The life of a trucker isn’t an easy one. There are long hours, long distances, long waits, and long periods of loneliness. What’s especially hard is being away from family for days, weeks, and sometimes even months. That separation can put an emotional and psychological strain on anybody behind the wheel of a big rig.
