Today was the first week day in 3 months I was able to sleep in an extra 2 hours! My sis-in-law is going to start helping me pick him up in the mornings so I'm not running myself down. I have to say I was stressing a little. Not that I didn't trust he

I have to say I was stressing a little. Not that I didn't trust her to wake up at 3am, just that this was the first morning I didn't see him at 4am.

    Hi. I just joined and I feel like we have some things in common. My husband is a wonderful guy who decided to drive after drinks in the company truck and hit someone who died. Now he has lost his job, and will be facing 4.5 years minimum sentence ...

    CheerMomma This is my first time going through this situation. I know I don't have it as hard as most wives, my husband IS in County Prison, but he is on Work Release. So yes...I do get to see him more than most women get to see their husbands. Yes, he was only sentenced to 1 year...but I am still a wife with a husband that isn't home. He's not home to see our girls cheer at their many competitions, he's not home to watch our son play basketball. This will be the first Christmas my kids won't have both parents home. My kids only get to see him once a month...and for that to happen I pull them out of school early. They are going through things and so am I. It is a new adjustment for us. One that is proving to be difficult. I typically don't join sites or groups like this, but I need someone to talk to. Someone who is going through a similar situation.

      CheerMomma Thank you Linda! I am doing my best. Today I am a little worried though. He has lost 35 lbs since he went in and for him that is a lot. he went in at 147 and is down to 112 :( I pack him lunch every day he works and try to put as much as I can in his lunch box. He says he eats everything they give him in there and from what he tells me it isn't much to begin with. I feel helpless. He still has 6 months to go and i'm afraid he is going to reach below 100 lbs.

      TagsGirl82 CheerMomma...pain knows no time limit. Please don't ever feel bad that your husband isn't in "as long" as some other wives, fiance's, or girlfriends on here. Not being without the one you love by no choice of your own no matter if it is a day, a week, a month, a year, or 10 years is still devastating just the same. I felt very much like you did when I first signed on last year. My fiance was sentenced to 13-24 months in prison. I kept seeing these awful and heart wrenching stories of women whose loved ones were sentenced to 5, 10, 15 years...even life, and there was a part of me that felt guilty "complaining" about the 1-2 years I would be without my fiance. But the women on here are so welcoming and supportive. They made sure I knew that I had just as much of a right to feel lonely, fall apart, and mourn the time without the love of my life as any one of them did. My fiance is due to be released in 4 weeks and there is not 1 day that I don't thank God for the women on this site. Their encouragement and advice was a huge part of helping me get through this last 13 months without him. We are ALL here for you whenever you need us! I am so sorry you and your children are having to go through this situation but you are a strong woman and it is your love and strength that will get you and your family through this. You got this! Just take it one step at a time. Sending love and prayers your way xoxoxoxo

      Admin Megan It doesn't matter the amount of separation or the time or the distance. Your husband isn't home. YOU are carrying the family. YOU are going through hell. We are here for you.

      Admin JoJo Matthews It’s not an easy adjustment to make but you can and you will make it through this as a family. Take it one day at a time. This life isn’t easy for anyone but it is possible.

      Island Girl I agree with all that TahsGirl, Megan & Jojo said! Remind yourself often that this is just temporary, take it 1 second, minute, hour & day at a time, stay busy, & keep the faith. You got this;) And please take care of yourself first, you are no good to anyone if you are not well. XO

      CheerMomma Thank you ladies! The support is much appreciated! I was on another support site and when I posted my situation I had one lady tell me that I don't have it as hard as the rest of them...needless to say I left that group immediately.

    Hi. I just joined and I feel like we have some things in common. My husband is a wonderful guy who decided to drive after drinks in the company truck and hit someone who died. Now he has lost his job, and will be facing 4.5 years minimum sentence for vehicular homicide. He has never missed a gymnastics meet, basketball game or community event. My daughter is 12 and my son is 14. A freshman. He won't see him graduate. I've lost his income and have to do this on my own. I'm scared and don't feel like my friends, who are wonderful, can even begin to understand what this road ahead is looking like. I just thought I would tell you that I understand how you feel about the kids. It's the hardest part. Their lives are going to change in every way. Let me know if you want to talk.
