My boyfriend joined a company for the oilfield just this April. His hitch is work a whole month then back home for 2 weeks then back to work again for a whole month etc..He came home and now is gone again :(. We have two kiddos a son who is 3 & my daughter who is 2. My son acts out worse than ever and its really difficult for me because I have a genetic disorder called fabry disease. It never goes away and is very painful and makes it really hard to be both parents while hes away. He knows I'm sick but always reminds me that he needs this job because he doesn't want us to struggle anymore. I get lonely easily and its weird when he's away. I just want him home..but I know if he stays at this job we won't struggle. How do you guys deal with your loved one being away? What helps motivate you until the day comes when they come back home? I feel like I'll never get use to this :'( and I don't know how to get my son use to it either he doesn't listen to me the way he does when his dad is at home...
