On the road again...
My Hubby with Angel
I have been with my husband for 11 years now. When we were both 21 he decided to get his CDL while I went to school to get my CNA. That was the hardest time in my life, I left Ky for Va, and he left for Mo. I thought for sure that was it, the end of us, after 7 years.
Everyone told me long distance relationships never worked, but they were wrong. We stayed strong and devoted to each other.
It was very, very hard. Some days I couldn't get out of bed, I was so lonely and depressed. I started having anxiety attacks and not to mention that I ran our cell phone bills sky high! It was a horrible time for both of us, I tried to stay supportive because he truly loved it.
After I finished school, I decided one day I didn't want to be a nurse and I told him to come pick me up and that was when I went on the road with him for the first time. It was exciting, nerve wrecking, and beautiful all at the same time.
I learned so much, about maps and directions, paper logs, and lets not forget about the truck stops! lol
Thankfully we didn't have kids then, just our furbaby! The living quarters were cramped and we saw way too many subways too count, but when you wake up somewhere in Colorado too the sun coming up. You felt at peace. I have been all over the U.S with my husband, we are only 25 years old, and yet we have been to Cali., Vegas, NYC, and so many more places!
For all those that are just learning, it will get better! Just remember that he is doing it for your well being, and that your love is strong enough to withstand it! Just FYI my hubby is addicted and loves traveling now.
If you don't have children then take a ride and see what his life is all about everyday, you might surprise yourself and find out you love it too!
