Growing into Me with Bipolar

Posts tagged ‘Costa Rica’

Just a Question…

This is not really a ‘real’ post.  But my kids are soon going to be leaving home, 1 year for my son, and 2+ years for my daughter.  I am freaking out about what will happen then, what choices will I have.  I am scared to death that I will end up without enough funds to even keep a studio apartment (since I will be reduced from my kids social security and child support to only my own social security).

So, I have been pondering what I may be able to do, and one of my possibilities is moving to Costa Rica and living as an expat on a pensionado visa, based on my government guaranteed income (social security).  I was wondering if anyone has ever lived abroad, dealt with visas, embassies, etc. and might have any helpful suggestions on this path.  Any input would be welcome!
