I'm 50 years old and I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up. I was married 25 years to a man who decided to just let me do it myself. If I am doing by myself I might as well be by myself so booted him out the door 3 years ago. My mom who was my best friend and sounding board passed away 4 years ago and I still feel this huge gaping hole in my chest. My father who is 85 depends on me to take care of his finances and even though he will not move in with me I have to keep an eye on his health also. I have been in the same job for 11 years which I love but feel I am limited to that one job. I have no college education and feel that I cannot just pack up and go somewhere else and make the same money. Not that I make a lot of money but I can at least pay the bills. I have 2 grown children who don't really need me any more right now. My daughter is trying to ave a baby and really wants me to be close. I have a new boyfriend who loves me and is probably the best thing that has ever happened to me. But he hates Florida and wants to move. I would love to move home to Tuscaloosa but I just don't know which direction to take. He is an RN and can go anywhere and have a job.I'm scared that I wont find another but the main thing is I cannot trust my brother to take care of my dad and my mother made me promise I would. I just feel stuck.

Sounds like you already have a paying job as well as a family job.<br />

If your boyfriend really cares about you he will stay and make it possible for you to fulfil your promise to your mother.<br />

You actually have a paying job, that should make you more grateful that 15% of your nation !
