I live on support only, a very small amount. I'm 65. I have had to have a roommate (just a friend) in order to live someplace. My daughter just got married and bought a house. I have lived with her off and on since my divorce and love her more then life itself. I'm the one who lived 30 in an abusive marriage and have PTSD.
My roommate and I are moving next month and the only place we can find that is nice and within our price range is 150 miles away from my daughter. We both want land, trees, look out the window and see deer. So we found it. It broke my heart to live so far from my daughter. But I love the outdoors.
Now she tells me.....there is a place very near her, a very nice house with a normal back yard and she is willin to put in $200 each month so my roommate and I can afford it.
Because she is going to have my first grandchild next year and wants me near. OMG!!!
My roommate refuses to go back to the city. I totally understand. I hate the city too. But this is so hard. Obviously without my roommate I cannnot afford to live at either place so I have no choice but to move to the country which is what i want.....but finding out my daughter wants me, her mom, near her when she has the baby is tearing me apart.
I feel awful about this. My daughter is all the family I have. So I thought maybe driving down 1 week a month would be a good idea. Any other ideas????
I took an unfortunate fall When the paramedics arrived, they had to break in the back door. Sounded like a bomb going off. All three cats ran out in panic. I then spent 3 weeks in the hospital. A friend put out food both in and outside, but no inside food or water was touched. When I arrived home, Rust was in the backyard, but would back off as he neared the door for several hours. ...
