Jess - I want to hear stories of how you deal with being a trucker's wife

I am 25 years old, My fiance is trucking for USA. He just started trucking. This is what he wants to do and I support him, but I didn't think it would be this hard on missing him, yea i have the boys to help me through it but when its bed time it really hits me the most.

i find myself crying because i miss him so much. Its hard to be apart from someone that u love. I try not to say i miss u when i talk to him but it hard because i don't want to stress him out i want him to focus on what he is doing and not get hurt. He gets to come home ever two weeks for the weekend but it's like time flies by and u don't get enough time with him.

I know that he is doing it to support the kids and I, and i do respect him for that. I'm a stay at home mom so i don't have people to talk to and share things with about being a truckers wife. I am new at all this and would love to hear some of u all stories about how u all deal with it.

I am hoping that once he gets the experience that he needs he can get something local so that he can be at home with us more than he is now.

We are getting married this year and i can't wait for that i'm excited.
