I lived with my parents’ for 40 years when younger, and, then found a place of my own. My Father is deceased, and, my aging Mom is in an independent facility. Just recently, she mentioned me moving back in for help which upsets me a great deal. If this happened, I would be losing my place and all belongings.
I fear if moving in with her happens, I will be a caregiver and have no life of my own. Also, physically and emotionally it would be hard as I have arthritis and high blood pressure.
Upon inquiring if she were serious, my Mom stated “No”, and, seemed understanding about us living apart. I’m unsure if she’s sincere, but, stated so. My Mom mentioned us arguing a lot which is more than likely true. Presently, she’s mentally and physically able to live on her own. I know she has a couple of issues with hearing and sight, although, she can still see at this time.
I don’t see moving back in with her as a happy situation, and, feel in time I’ll with physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted. Also, I will lose all the belongings that I have that make my condo a home.
