<<If you got the money and support and strength and health to make the change. If you hurt all the time (arthritis) and have limited finances and no one to help you make the change back to where your friends and family are it isn't so easy... especially the money part.


Well, money can certainly be an issue.

But I'd guess a bigger barrier is that people get surrounded by the junk they've accumulated and can't figure out how to move it or get rid of it.

The answer to that is really to hire a big dumpster, put all the junk in it and then move where you want to go with one suitcase. I'm sure people will find plenty of junk wherever they might choose to move.

And I say this surrounded by junk myself, but at age 69 I have no immediate desire to move.

In a few more years I may resort to the dumpster, though.
