Hi, things are not going well right now with my difficult child and I. She does not want to come home, she wants to stay with her foster family. I want to move out of state, where the weather will be easier for me and better with my arthritis and fibromyalgia. I live in Illinois now. I just want to leave. I had wanted difficult child to come home and maybe we could have a new start. It's not going to happen. I don't know what the state of Illinois is going to do to me if I do leave. I am always thinking the Carolinas somewhere even though I have never been there. I want to be able to drive to the ocean at least once a week, so it can't be that far away. Can anyone in that area tell me what the job situation is. I do clerical, and switchboard type of work. Nothing on my feet with my knees needing replaced. What is the cost of a 1 bedroom apartment in your area? My landlord just told me he's selling the building that I moved into in April and I will have to move by April 1st. Wasn't expecting that but I am ready to get out of here.
