New to trucking lifestyle
by Tray K
So my husband left on Easter Sunday to go to Fontana, ca to do all his orientation and his test for the license (which he passed..yay).
During his few days out there we barley got to talk, text or anything. He finally left today on the road with his trainer for his 5 weeks training.
He is doing the long haul and to what i understand he will be gone weeks at a time and be home a few days. He signed on as a company driver. We have been together for 8 years (6 married), have 2 kids ages 5 and 6 1/2. And its been a little rough.
I do miss him and this is a whole new journey for me. My kids are a little young and they miss him but i don't think it has hit them that bad. With him only being gone a week, it has seemed to be the longest week! I am sad. And since i have no family here, him and my children are all i had.
He does have family here but we are "close". They do their own things.
Anyways, just wanted to find a support group to get advice, talk and ask questions. Just hoping this will get easier.
