My DH has been out of work for some time. Although he COULD go back to his old job, he doesn't want to. The money was OKay, but not great. So he wants to look in to a river barge job. It will pay really well and have great insurance, BUT, he will be away from home for a week at a time, and then home for a week at a time.
Now, we have 2 small children (3 &4) and a third on the way this winter. I have really bad BPD type 2, so it's really bad depression most of the time... Frankly even when he only worked 8 hours a day I would cry when he left, it was really that bad.
His point is this would bring in a GREAT income and have GREAT benefits... But I don't know if I can do a week without him - I'm crying just thinking about it.
I don't even want him to look in to it! But I want to support him...
What do I do? We do need the income, but somethings aren't worth all the money in the world - what to do??
