Well if you have seen the pics I posted from the chesepeak energy thread you already know what my home looks like now thanks to big business. I found out yesterday that all of my family that moved down here from Michigan 3 years ago with us,have decided and are moving back to Michigan soon. This includes my daughter , husband and 2 granddaughters the I thnk the world of. My mom, brother and sister in law, and kids. Thier kids are in thier 20's and stll live at home. Well they have all decided to go back because they miss it!!! Well so do I , more then anyone knows, but unfortunatly my DH says no way is he going back to the land of ice and snow. So he drives truck and is gone much more then he is home and already I am getting really scared cause I have no other family here, no close friends that I could count on and the last thing I want to do is live here basicly all alone. I hate being alone, scared of it especially now with all the racket and all the guys that are less then 500 feet from my home and do not want to even be here anymore. I cried the day away yesterday over all the trees and my family leaving. husband has NO pity about all of this says he is not a family kind of guy, and I think he thinks that we are somehow going to be rich off all of this. We have not seen more than 1 check in almost 1 1/2 years for the "royalties " for less then one hundred dollars and there is 7 gas wells on this road already and I am sure there will be more before it is done. I am tired of worrying, tired of feeling so alone with no one to talk to about this and I feel like I do not belong here. The Only thing that keeps me here is the 24 chickens out back and not having any way to move them or any where to go. I sometimes feel so hopeless and I feel so friendless and isolated here. It does have to get better right? I keep telling myself that as I sit and hear the 4 bulldozers roaring from 6 am to 6 pm 100 feet from my house, but I am beginning to not believe it .
