I am taking care of my mother part time and live alone about a half hour away. We have a history of bitter fighting but are getting alone better now. She is increasingly needing more help due to spinal stenosis and mobility issues. My lease is up in Sept and I am $7000 in credit card debt. The only way out of that is to move in with mom. When I left today I felt so much love for her. She is my best friend. She has another caregiver on my days off. I would have the entire lower level of her townhome to myself. It makes sense but based on the fights we had while on a week's vacation together I have my reservations. It seems like a good idea because she is lonely and it would be comforting for her to have me in the morning and overnight. Also, she is controlling and would need to know why i'm leaving the house so i'd have to explain my whereabouts all the time. I'm afraid I'll end up hating it there but I need to get out of debt. Maybe deep down I know its the right thing to do, I don't know.
Anybody regret moving in with mom or worried about it then once you've moved in, it's been fine? I have some time to decide. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
