woman on his one day back a week but as soon as he leaves I'm a wreck all over again.. If you need someone to talk, please keep writing... Hopefully we can cheer each other up thru expressing ourselves on this..

My husband just left tonight to his training as well. I cried for days before his leaving and again and still now that he has left. We also have 3 children(8, 7, 5). I am an emotional wreck. I do work full time during the week with weekends off and all I can think about is coming home to an empty home without my husband waiting for me to walk through the door.
I'm just hoping that this feeling of sadness, loss and hopelessness goes away. I love my husband with all my heart, to see him walk through that door would make the sun come out for me again.

Sadness never goes away! NEW

The sadness never goes away completely! I still cry myself to sleep some nites! But you do get used to it! Try wearing his tshirts to bed and spraying his cologne on them! I sleep sooo much better when I do this!
