Hormones and missing my partner in the week

(3 Posts)

Hi all, I was just wondering for some advice on tips of dealing with my partner and I being so far away from each other in the week. At the minute I am 7wks (tomorrow) pregnant with our first child. We live separately at the minute, and are desperately saving to rent a house, I live in supported accommodation currently as I have been recovering from a breakdown last year. He lives in the nearest city which is good hours travel on the train with walking as well. I don't have any family support whatsoever, being as I have no contact with my parents. (positive) It will be a while, hopefully not too long until we can move in together but for the time-being it's crippling me. With me being in full-time college, and he's training for a new job, which we desperately need, I travel up to his each weekend as he's not allowed to stay down mine due to rules of where I live. When I wasn't pregnant I could deal with it, but now I'm finding it really stressful and lonely. It's getting me really down. My hormones seem to be kicking in at the minute and I had a very embarrassing crying session on Friday in the middle of college, as well as a bit of an episode at him on the weekend. I would say it's hormones but it's about the same thing. I miss him, and he misses me, and it's really hurting me. He's the only thing I would consider as family. He's loving, caring and everything I could ever wish for in anybody, I got home tonight after speaking to him and I just cried and cried and cried. Not because he's done anything, I just miss him.

As you've created 6 duplicate threads, may I suggest you click on 'report' on each of the other 5 to have them deleted asap.

Many couples/families are separated during the week, but an hour on a train with a walk each end is no more than what many do twice a day as part of their commute to work.

How long have you been with your dp and there any reason why you can't live with him in his present accomodation and commute to college each day, or travel to his after college midweek and journey back the following morning?

Will you be able to stay in supported accomodation if you haven't saved enough to rent with him in 7 or 8 months' time?
