My name is Hailey and I recently got engaged over Christmas and we're getting married in July. My fiance has a house and moved his parents in with him and I live with my grandmother as I always have. But I'll be moving in with them when we get married. And even though I'll only be living about 20 minutes away from my grandmother, I'm extremely heartbrokenly sad about leaving her. She has raised me from the time I was 6 months old and she and I are very close. I'm over at his house a lot with him and his family and he'll still have them when we get married. But I'll be leaving my grandmother who has done so much for me and she has congestive heart failure and is getting older and it is killing me to leave her. I don't want her to be lonely and I'll miss the life that I have here at home.
Don't get me wrong... I'm sure he is the one and that we will be very happy together. I'm excited to be married to him and be his wife. But I'm grieving for the life I have now and I just feel so emotionally overwhelmed. Is this normal? Am I alone in this feeling? Does ANYONE have any advice that can help me navigate this and cope? Thank you.
