I feel so down today, sooo sad, why? my husband just left this morning for another 10 months of contract as a seafarer. Tomorrow he will arrive in Tokyo Japan to join a tanker ship. You see I've been married to him for more than five years that gave us with two smart and good looking boys, in those five years, in a year we can only spend 2-3 months together. And it's a see-saw of emotion, ofcourse were most happy together but parting time comes and we can't just get used to the fact that we have to parted ways again. Everytime his leaving I would always shed thousand of tears (as I am having separation anxiety), and maybe I will never get use to this. Hey guys, what makes me hook up with Mylot right now is not just about earning money, but on this site I found a support group, so I would not ask for some advise or opinion since no amount of advise can lighten what I feel right now (give me 3 months I will be back to normal, but still missing my husband)just send me some jokes or any message that would make me smile. Another thing that worries me is my 4 years old son, his been crying since this afternoon looking for his Daddy.

Yes your right, and besides I know that this situation is doubly hard for him, atleast on my side I am able to see our kids grow up, while him he misses a lot of their first. that's so sad also for him

I feel so sad for you. It must be hard having to live like this. Hold close to your heart he will be back in 3 months. Come to myLot as often as you can, post discussions and respond to friends discussions. I can't say I know how you feel but I can say that I feel for you. So turn that frown upside down. I hope to get to know you more over the next while.

I'm sorry you have to go through this my dear. I understand the terrible feeling you're undergoing right now. I know if that happened to me I could manage either. My son is used to sleeping between me and his dad, so I know things would be a wreck if he won't be with us for a night much more 10 months. I can only pray for you, please be strong for your son. Keep in touch and find some ways on how to enjoy moments with your son. Don't be so sad, your hubby might not be able to work properly thinking about you too. Show each other some strengths. I know I am not an expert to this advising thing but at least i'm hoping that eases a bit. We are with you in prayers.
