Hi I'm new to my husband working away I'm in England he's gone to Saudi he'll be there prob for 4 months so away for Xmas also he's been gone 2weeks 2 weeks is the longest he's ever been away I'm trying my hardest we talk every day luckily on measager late morn and evening so I know I'm really lucky I tell him I love him every day and it has made me realise that he is my soulmate more than ever now were going to take each year as it comes and talk so see if he'll continue to do another year the trouble is I've put my all into us and my children so lost contact with friends and socialising I suffer now and again with anxiety which all began after my mum was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and lost her battle she was my best friend and now rely solely on my husband and he is the best so caring so supportive he's really is my world I'm looking forward in joining in the groups chats already read lots and I know this group will massively help me thanks joanne x

Thanks Sarah yes it was me who'd given up friends and a social life not my kids not much chance in that lol or though they are good I carnt complain it just sort of happend years go by and then you realise you don't have a social any more but I have been quite content and it isant my husbands fault either he very supportive and always says I should do something for me but it's getting round the guilt I went out for tea and drinks with 2 work friends and didn't like telling him not because he wouldn't approve in any way just that he's stuck out in the middle off the desert in a compound without much to do after works finished but I'm sure we'll understand each other and work through it thanks Sarah xx

I misunderstood that your kids had given up their friends and social activities. I lost my mother 3 years ago as well. Agony. the only way to describe it! come here to vent and ask for support, I find much comfort from the other mothers. Hang in there! I live in the US but will always respond to your posts or messages

@ Joanne "the trouble is I've put my all into us and my children so lost contact with friends and socializing"
Your kids lives need as little change as possible. I am really sorry about your mom, maybe that is a sign your hubby should finish his contract and come home.
