Towards the end of May, I moved back to Oklahoma after spending the past four months in Connecticut. I thought I would have the chance to get a decent job since the job market is better and I would be able to reconnect with my family. Well, there have been problems. My family doesn't want to see or talk to me or have anything to do with me. My mom can barely look at me, dad doesn't care if I live or die and my grandmother is going out of her way to avoid me. I have no home so I'm having to crash on whatever friends couch I can find. I've had so much trouble putting a roof over my head that I've lost a couple of jobs. Now my friends are abandoning me because I want to get my living situation stabilized before I continue looking for work. I have children, but to see them I would need to spend money that I don't have to get a lawyer and convince a family judge that it's a good idea to send them to see someone who has no address or money and her entire family has abandoned her. As a result, I'm starting to feel like I have nothing left for me here in Oklahoma. Well, last week, I contacted an old friend who I hadn't talked to in five years. She's moved down to the Dallas area and we're getting along great now. She invited me to stay with her down in Dallas. Like I said, I don't have much of a reason to stay in Oklahoma anymore; my friends and family abandoned me, I have no job, no home and no good prospects for either. And everything here reminds me of how hurt and alone I feel. I want to be surrounded by people who care about me but I don't feel like anyone here really does anymore. I've had some people tell me "You can't run away from your problems." but, to be honest, I just need to have people who care about me around and I just don't think I have that here. Does this move sound like it could help any? If I go down there, should I move to stay there or should I just go for a week or so to clear my head?
