Hey all. my hubby is on call and still isn't home. gets pretty lonely at times. I just had this conversation with another mom about how people think my life is so charmed having a husband who is a dr, but it can be very lonely and isolating. very much the single parent thing.

Hi All. I am new to this group. My husband isn't a doctor but he is an RN but I can relate to you all about how you all are feeling. My husband is always working. I feel so much like a single parent most of the time. He works 12 hour shifts and tends to work longer shifts or gets called in alot on his days off. We also have a home business that I managed while he was in school before we had our daughter and even afterwards as he was in his last year of nursing school after having her but now she is 2 yrs old and I have 4 month old twin boys and boy am I busy that I just can't get the time to really manage the home business right now so if he isn't at the hospital working he is in his office in the basement working with the home business. Yes when doing the home business when home from the hospital he is here at home but it is like he is gone cuz we don't see him except when he comes upstairs to eat then heading to the post office. It can be quite isolating at times and right now it is too cold to take the kids anywhere so being stuck in the house with 3 little ones is even more isolating. At least in the spring and summer I can have the kids out and about and helps to keep my mind off of him being gone so much and not feeling so isolated.

Hello to all!!! My husband is starting his residency in June (currently MS4 and on his last rotation). I am trying to get myself ready for what is to come. We were lucky that he had time off when we had our daughter and with Hurricane Ike changing his rotation schedule he was able to stay home with her for a few months when she was born (she is now 4m2w). I really feel bad for him since he really wants to be here with us, but his new work schedule wont be an easy one, General Sugery...

I am new to the group. My hubby is only a MS1. This is like starting life over for me. He was previously a PA and decided to go back to school. I have 3 kids and am already experiencing this single parent thing. I was a single parent at one time so I'm no stranger to it, but it doesn't make it any easier. Please tell me this time is going to pass by fast! What I'm reading doesn't look too encouraging! lol!

Hi, sorry to hear you're alone often. I agree and feel that way too at times. My hubby would definitely be home more if the could, especially now with out daughter. He can't wait to be done with residency. Only 1.5 years to go and his schedule will be much better after that. I was lucky that he took 3 weeks of paternity leave after our daughter was born. It was sucha great help and it's always wonderful when he iS home. I suggest you bring in any help you can from friends and family. After all, it takes a village to raise a child right?

It does feel like we're single mom's sometimes.  There are a few I work with, and while we do still have some support that they don't, scheduling and tasks still all fall to our shoulders.  But there is always light at the end of the tunnel!  What year is your hubby?  Mine is a MS3.
