Life as a truckers wife is not easy

by Latoya Lewis
(Clinton NC)


For all of you that are married to a truck driver I know from first hand that it's not easy at all. When my husband had to leave for two weeks to go over the road I think I cried the whole two weeks.

Because we had never been apart for that long he's always drove local so he always came home at night. I often hear others talking about how easy it is to drive a truck until I rode with him for two whole weeks and I almost lost it.

I can't leave my children like that without feeling guilty. But I know it's for their good as well. To make a long story short people that don't live the life needs to keep their comments to themselves because it's not easy at all.

Leaving your wife and kids for days and driving for close to 11 hours a day. So to all the truckers and their wives I salute you and God Bless you 🚛🚛🚛

Forgotten families NEW
by: Anonymous

Well sweetheart it wasn't easy. I know it was his dream 20 years ago to have his own truck and take care of his family in which he did a great job but I can't keep feeling that that truck took his life away as well with all of the specific tho :-! Involved on his death especially regarding the co.many he worked for. They are cold blooded people who don't care about nothing but there loads getting there on time my husband was a so derful man empress friend to all he never met a stranger and to be tested the way he was 3 days lying in his bed in semi deceased all because his job didn't do what they were supposed to do call 911 call me the family it makes me sick I am grieving to death I am sure I will be with him soon enough because of a broken heart. I do t want to exist in this world wihout him at t0 years old he deserves better he ways came in even when he didn't have to just to help his employer not look bad and get the loads delivered we live in :'( he was found after missing 3 days in virginia they lies and said they didn't even I is he was missing flat out lie told us to our faces he called complaining he wasn't feeling well they told him to Lau down awhile they would call and check in on hi later well they never did and people responsible for that can may there heads down at night and sleep I sbeyong me I can't imagine a man with a family that lived and lives him dearly. My children and gramdchidren are suffering we all are so many people and things responsible for what happened when he xkjkd have been saved. I miss him so much We have lost everything our home our cars my soulmate my heart I will never be ok I will never be the same angry hurt depressed confused so me y unanswered questions that certain people and companies could care less about. I wish so bad there was a truck drivers attorneys to be able to handle this case instead of any outside forms . truck drivers are family they have been since he very first got his cdl he was welcomed with open arms into the drivers family of all kinds all over the United stated I have so much respect for all the live all the things they have helped my family with. Of any one knows of any sort of thing such as attorneys for our drivers to protect them and there families from stuff like this from workplace negligence personal injury leading to death incompeitence any thing what so ever that could help my family I thank you all so much. We have nothing left nothing. He was my world I was a housewife 30 years and mother like he wanted I wouldn't change it for I thing I just want my husband my best friend back I don't no how many more days of grief or pain I can take it's overwhelming it is eating my soul up inside and out. Thannm you all.for caring. God bless you we love you all our brothers and sister... Please take care

My husband had been driving semis for way more them 20 years. We were married for 30 years he was only 51 uears old. His employer knew of all the dangerous medications he was taking including 4 blood thinners and a lot of other poison. He called his employer to complain of not feeling well and they told him to Lau down they would check on him later that day well they never did. They them lies to my family and police said they didn't I is he was missing which is a lie he had GPS all through out his truck anyway it took 8 highway patrol from virginia to finally find my husband he was deceased inside for 3 days all alone. I don't no why he disnt call me I will have to live with so many questions of why sidnt they call 911 or call me . he had a major heart attack was hospitalized 2 different time for blood clots for weeks they knew all of this it yet chose to ignore him instead.
