Sleepless Nights

by Jen

My husband left for CDL Training February 10th, and since then I have not had a full nights sleep.

We have been together for 2 years, and married for 8 months, and have never spent more then a night away from eachother, even in the very begining of our was instant love and I moved in with him almost immediately.

I find myself sleeping for a few hours during the day, and I think it's because at night I feel alone...sleeping by myself in the bed seems unreal to me.

During the day ehh it seems like a nap. I cry often, because I can't tell him, because I'm afraid he will leave for home. I had a fight with my sister-in-law the other night and I cried like a baby on the phone with my husband, he said "That's it, I'm quitting and comning home I can't stand not being able to help you, I can't stand being so far away when you need me."

I obviously talked him out of it and everything is fine now with that situation, but I'm 27 y/o I should be able to get through this...

me and my hubby have been married 5 months and he is a otr trucker and we have a 7 month old baby and it was hard fir me at first i cried every day and felt abandoned but then i realized he is doing this to give my little one and me a good life. the things that helped me the most was talking to him every day and exchanging pics of just daily stuff and i slept with one of his t-shirts that smelled like him and made me a nest of pillows in bed so that i wouldnt feel so alone in a big empty bed and find something u enjoy doing to keep yourself busy it makes the time fly. and patients its not the end of the world us trucker wives have to be tough and just enjoy the time u have with him when he is home and make it special and memoriable! plan special things to do when he comes home that also helps pass the time and makes u feel better knowing u are showing ur hard working hubby how much u appriciate the sacrifices he is makeing to make a living for u! so take a deep breath and suggle his tee and it will get better!
