I must be STUPID
by Miss Stupid
I've been married to a trucker for almost 32 years. it's not the being gone that bothers me. He had a good paying job but lost it in 2009 because of the economy.
He got another job making about 1/3 of what he did. We had our house paid off and now we owe $100,000 on our home equity.
I'm stressed to the max. If I say something I'm bitching. He didn't want to be home on Christmas. I had to talk him into it and drive for 2 hours to pick him up. My birthday was Friday and he didn't even call he.
He has called me once in a month just to say it's 9 o'clock. I found out that he has been taking out $400-$500 cash advances. He took out $9000 last year plus what he put on our charge cards.
I also found a receipt for a $250 money order. He is home for maybe 5 hours a month. And, that's only if his company has to service his truck. I've got a bad feeling. I think that he either must be having an affair or is paying for hookers.
I'm disabled and depend on what little he makes. I just don't know what to do. He won't talk. He either yells or gives me the silent treatment. I'm at the end of my rope.
I don't want to live like this any more.
