We’re LD and my S/O is a tour guide. Right now he’s on a tour and he’s driving. I get nervous about him driving because he lives in a place with a very high traffic fatality rate. He’s been cramming a lot of activity into this tour and I know he’s been absolutely exhausted these past few days. Today he had a really long drive but promised when we exchanged messages this morning that he would let me know when he got in safely. He knows I worry expecially with him being so tired. I never heard from him so I called him and he didn’t pick up and hasn’t called me back. This isn’t like him; he’s pretty much glued to his phone and we talk every night. He also hasn’t been active on FB. I’m really worried. And to top it off, when I try to think of alternatives scenerios I start worrying that he’s ran off with one of the girls from his tour group, so that isn’t helping either! Can someone talk me down? I can’t sleep and I’m close to tears.

Ugh. I always get like this – whenever my SO is away or I can’t get in touch with my family. Usually, their phones have just died. That’s literally the answer 97% of the time I freak out and worry! I’m sure he’s fine – try to get some sleep!

I am not in a LDR, but I am definitely neurotic. If my SO is late coming home from work, I start to wonder all sorts of things. Chances are he came home and fell fast asleep or some other simple explanation. Everything always seems worse at night. With him being exhausted and spending his day driving, I doubt very much that he has the capacity to run off with some girl on his tour right now.

@worldtraveler: how long has it been since you expected to hear from him?
ETA: Phew! Sleep well!

He just called me. In the hustle and bustle of everything he forgot to send me a message and we also had a miscommunication last night and he thought that I was working until 10:30PM today when I only worked until 10:30AM, so he didn’t want to call me when I was working.
And tomorrow is the last day of his tour so after that…no more tired driving for awhile! Makes me happy!
ETA: We’re also going to have a talk after this about his limits in regards to driving and tours. Exhausted driving is no joke.
Also ETA: He also passed the phone around and I said hi to the girls from his tour. They said they feel like we know each other already because he has talked about me so much. Awww….

@worldtraveler: Okay, DEEP breath! We women have a problem with overthinking and going to bad places, when we really don’t need to at all. I’m sure that your SO is perfectly fine, probably just sleeping! He sounds like a busy guy! I know that it’s hard, but try not to go there. There has been quite a few times when Darling Husband is about an hour late home from work, and within that hour I am going down every possible bad road I could, for no reason. Then he comes home, and it’s all good!
Can you go hang out with some girlfriends or something to keep yourself occupied until he calls?
