im 32, I have been living independently for years. It would drive me absolutly nuts to be back with my parents. They live in my hometown of Kirkcaldy. My mum has been badgering me since she came for a visit yesterday and had me in tears and basically making me feel like an incapable child. Apparently I won’t be able to cope without having them near, I won’t be able to have a support network here, my flat isn’t suitable (I was actually down for adoption before this happened and had a flat visit which I was told was suitable so she was promptly told she is talking crap). I won’t be able to work part time and have the child in nursery etc. So how do all these other single mothers do it who don’t live near their family??? They must not exist. I must be making it up. How would she cope if I lived in another country? I said, this actually has nothing to do with you, it’s my baby. She replied, well it’s my grandchild. And I’m being the selfish one? I’m actually really annoyed, it’s making me feel so inadequate. I am NOT moving....especially back to my hometown that is dying a little bit.
