I lived in the USA for 39 years, and always said, when my children were finally grown, I would move back to the UK, as I was never happy in the USA. I finally got that opportunity, but now all I do is cry, because I miss them all so much, even though my girls' didn't live that close to me, and my oldest son, now lives in LA. Only one son, lived with me for financial reasons, but at 28 he wanted to be more independent, and got the opportunity to move in with an old school friend, when I sold my apt. But I feel so guilty, even though I am now with my sisters' and brothers, I feel I abandoned my children, even though they say they wanted me to move back, as they knew I was always unhappy. Thankful for the Internet, Whattsapp, I talk to my younger son, most mornings, and there's Skype.....and yet, I missed my sister's when I was over there. My twin sister had Cancer when I was there, and now has been diagnosed again; so I am so torn. My children have been very supportive and loving, and try to reassure me it's ok, but I am so extremely SAD as to where my loyalty lies.
