Quoting Lin Brown:" for now we will be moving to ringgold, but are looking into getting a house in summerville "
That's really close to where I'm from (Rome, GA). My grandmother lives in this tiny town called Subligna and it's about 15 minutes from Summerville.
How the heck did you guys pick Summerville/Ringgold?? Do you guys have family there or something?
Anyway, OP, I'm sorry he's having a difficult time and I hope he warms up to the idea of leaving home. I've lived in seven different states since 2005 and can remember how terrifying it was to start all over in a place without friends or family. We actually just relocated yet again and I don't know a single person here in North Carolina. We don't have family here either. It's daunting to think about "starting over" but the ends justify the means. Hopefully he'll realize this soon.
