OK, this is a very long story.
I am 14, and I live in Alabama. My dad (who I lived with alone at the time) and I lived in Michigan. He sent me to live my grandparents down in ALabama until he could move down. This happened about 2 years ago. He never could move down due to problems selling the house, etc…
Eventually, my mom moved down, and I lived with her. I saw my dad semi-frequently (once every few months for about a week at a time)…and it hit him hard. My dad has been severely depressed since I moved down. Me and my dad still have a very strong relationship, much stronger than my relationship with my mom or anyone else in my family…
After school ended this summer, I went up to spend this summer in Michigan. I soon grew “attached” to being around my dad, and when the time came to go back down to Alabama in late July, I decided to stay up in Michigan until just before school started.
Now, I’m faced with a dilemma. I don’t know whether to stop living in Alabama and go back to living up here or going back down to Alabama. Staying up here would definitely be the best thing for me to do when it comes to my well-being and my dads well-being, but it’s a huge step to take, and there’s no going back. If it means anything, Im closer to my family up here.
First of all, I’m not all that popular at my school. I am friends with many “popular” people, but I don’t really play sports, nor am I in extracurricular clubs, so I’m not a really popular guy…I have maybe 60 friends in a class of 240, and I talk about 150 of the them. I know about 3 people up here, who are old friends.
Can you just give your opinion about this situation? I’m not getting any sleep, I can’t, all I do is think about this.
Maybe it’s better I got this off my chest…I just really need some help fast, seeing as I leave tomorrow to go back down to Alabama (the tickets are refundable).
