Grandma

My Grandma apparently does not want to move in with us despite my dad's and uncle's attempts at trying to convince her to. I guess she doesn't want to lose her voice. She was saying to my dad that she's afraid I won't listen to her. And that's probably true if she's talking about when she may tell me to do something around the house. I just feel that it isn't her place to be telling me what to do. It's just that this isn't her house. Plus, i'm 32 years old. She needs to ask me first not just push like my dad does. If she needed a favor or something I may be able to help her depending on what it is of course. But of course the whole thing about possibly losing her voice isn't the only reason she wouldn't want to move in with us. She has bad memories of this town from when my dad was growing up. She doesn't want the memories to come flooding back. Plus, she doesn't want to lose her independence which is understandable. I don't know. I hope this all makes sense. I just don't think my schizophrenia, depression and anxiety can handle her moving in here. It would just be way too much to handle.

I agree....that would be way too much for you and your Grandmother seems to be holding her own right now. This is good since the dynamics in the house would drastically change if she did move in. This I believe would not be good for you. Luckily your Grandmothers health is holding steady and she seems to be able to make it on her own for awhile longer. And although I believe there will be a time when she no longer has a choice but to move in...you will have gotten a job and your own place by then. Glad you have the extra time to do this...its a good thing!
