18 Cities by the age of 16

I moved around so much in my life. I think I’m up to 40 cities now, and I’m only 31. Sometimes people start looking the same no matter where I am. It’s been hard becoming stable because I never had a home. I have now lived in my current city for one year. Congratulations to me, for sticking it out this long. Anyone else have problems with moving?

I moved a lot when I was younger. All over Texas, New Mexico, and Louisiana.

I moved a lot when I was young too. Mainly because my father was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam war. As a young woman I moved fairly often too. I got more settled as I got older. I’ve been living in the same city now since 1996.

Nowhere near 40 for me. Counting both mental health housing (not hospitals) and private housing I’ve lived in about 12 cities and about 20 different houses or apartments.
And I’m 58. That ain’t much moving.

I got y’all beat.

In 23 years that I’ve lived in Canada, I’ve only moved between 4 cities.
