The Blind spot #74
As most of you can imagine being a over the road trucker can put a serious strain on any loving relationship. It can be a real challenge to make a relationship work when you are thousands of miles away from your loved ones for long periods of time. I alone could write a book about my struggles with; life on the road, dealing with industry issues and learning to help your family back home handle your absence.
Long story short I got a divorce several years ago but still manage to maintain communication with my ex-wife to raise the children we both brought into this world. When I got the divorce I thought all the problems would end, boy was I wrong, that is when it seems the worst of it began. I am not here to defend my self or make my ex-wife look like a complete asshole. This is not the format to really share such a story, one day I may write a script and shoot a full length production as I feel our strugle would make for a great movie.
In this recorded audio clip(link below) I talk about some of the more recent problems I have had dealing with my ex-wife who I had to battle with to get temporary custody of my kids when I found out she was going to be homeless. The last time I got home my oldest boy asked me “where is mommy” I didn’t know. I called her mother to track her down. I found her mentally and physically broke down, living in a trap house in central phoenix.
This show was recorded live, I had no plan on talking about any of this. I had planned on doing production on a podcast with audio clips I have record of her on our trip across the United States, I may end up doing that as well because there is more I would like to say to complete this story.
