NEW LIFE AFTER 50
We have been married nearly 6 years. I was a single mom and waited to find someone when my kids would not be an issue. I have one son that has mild CP. He can take care of himself just can't handle living alone.
Steve and I had the greatest relationship. We worked at the same place and worked the same hours. The madness hit with layoffs and buyouts. We were both unemployed. That lasted about 6 months and neither of us could find a job.
Steve left for truck drivers training the end of May because it was what he wanted to do. I have supported him but I don't like be alone so much. I told him if I wanted to be alone I wouldn't have gotten married again.
The loneliness has gotten better,but I love him enough to give this a try. He hates talking on the phone but now he calls several times a day. This helps. He should finish his training and get a truck of his own real soon and that should help too.
I want to get some kind of job but there is not much out there. I feel that it would help with the loneliness and depression. I really miss him a bunch. I am a strong person and am starting to reorganize my life. I am helping out at the grade school where my daughter teaches.
In order to see Steve when he gets a day between classes we go to my daughter's in IN. It's about an hour from school. I am getting excited about him getting started with a truck of his own.
I'm not so sure of the finances. Life is ever changing and I am looking forward to spending time with him on the truck.
The logistics for the truck is a 4 to 5 hour trip from home. I really don't like that but we will see.
