    Not Just a Job...

    Truck driving affects the whole family, not just the man or woman behind the wheel.  My husband was a truck driver when we met, and still is.  When we talked about our future together I told him I could handle him being away but I didn't want it to be that way...

    20+ Years

    I have been married to a trucker for over 20 years and they are a breed of their own. If you aren't a strong person on your own without him around, the chances of you being able to handle him being gone for very long aren't very good.       ...

    I love my husband and I love the career he chose. At first it was very rough for me being young and not understanding all that was in front of me. I was a young woman with my first child when it all began and I suffered mentally. I really didn't know what to do with myself, being...

    It's Been 4 Weeks Now

    And it looks like he won't be back for at least another couple weeks.  If I had to summarize how I'm feeling at this point it would be lonely, resentful, overwhelmed and depressed.  My ex-husband had strange hours where he works and was not home as much as I would've...

    5 Years

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones because my trucker husband is home every night. He gets up at midnight and most nights gets home around 6pm, sometimes earlier, sometimes later. He's in bed by 7:30. I wonder sometimes if it would be easier if he was on the road for a couple...
