Re: How do I tell them?

He is going to be on the east coast...so just about as far away as you can get.

I was taking care of my parents while maintaining a separate home before they became in need of live in type care. I had a husband and 3 daughters in school. I worked full time and took days off to take my parents to the doctor. I came home after work and made enough dinner for them too and drove it over to their house.

My husband and I were working but we did not make enough to buy a big enough house where we all could live..parents and all. My mother said she will buy a house that is big enough if we will live there and I could take care of them. Since I was running myself ragged trying to maintain a job and two households I thought it would be a good idea.

After a few years my husband turned to drugs and turned our financial situation into a nightmare. I divorced him and he left.

The years have just been passing by and the burden has become so much more than I could have imagined. I know they may not have much time left but there are no guarantees for any of us.

Thank you for your reply rosequartz...you have given me much to consider.
