This is so very hard for me...

Sunday, July 21, 2013

It is becoming so hard on me here lately to make this decision about my future and where and how I want to live out the rest of my life.

I have avoided this issue for so long. My brother is now playing the worst case scenario card on mom NOT ever getting out of the nursing home.

I love my brother and sister in law and the girls and I love where they live, OK....but, they are so isolated from everything out where they are that they themselves even have said that they do not go anywhere.

And for me that is not a life I want to live. I want to be able to socially interact with my friends and other family members.

My brother has even said that he hates going to where my other members of the family live in Louisville, KY because he hates how they put our family down.

That is NOT the life I want.

I want to be able to see my friends and my girlfriend when I want, I want to keep my job at Cracker Barrel. I mean I have been with the company for less than 2 years!!.

What should I tell my brother?.

My meeting on determining all of this is tomorrow and my brother and sister in law are picking me up early as the meeting starts at 10:00AM.

    Lance I think you should keep your independence, your job, your girlfriend. Talk with your caseworker about how to make that happen.

    I would think that you are able to make your own decision although I must admit that I do not have a real grasp on what your situation is...caseworkers? and can't you speak with your mother's medical caregivers to find out for yourself if this "worst case scenario" is likely to happen? Thoughts and prayers are with you.

You can and should make this decision for yourself. Praying and thinking about you.

    Tell him this is YOUR life, not his! He needs to grow up and leave you alone.
