~ Challenges of moving to be near my children ~
Hi to all my friends here in this group. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve been here …. so many reasons which I won’t go into. Life down here in VA has not changed ….. I realize it was a mistake to move down here, only 20 miles from my X, but I do thoroughly enjoy being with my two daughters, and my son when he drives down from D.C. My kids could not be more dear. It’s only because of them that I stay as I don’t like living here. I drive up to MD to see my therapist 2x a month, and I am working on finding a Psychiatrist down here for the medication part. I am still looking for a part-time job, as I need the extra money, but at 73, a lot of employers picture a little old lady who can barely function. That’s why I’m going to just start to show up at places where I would be interested in working. A non-functioning, little old lady I’m not! My medications seem to be keeping me fairly stable right now, with the usual ups and downs of Bipolar 2.
We’re to get about 24″ of rain from this hurricaine with flooding and landslides. We back right up to the Blue Ridge Mountains, so everyone is scurrying around getting gas, water, money …… hopefully it won’t be as bad as they predict. Landslides around here could be a disaster for many, many, people.
I’ll be back …. it won’t be so long next time.
