gb84 posted a topic in Law, Money, and Employment -- Send Lawyers Guns and MoneyI received an invite from a company that I had previously applied to, for a week of paid training at their headquarters. Basically I would receive airfare, room & board and training to become a bicycle technician / assembler. The catch is the job would be full-time and I haven't worked full-time since 2014. The other catch is, I might possibly have to relocate, although they say I have a preference in where I go. So I could possibly get a position at the store that is only about a 15 minute drive from home. This is kind of my dream job ATM. I ride my bike on and off-road a lot, and have been trying, unsuccessfully to get in at a store where I could learn to do the job being offered. Right now I don't see how I could relocate. With the money I currently get from SSDI I pay all of the bills except for the mortgage. I live with a parent who is handicapped, and possibly in the early stages of Alzheimer's. I know I can send money for bills, but I am worried they would actually get paid. I also have two dogs to take care of and I can't part with them. If I moved, I wouldn't be at home to make sure my parent is ok. Neither of my siblings, who are somewhat close have ever really done anything to help, and one has a full-time job and the other run's his own business. I get it, they are extremely busy, but it's not fair that someone with my problems should have to take on everything. I would love to do this, but I am scared. I want to be on my own again, I can't take much more of watching someone I love deteriorate. I also realize I don't do well living alone, it's depressing and isolating for me. But if I had my dogs, it probably wouldn't be so bad. What would you do in this situation, what should I do? Thanks for reading...
