Hello. This is the first time I've ever joined an online group. I'm definitely in search of support, coping techniques for dealing with my husbands job. We've been married going on 6 years, have one 2 1/2 year old child and are pretty damn in love. However, his absence is killing me. I don't have a large family or friend network and with him being gone so often it's really difficult to establish any consistency. He's gone from 1 1/2 months to 3 months at a time. During his heavy season, he's only able to make it home for 4 days to a week. The longest he's been home for is a month in the past 2 years. He didn't travel at all the first 2 years we were together, attempted to get off the road for a while but he was miserable. Life is such a roller coaster and I'm just afraid that I'm going to live a life of misery! Help!
