    in late May I interviewed for and was offered a new job. This should make me happy as I separated from my previous emplywith severance the end of March and this will allow me to have some money to put towards other things.

    My problem is that I just can’t get excited about it. I have two weeks TIL I move and I have yet to pack a box. I know I am not shackling myself to this job forever but I struggle with change and this will mean changing all of my medical and mental health caregivers. One specialist I may not even be able to be referred to with the new insurance.

    Lastly I worry as my youngest heads off to college this fall I will for the first time in nearly 30 years moving somewhere by myself where I know no one. I worry that I am making a mistake.

    I think that's a worry that anyone would have. Moving is overwhelming and scary, as is having an empty nest. When I moved (locally) I didn't feel right until I was well settled in. The adjustment period is much longer for me. But, rather than thinking negatively...perhaps this change could bring some unexpected positives? For example, maybe the service providers will do things differently than the last and you may find it more helpful?

    @Stephernovas the challenge will be finding service providers period. I am moving to a rural community of 2,200 ppl a minimum of an hour drive to the closest larger city that will have mental health providers and three hour drive from my neurologist specialist.

    sounds like a call you'll have to make for yourself
