My husband is a sound recordist my son is grown up and I am very lonely as he works away all the time my husband that is.Now his elderly mother is demanding of him in any spare time he has and she lives 100 miles away.This has shifted the balance for me as he naturally wants to help his mother so I barely see him at all.I don't know what to do .

I am sorry to hear of your loneliness. I would talk to him about how you feel..not in a way to put pressure on him when I am sure he is feeling pressure taking care of his mom and also traveling. Let him know you love and miss him and desire to carve out some special time for the tow of you when he is home. He may be so busy with the work and mom pressures that he just isn't aware of how it is impacting you as well. Go to him with love and care in your heart and let him know you miss him and want to be with him.
