Thought I might jump in here and see if anyone is still around.
My partner has just taken a FIFO job doing 3 on 1 off. We are only in our first week of the first stint and I am hating it already. I have a 3 year old and am 23 weeks pregnant.
When he took this job it meant i had to give up my job as a restaurant manager as i now need to be at home at night time. So i have gone from being at work up to 60 hours a week and only home 2 nights a week to being home full time so a mega adjustment for me.
I love being with my son more and not being as tired as i was but i am finding it difficult not having my partner here, very little communication with him and feeling like my life is spent passing time waiting for him to come home.
It be nice to chat with some people who know some of what im dealing with as none of my friends get it at all.
