I am having a hard time dealing with my husband leaving for work. I feel like some times I can't do anything or make it through the day!

It's really hard. My husband has had to go away to work twice, not in the oil patch, but it was still tough.

It helps to have other people around. I actually had a friend living with me and the kids for most of the time and that helped a lot.

I would send lots of little messages about what was happening. I didn't expect him to answer them all, but he could read them when he had time and catch up. Then when we talked it wasn't like he was out of the loop on what had been happening.

For us the situation was short term. If this is going to be long term for you try to get to know some other moms with husbands who are away. I know people who've had their entire marriage be like this, and it's doable.
