I closed my business, sold my home on South Beach and moved to rural Tennessee where I don't know a soul so that I could afford to provide a safe environment for my aging father (90 yo). After several months here, he decided that he hated it and went back to Florida where he is now in assisted living, something I never wanted for him, but he seems completely content. So, I'm not a "mom" except to my two rescued cats and my two rescued dogs. I gave up what I needed to give up to provide for my aging parent and if given the choice again, I would do nothing differently. My job prospects here are bleak, but the quality of life it provides me and would have provided my father are worth the things I gave up.
