I have been with my trucker for about 6 years now. We have two children. One is 4, and the other is almost 2.
In the beginning I went over the road with him for about 7 months until I got pregnant.
When our first child was born he was over the road for about 3 or 4 months until he found a job that brought him home every day.
Since then we had to move about three times, and now we are finally in a stable place, but he is gone all the time.
Sometimes after a week or two straight of me just being here with the kids I tend to get a little upset. When I say I need a break he gets so angry with me.
I don't know how else to make him understand that I too need adult interaction.
I live in a place where I have no friends, and no family from my side around. I don't get adult time at all, and sometimes I do hit my boiling point.
I don't work even though I really would like to just the cost of day care is so high.
I am hoping to join a gym that will watch the kids for 2 hours while I work out in attempts to make friends, but until I do I will remain living this life by myself all the time.
I know what my husband does, and I respect and love him so much.
Just when he does come home I always feel like I am on the back burner. I feel like everything else is more important then adult time.
How do I make him understand? Every time I try he gets so mad at me and accuses me of stupid things.
Need advice please.
