Since day one my husband traveled for work. We've always had that long distant relationship. Soon after getting together we became pregnant. We've been together for almost a year and a half now. I have always worked, but the baby was getting sick in daycare and he was a premie so we weren't taking any chances. I stopped working and am now a SAHM. It seems like I'm constantly working and I never get a break. My husband is gone from Monday until Friday. He sleeps all day on Monday and Friday so he's only really here for Saturday and Sunday. He's working nights and sleeping a lot over the weekends as well. How do I cope with this? I'm starting to feel unsatisfied like my needs are not being met. He wakes up and goes straight to work. I've had several talks with him stressing the importance of conversation to keep our relationship alive. I'm really struggling to keep positive. I feel like any effort I make he doesn't make one back. He says he's so tired and exhausted but now that I'm typing this out it seems clear that he doesn't truly love me. I'm not sure. Maybe I'm crazy. How do you stay positive while he is away at work? How do you keep the relationship strong when you don't talk much?
