Need advice!!... My husband just started OTR trucking :(
My husband and I actually just got married august 28th and he started his job 3 wks before we got married.
He was able to come home for 10 days for the wedding and then left out to Colorado for a minimum of 3 wks. He's never been an OTR driver, he's always done local frac work and this is killing me.
We are newly married and this is kinda less than ideal, but I love him and I'm trying to be supportive. But honestly I just wanna cry half the time knowing he won't be next to me when I fall asleep. He acts so happy, like he loves his new job and has met some cool truckers where he's on location, and i try to sound happy for him, but in my head I just think, " well, at least one of us is happy and having a good time".
I'm trying to stay positive but it's really hard when he acts like he doesn't really miss me like I miss him. I love him and I would never pick another man to spend my life with but is this normal? I mean does Any one else's husbands stay gone for 3 wks or more at a time and actually like their job so much.
I know I may sound selfish but it's only cause I miss that man like crazy. And also how often does anyone else talk to their husband during the day, I don't want to seem overly clingy, but since he's not here I like talking to him since that's about as good as it gets.
Sorry I know this is a lot, but I feel like I'm going crazy !!
