I am a brand new Truckers Wife, as my husband of 15 years just completed his CDL training and company orientation. He started his first leg of the 5 weeks OTR training this morning. For the life of our marriage, we have been virtually inseparable - so much that people have actually made the comments of "how can you stand being around each other so much?" With our 3 daughters older and nearing leaving the nest, they don't need - or want! - mom as much anymore. To add to the life changes, we relocated to a new town this last summer and I haven't had the greatest luck making friends with any one I really feel a connection with. I am not handling this new chapter in our life well at all. I am immensely proud of my husband for achieving what he has, and have an enormous amount of respect and admiration for him doing this in order to secure our future, but it is the absolute hardest thing I have ever done. I cry daily, and sometimes I struggle through texts, phone calls or video chats - my heart aches. I am thankful that I have been able to find a site like this, and hopefully build some friendships with other ladies who know what it's like, and can offer some moral support to get me through it.
