If you don't want to talk to a counselor you can always talk to your doctor. Depression is extremely common and so is anxiety. You may want to consider discussing medication. Change is very hard. If you can, try to communicate your feelings to your husband, you are a team and he can help you if you let him. If he knows your feelings on not wanting to move, he may take that into consideration. If you do end up moving you could work something out to spend your vacation times back at the place you are now to keep in touch with old friends. My husband might have to take a job over a thousand miles away, that would mean us living apart at times, and an eventual move, away from all of my family. I do sort of understand that it is hard. I would be leaving a career of teaching that took me years to get into, as I started at age 40. I do know that everything will be O.K. Consider at least discussing this next time you go to your doctor. Take Care, Bellski
