I just recently became a married single mom too. Hang in there! I have teenagers so they are not really social with me but I try to walkthe puppy daily so both of us get some physical exercise.

Well my husband travels a lot too. He's been hunting for 35 days and yes it's hard to keep up beat. I tried to get myself involved in a Bible study group which has helped ALOT! Do you have any kids? Do you work? My thoughts are it must be even harder for them to be away from the creature comforts of home and depending on what he does he's probably got a pretty mundane schedule, I really understand you as my husband is away for weeks to months at a time. Maybe just a little time when he calls to say "Ok this is how I am feeling, and then drop it" They seem to lose interest fast when we start getting all emotional 😢So brief direct words😊

It is difficult to be without our spouse for long periods of time. My husband has always traveled with his job. He was in the Air Force for ten years and the last four years he was on three month rotations to Italy. It was almost as if I were a single mom. I did volunteer at the dental clinic which helped to fill some of my time. I also tried to plan things with my friends such as a movie night or dinner out. Have you ever thought of volunteering your time online. I know my church has volunteer positions online and small groups. This helps with little ones because you are still home and you can still keep their routines normal. How about taking music lessons? My husband was in Hawaii and I picked up his guitar and started learning via Utube. Hope this helps and good job for keeping the home fires burning while he is away. It certainly can be a lonesome time and I know you are not alone in these feelings!

I am sorry about how you feel! I totally have been in your situation before. Have you considered seeing a counselor or a therapist? Meditation, good sleep and keeping yourself busy can greatly help with curbing anxiety :) Praying for you!
