I am 25 years old and my husband and I have been married for 3 years. We have a 4 year old and a 7 month old. Just last year my husband decided to go for what he wanted and that was to be a truck driver. He loves being out on the road and seeing new things, he'd never got to travel much so it's something new for him. I know he misses us, but I don't think he realizes how hard it is on us, and especially me. Like I said he's only been doing this for a year now, so for 4 years I was used to him being here and having him here to help with daily tasks. At 25 I didn't picture myself as a stay at home mom and being alone. The depression is getting worse, and I always feel alone. He stays gone for a month or so at a time, and our 4 year old has started throwing fits when he leaves and I can tell it's really affecting his attitude even while his dad is gone. Our 7 month old knows his dad's voice, but seems to be confused sometimes when he actually gets to see him. I hate that he loves his job. I just don't know how to cope with how I am feeling and the lonliness I feel the moment he walks out the door. I am constantly stressed, depressed and overwhelmed with my responsibilities. Has anyone found a good way to cope with this type of stuff?
