Searching for group

Does anyone know of a group for moms who have a boyfriend/husband that travels for work?.  My bf is a union sheet metal journeyman and goes where the work is.  Which is currently almost 3,000 miles away for the past 6 weeks (and 2 more to go).  Just looking for support and advice from others in similar boat.  Thx!

What does a sheet metal journeyman do?

Thankfully my husband doesn't travel. I'm not sure I could handle that.

My husband traveled a lot in his former job.  It made raising two boys more of a challenge, but at least we had money coming in.

Hi welcome to the group! I'm sorry that must be difficult to deal with. I hope you can find some other moms who go through the same thing. Do you live near any family?

Yes, I know how you feel.  I just got married and my husband is currently gone for 10 days and in march leaves for 6 months.  I just moved to so I dont know anyone around!  It can be very fustrating.  Im not sure how Im gonna deal with him being gone for so long.  How long is the longest your bf has been gone and what do you do to stay busy??

I think I wouldn't mind if my hubby traveled for work we don't spend a lot of time doing things 2gether as it is and I avoid him to prevent having conversations that could lead to arguments . Plus I found out I miss him terribly when he's not around cant think a negative thing about him but its all different when we r 2gether. I believe he feels like that too he always sends me sweet texts when we r apart but we irritate each other so much in person
