Hello - any advice for a newbie?Watch this post
I am a 55 year old, only child, single, childless woman.
I lived in London for 20 years and moved back to my northern home town after suffering from nervous exhaustion after both career and personal life issues. I was ecstatic to leave capital.
I have lived with my widowed mother for 10 years now - in our family home. At first it was great....mum is 'young' and we both got on like best friends, went travelling etc. She is getting older now, which brings its own issues & has come to depend on me heavily, both practically & emotionally.
I guess I have never really enjoyed being back in my home town (after London it's rather dull), but put up with it.
As time has gone on I have become ever more depressed and want to move away (as she does too - to be with me), but I don't know where to?
We have no other family or close friends. I feel trapped, alone, depressed, afraid & unable to make any decisions.
Mum says she just want me to be happy, that's all that matters to her.
Anyone any ideas? Is anyone based in North East England who still finds it difficult adjusting to life outside the capital?
Thanks for reading & hope to be checking in regularly 🙂
