I need to see my mother! I lost my job 2 years ago when my attorney/boss was in a terrible car accident.
We had to close up his office, and I have been unable to find a new job since then. My unemployment ran out over a year ago, and I have been living off a roommate and the money my mother sends me. I've used my entire savings, sold my jewelry, pawned items of value, etc. I haven't seen my family (mother, father, 2 brothers) in over 3 years now. My mother is in her 70's and has been injured in several falls lately. Her doctor has diagnosed her with Parkinson's and she now uses a walker. I just have this horrible, nagging feeling that my mother could leave this world and I won't get another chance to be with her! I just want to be able to travel from Illinois to Florida to visit with my family for a week or two, and have the opportunity to be with my dear mother. I am unable to do this with my current financial situation. And I know that once I do finally get another job, I won't have any time off available for at least another year. So now, while I am unemployed, is the ideal time to go spend with my family. I just don't want regret not seeing my mother again after so many years. It worries me constantly!
