I believe I can help you with your concern
I am so sorry to hear about your mother's illness, I can understand how this is a difficult period of your life.
On a personal level, I currently have a close family member getting treated for cancer, so I do understand what you are going through.
I know that it would be a sacrifice personally and financially if you went to the Bahamas to visit your family during the holidays, but I think it would be important for you. Most likely the dream you had was more about your subconscious guilt that you may be feeling if you do not go and that is why you dreamed she may be get sick again
It's just really hard for me to go home because I sacrificed a lot financial when she was originally sick and I am just rebuilding my life and savings so in a way I want to move forward and live my life again with my boyfriend
I think going to visit your family during the holidays would be something that you know is the right thing to do and that your family would greatly appreciate. You and your boyfriend have the whole rest of the new year to spend with each other, this is only for a very short period of time and hopefully your mother will have many more Holidays in the future, but in reality we never know.
I understand that, I think that you may be feeling guilt inside and your dreams are trying to tell you something. If you do not go, you may not enjoy your vacation as much as you would like.
I understand what you're saying. My boyfriend says he understands if I go and says we should hold of on paying for the cruise until we know for sure how I feel about going home. He said if I go home he will go home because he hasn't gone home in about five years because of his job
So I think both your family and his family would appreciate this. I mean you and your boyfriend spend 99 percent of your time together, it does not hurt to visit family and be a apart for a little while then
I'm also sorry to hear about your family member and I hope everything goes well with his/her prognosis. It really is difficult
It is difficult and I am like you, I am being the caretaker. So I was like what you were for your mother, and you are right it is a sacrifice
I did get some extra money recently so perhaps I will spent Christmas with my family and new years with my boyfriend and his sister
I think that is a fair compromise and I know financially it will be difficult, but I think it would be something that your family appreciates and something that you will help put your mind at ease too
I agree. I will talk to my boyfriend and make the arrangements. Thank you and I wish you the best as you're assuming a new role in your family.
Anytime, I am happy that I was able to help you and give you some guidance on this issue. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
