Hi everyone, The "only daughter" thread compelled me to write about my own worries. I am wishing I could get some insight to this. I lost my dad in 2006 and yes I am an only daughter settled abroad with my family. My husband and his brother are 2 sons and my inlaws though quite old live in Calcutta and are managing themselves. This year I went to India and noticed how annoyed and difficult to manage my mother has become. We moved to Dallas and had to sell our house and I had to leave my job. I was constantly subjected to insults like, you guys are homeless now, your husband is a transgender, you are jobless and depressed. Then came the heart crushing part. She started mentioning, how I haven't been there for her when she needs. How the neighbors show off when she asks them help. How she manages living alone. She does work and teach kids to pass her time. I discussed this with neighbors and they did mention that she means well but has become a little hard to handle. It could be that she is depressed living alone. I came back here and checked for possible options. 1. having her move in with us...but if she does what she did in Mumbai. My husband will be annoyed. There would be constant fights in our house. 2. Looking for a nice retirement community. Where she can pay and stay and be worry free. 3. Me leaving my husband and move there permanently with my 7 yr old. Downside to this is my son would have to leave his father for no fault of his. 4. My husband is open to the idea of sponsoring her and she having a small house close to us but health insurance in the US will make her and us broke. 5. Asked her to move closer to her sister. She wondered if her sister passes before then she will be left alone again. Issue is I don't want her staying alone there anymore. It is clear she is craving that added security and with me being an only child and looking for a job right now, my options are few. What would you do in my situation??
