I know there are many Gransnetters who have family living abroad so I thought I would ask for advice.
My sons partner is from Italy and they have talked of one day moving there and I thought I was ok with it but they are now intent on going this year so that Grandson can attend school there.
They are going today for a week to look at the school etc. When he told me on the phone I was surprised to start shaking and had what I think was a panic attack, my anxiety is through the roof and I’m waking in panic in the night.
My son has always lived close by and calls round quite often in the week and helps me quite a bit with advise and things around the house and I’m panicking that I won’t be able to cope on my own.
I feel selfish feeling this way and of course wouldn’t dream of mentioning it to him, it’s just the fear of not having him around that I’m dreading.
