the thoughts of being alone

how do you get through the being alone part of this? I miss my husband so much that I haven't slept in 3 days and it is hard for me to eat. My kids see this and that is the worst part, I don't want them to see me like this. Please someone help me understand.

i know it is hard
by: Anonymous

i know it is hard , ive been doing it along time. there just comes a point that you have to go ahead and go on and just do the things you have to do . i didnt want to go anywhere because i didnt want to go without my husband things just arent the same without him there but you cannot sit at home and let the kids see you like that . it is hard on them to lose one parent to the road and then watch the other one go through such a depression . it is hard and it doesnt get easier at all . truck driving is a hard way of life,so many sacrifices a family shouldnt have to make. its hard on the truck driver to have to work so hard to make a living for his family he has to be away and suffer that loss and be treated poorly and disrespected by employers and the industry . it means alot to a trucker to know he has a stable partner at home keeping things going , i know it is so hard and you have my prayers. you must work together as a team and comunicate and be understanding of one another and listen . you can only change how you view things and how it affects you , its not what you say it is how you say it. communication is so the key and mutual respect. God bless your family on this journey you are on. i pray he guides you and your husband to be the best for one another you can be. that is the only way it works . if you ever need someone to talk to my email is moosewheels55@yahoo.com

Alone but not all alone
by: DZRTJUL

My man is brand new to this field. I use the daily phone calls, 4 or 5 a day and my dog Molly to fill the gaps.

Alone
by: Anonymous

I have been experiencing the same thing. You are not alone at all. My husband and I have been married for 27 years, and together for 30. We have not been apart for more than just a few days prior to this new job as a trucker. This has been quite the transition and a much harder one than expected. I went to a doctor and got put on a perscription for an antidepressant. It doesn't take the problem away, but it does help me cope, which is what I need. The ability to cope.

Not alone
by: h.iossa

Maybe it helps to know you are not alone in these feelings. Luckily my faith lets me know that I am not alone. What gets me through is focusing on the end goal. We have a plan that will mean less OTR in a few years and hopefully us making our bills. Our older three kids are 18+, the younger 12 is effected the most. This is new to us this year never being apart for more than a few nights in 25 years of marriage. I am crying less now than in the beginning. I am looking for ways to explore my interests and ways for my son to be busy. Good Luck.

Little things that help
by: Kristy

My husband is also a truck driver. He was when we met and i thought that it would be hard for me to deal with it, but i have found ways to cope.I do miss him alot expecially when my day has gong bad. Find you a hobby or signup for some kind of activey group to pass the time. I started college at theage of 31 for my nursing. It has helped alot cause i stay busy with home work.I also sleep on his side of the bed when he is gone; it makes the feeling of an empty bed when your spouse is not there, and when you take up that empty space the feeling of empty is not there. weard hoe it works but it does. Hope this has helped you.
