Hello ladies. I am a mother of 4 and a soon to be truckers wife. My husband graduated trucking school and now has his CDL. He already has a few job offers. I am so worried about what is going to happen when he leaves. How do you get past that feeling?

Hi I'm a Trucker wife too and I have 4 kids. He's been gone this time almost a month. I'm starting to really get sad and I get mad at him even though its not his fault. Do you feel that way too?

Hi there! I am a OTR truckers wife. I have 4 kids, ranging from 19-6 years old. I also, work outside the home. My questions are:how do you make time for yourself? and alone time with your husband,when there is so little time together and your children crave time with him?

Hello. I am a truckers wife also. He is home when we are gone and gone when we are home most of the time. It has been that way for 10 years and I have two kids.

Hi Melanie. My husband is also an OTR driver and we have a 13-month old son. It can be very tough emotionally some days so feel free to post or message if you want to chat. Everyone has been very friendly on here.

Hi Melanie, I am new to the group. My husband is also OTR truck driver. We have 5 kids 11, 10, 9, 8, & 6. There have been times we didn't see him for 6-8 wks. I don't like being a married single mom but with things the way they are now, it wouldn't pay for him to come off the road. We are trying to fix that though. Along with raising the kids alone, I am a full-time student. Our goal is for me to graduate and get a good job so he can come off the road. Shoot me a note anytime you want to talk.

I'm a mother of 2 young children 3 and 18 months. My b/f and their father have been together for 4 1/2 years. He is an OTR truck driver also. We have been having a rough time lately because of the way he has been running and not making time for home. But he also has 3 other children he has to pay childsupport for, so he trys to make sure he makes enough for childsupport but doesn't try to make the time for our family here. Its a rough life to live being home with the kids and doing it on your own pretty much. I'm with you lady's!
