I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with just removing themselves from their situation by intentionally moving away?
My depression is at an all time low because I am having to move (due to neighborhood issues) from a house I love. I've been looking at real estate here and never find anything that measures up. I'm heartbroken at having to sell on top of other grieving that I'm going through.
I have wonderful friends here, but only a sister who is too busy to really be a friend.
I have a good friend where I would be going so I wouldn't be alone.
My plan is to sell and go away for the winter and hope when I come back I'll be able to figure out where I want to live here. My move wouldn't be permanent.
Or has someone done this and it still is difficult coming back.
I'm not a kid, I've just taken early reirement. Still grieving a broken relationship and know that will never change. It seems I should be wiser due to my age and be able to figure this out. I feel like I have a big hole in my heart.
This all feels like fear and I become paralyzed and do next to nothing. Yesterday, home all day I just cried and ranted to myself all day.

I say go ahead and move away if you have a friend there already. I am doing just that in a couple of months. If you decide you don't like it you can always move back.

Welcome to the forum,I am very glad that you found us and I am sure you will find the support that you are looking for.

I had to move 3 years ago. Away from my ex husband who decided to move about a block away from me. It was horrible.

One thing that my counselor told me in one of my first sessions that I have never forgotten is in order to get better then you must change your environment. That was about a year before I finally had enough guts to get a divorce. I try to remember that when things are not going well and I can feel myself sinking lower into the depression.
You have to do what you think is best for you.
