Considering a move to be near family

Recommended Posts

So I currently live with my boyfriend.    My daughter lives close by.  She is 20 and very busy with college and a boyfriend.  :)    My parents, whom I have always lived closed to and have always been my biggest support, now live 6 hours away in another state, as well as my brother.  My boyfriend is not understanding of everything and I honestly think hes tired of hearing it.  when I mention something about a med or a way I am feeling, it goes on deaf ears pretty much.  

 

I don't have some crazy good job or career to hold me here.  and I miss my family terribly.   while a move of that magnitude seems like an undertaking for someone who just sits on the couch feeling sorry for herself, I kind of also think it may be good for me to be near my family again. 

 

while I understand it will not make my symptoms go away, maybe just the comfort of being near them will help. 

 

what do you all think of it?

Visit for a few weeks and see how you feel?

if I could take the time from work I would.   I do go to visit them, as its only 6 hours away, but I feel I need to be near them.

OK. The reason why I suggested that is it's easy to idealize another situation and then get there and realize it's different than you thought, especially if you're making medication changes. I wasn't saying to visit as a solution, but as a test to see what it might be like.

I see what you mean.
