This is a good opportunity to start some mindfulness practices.
Having anxiety can be difficult, but letting it become something that keeps you from living your life is something that you should try to avoid at all costs.
Work out a schedule with your husband where you will have checkins with him (morning and evening) while he is away, so that you can still feel the connection, and then maintain your everyday routine.
(If you would normally go shopping and cook dinner, do that, simply adjust the portion size.)
As this is the first time you’re going to be alone, get through it with your regular routine, without adding any radical changes.
Then, while he is around, gradually start doing things that will help you to expand your network of friends, like going to an exercise class or joining a book club, or something, so that if he goes away again you will have a pool of people you can call on to join you for activities.
