    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Lost and Confussed

    I have been dealing with this on my own for the last month now, and am not sure what way to turn.
    We were fine 1 day and the next he tells me to get out..... For 2 weeks we did not even speak to each other. He slept in the bed and I on the couch. We are now talking but not about what needs to be.
    Some background: We have been apart most of our marriage he was on the road (railroad contractor) and I at home working at my job. In January of this year he talked me into quitting my job of 16 yrs and going on the road with him. We rented a place 3 hours from our home where he is working at the moment.
    We have been together 13 years and married for 9. He says that he needs some space that his entire life he has lived with someone and that he needs to live alone for awhile. I don't know how to respond to this other than to say that he should have thought about that before we married.
    I am at a lost for words, don't know which way to turn, I can't eat, can't sleep and I cry constantly. He wants me to go back to our home and him live here. I try to explain to him that we have 30,000.00 in credit card debt and another 28,000.00 in household bills electric water rent here, mortgage note at home, truck note and insurance. If I go home that is just going to make more bills, more on the electric, water, fuel for the truck etc...etc...
    I don't want to give up on my marriage but I can't live like this either. I love him more than my own life. ANY SUGGESTIONS??????
