TDL – I’m planning on moving back to Colorado in the next 6-12 months. I will be moving my 84-year old mother with me. An impossible goal for sure! I want to continue to help her as she ages, but not sure I can have her live with me. She would very much prefer that we lived in the same house. I’m conflicted on what to do. If I’m being honest, I’d rather she be close by, but not live with me. I feel guilty and conflicted.
I’m not sure about my T & R lines.
C: Mother living with me after the move to Colorado
T: I’m not sure I can do that
A: Worry, discuss with friends, ruminate the thought, visualize an unfavorable outcome, not think of other options, not practice self-care, not eat enough
R: Not honoring my feelings and desires
