My Man is Going OTR - Need advice
by Princess Diana
(Richmond, VA )
So, the love of my life is about to begin his CDL training. After approximately 5 weeks he will be signing a contract to go Over the Road for a year with the company that is training him.
I have found this website through a search engine and thought I would make a post. I am looking to connect with other truckers' wives and girlfriends who have experience in the lifestyle.
What types of things do you do to stay busy? What do you do when the doubt creeps into your mind about trusting him? How do you manage the household and the kids while he is away? And most importantly, how do you handle not cuddling up to him in bed every night?
He hasn't left yet but already I'm dreading the thought of him being away. So I'm reaching out and hoping to get some pointers from the pros on how to make this transition go smoothly.
Thanks in advance and God bless!
