I genuinely think I'm losing my mind.

I read once of a time and place where the men left to go out to sea quite a bit, and for long periods of time. The women and children would be left tending to the home. There was a concept they developed to bridge the gap (of loneliness and disconnect). The family would keep a diary for him to read when he got home, writing about everything that happened each day the man was away. I thought this was such a beautiful concept. I think it not only would be a comfort, but it would help to keep you both connected. Perhaps it’s something to try (?)

So sort of like a daily comms book for him to look over when he gets back? That could be helpful and I'm sure he'd be more than fine with it. I may invest in a diary after work tomorrow and see how It goes. Thank you x

There are times the grief and anxiety will hit like a tidal wave and you feel like you are drowning in it. All I can say is I found I have to cry it out, pick myself up and get on with it. Remember, you can do this and do it well. You CAN. And he will be back and so very proud of you.

Feel free to contact me if you ever need to talk through anything. I understand the feelings . And am working through similar.
