My wife left me in March of this year. I sensed that she was plotting to leave me for a while before she left. It was like that feeling that people get when their partner is having an affair. I ignored the signs in the hope it would just go away.
I still see my wife as I am her registered Carer. So to some extent she has not entirely left me. A lot of the issues we had was as a result of me suffering from work related stress. I have had a number of jobs over that last few years that I have left through stress. I have looked for work in other fields but have not been successful. I sent my CV to a number of agencies and received a call to say that they had vacancies in my old type of employment in a neighbouring county. I was a bit apprehensive about them sending my CV out but felt a need to get back into full time work.
I have the offer of a position with an employer in a City that is about 50 miles from where I live. It would be a fresh start. I would be unlikely to have any dealings with people that I worked with previously. I am due to attend a second interview for another firm in the same City. If I were to take one of these out of area positions I would have to move.
If I took the position I would have well paid work doing a very prestigious job that took me years to train for. When doing my job search I was really only looking for a local job that paid moderate wages. I have failed to get jobs that pay only about half the salary that I could earn.
I really feel that I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I do not like being on benefits but have not been happy in my current line of work. I get very anxious if I am a long way from home (more than 3 hours away). I am finding the idea of moving from my home to very scary. I also in my heart of hearts want to get back togther with my wife. I really miss her.
Any thoughts that you may have would be appreciated.
