How I am Coping With a Trucker Husband
by Jo D
I guess as far as coping with my husband being out away from home i would seem like a very unlikely person to give advice if you asked my family and friends.
i am still very new to this life as a truckers wife (only 4 months). i have spent so many days and nights crying missing him, wishing him home and counting the days until his return, but for me weeks turned into months, going on 2, i tried talking to him about how much i missed him but it makes him angry when i tell him i want him to come home because he says he can't until he gets some money built up to get caught up with our bills.
This I understand but for me i guess after he missed Christmas, now new years and still only just a hope that he will be home on the 10th I have come to the conclusion that since i can't tell him how i feel and i know my family and friends are really tired of listening, i am keeping a journal with all my thoughts and i can write about how much i miss him and want him to come home.
I am not going to say this is a good answer to dealing with him being gone but it is just my way.
