    Feeling Unsettled - Is it related to Grief??

    Thanks for your reply.... Yes at one point my mum wanted to come here to live despite her age I do have a lot of "stuff" that has accumulated on my life journey, but yes I did feel settled at one stage, but I guess not at the moment? By no means would I jump up and go at the moment anyway as I realize that these feelings may subside? I have got my citizenship so that's all good Yes pensions are something that I would need to look into if I make the decision. I have spoken to my husband, who is an Aussie, but he thinks its all due to the grieving process?
  2. I've not been on for quite some time so apologies if there is already a thread on this........... So, i moved from the UK in 2007 and have lived in Melbourne ever since, and felt fairly settled. Then in April this year my mum who lives in UK died. I have spent a fair amount of time in the UK between November and May of this year. since I have returned to Australia I have felt very unsettled and have had thoughts of returning to the UK to live? Ignoring the UK weather, once I was there I felt that the UK had become rather shabby but apart from that I felt that I belonged, and felt connected and felt like I was home. These thoughts have not left my mind for a few months now, but I am wondering if it has anything to do with the grieving process? I seem to have been weighing things up in my mind and realize that in the time I have been here, since 2007 I have made not one single friend. They're a friendly enough bunch but I cannot seem to form a friend relationship and feel lonely. I am married and my marriage is good. I am 54 years young and wonder whether I am feeling my age also? I'm a bit confused!!

    My query was with the person that posted that not very welcome post. Yes I am a bit fragile at the moment, and could do without such comments from Bunbury, just a pity people cannot be less critical. Thanks anyway Fisher. Hope you are ok now

    Thank you for replying without judging or criticizing me, that is NOT what I expected on here!! Shame !! I have not posted "much" on here without going into the whole "story" and wondered if that was a good idea, but reading "other" posts I'm now glad that I didn't.

    I do think this is a bit harsh to be honest.....i thought this the best place to come for friendly advice. You know nothing about me or my family or my responsibilities so please do not judge me.

    Yes but her health is terrible, she is being looked after, would that make a difference?

    Thanks, she is very independent so a lot of those options are out, and hence as she is still sound, then that is why we feel we need to get her over here before she does really start to decline. I posted here in case anyone had been in a similar situation....? Also, as I said earlier she has no family now, only a sister that does not speak, and no friends

    It's nothing serious, just age related stuff and she is of sound mind!!
