Where to start, my girls and I moved to AZ for my partners job and we all fell in love with it there. My middle daughter has suffered with severe skin conditions her whole life and I myself have suffered with really bad allergies. Not only did we love it there but all of us also benefited in some form or another health wise. I no longer had to deal with allergies that would lead to bronchitis or ear infections at times. My middle daughters skin conditions cleared up 90% of the way and became way more manageable. Everyone as great, until it wasn’t. My partner became a mean drunk, started looking at and saying inappropriate things to my middle daughter, and wasn’t very nice my my youngest daughter. When I told him the relationship was not working and that I felt it wasn’t a healthy environment for the girls and I, well let’s just say we found our selves being kicked out of the house we rented and moved in together when we moved out to AZ. At this time Covid had cause the housing market to double in this area making it virtually impossible for us to get a place to live in there. We we’re forced to move 2,000 away where family and friends lived. Spent 4 1/2 months going from home to home and hotel to hotel. Putting in bids to purchase a home, well, all over. Finally one of my bids was accepted in an area we never lived in before, pensacola Florida.
So we bought a house and finally have our own place again. But the truth is we are all miserable in one way or another. My middle daughter chronic skin conditions have come back full force, her and I are dealing with different forms of depression because we miss home (AZ), my allergies are worse than ever, and most importantly my youngest daughter is suffering health issues. She has lost all her eye lashes and eyebrows, a patch of hair missing around her hair line, developed some kind of nervous tick thing she does with shaking her head, among some other internal health concerns. Many doctor visits and blood work, one of the doctors think it is stress/depression and her body is attacking it’s self due to this. I had no idea she was missing AZ and was that unhappy. I knew she had been though a lot this past year but she always “acted” like she was happy and okay. I would try to get her to open up and talk to me but always got the same answer, she is happy and likes living where we are now. The doctor started asking her questions about AZ and it took everything I had to not start crying, she finally opened up and just wants to go back to AZ. She misses the mountains, the weather, the wildlife, her school, her friends, and how nice everyone was there.
I know what I am wishful for would take a miracle, but you never know until you try. I’m hoping to get enough money so we can move back to AZ in the same neighborhood we use to live in. Now with that being said, this neighborhood isn’t some kind of richly rich type area, just your average medium income kind of area. The average house was costing around $250 in this neighborhood BEFORE covid. Now the average home is easily $450k. I am a single mother who does not receive child support and can not afford that. I’m hoping to get $200k to put down on purchasing a house in the area which will bring the mortgage loan down to an amount I would be able to afford and sell the current home we have now here in FL. Because I just bought this house about 6months ago, I will be lucky to be able to sell it and brake even on the deal. I’m not looking to get rich, make a buck, just to be able to move from one place into another.
