Hi… Let me start by saying I love this site. I am
so glad to have found somewhere where people are
dealing with the same things I am. I have been lurking
here for about a month and figured it was time to

Family and friends don’t always understand when we try
to talk to them about what is going on. They don’t see
how hard it is to have to explain to the kids where
daddy went again and why he can’t come home at night
to play. Or how hard summers are when all the plans
you make are ruined with one phone call. You know we
have alot dropped on our shoulders when our SO go out
on fires and we are left to deal with everything.

My SO is a firefighter and has been doing it for about
14 years. This is the only job he has had and he loves
it. I know at times we all hate our SO’s jobs when
they are gone so much. His job has gotten harder to
deal with over the last few years. He is either gone
to class somewhere or he is on a fire somewhere or
just late coming home. And our kids don’t understand
yet so it makes it hard to deal with.

Well I have gone on enough about it but thanks for
listening. Thanks for having this site also!!.
