My husband works for a company and at the spur of the moment he gets told that he has to go to another state to work for 3 weeks. I am one of the moms that can't take being alone. I don't sleep while hes not here. I am scared to death to actually be alone. My daughter helps a little bit but I just walk around like a zombie. I love my Husband and would never think about leaving him or replacing him, he has my heart for the rest of my life. But how can I cope with this better. I know that I need to be supportive for him and I try to be, but it kills me that he has to leave me. What do I do?

I have problems falling asleep when DH is out of town (that's pretty often), but once I get to sleep I am usually a pretty sound sleeper. With the kids, I usually have plenty to keep me busy though. We skype when he is out of town so we don't feel so disconnected, especially with the kids. If I need to fill my time I usually try to take up a project while he is away. Painting or sewing. It all depends on what needs to get done around the house. Of course, the first few years of our relationship were spent long distance, so I suppose I would naturally not be as anxious about being apart. 3 weeks feels like a long time, but it goes very fast.
