What will it be like?
Ok...now that I've whined and complained and talked about how miserable I am, has anyone thought about what lies ahead for you? Boy, I have.
Unless we die in an accident, nuclear blast, etc., we will be in similar situations. What are your thoughts?
I really try to have compassion and pity. Most of the time I feel like if I wasn't so busy having a pity-party myself, I could be more useful.
I KNOW that our family members hate what has happened to them. They don't tell us about the *stuff* (from the other thread) cause it's too embarrassing and shameful.
My husband and I have already recognized that there will be no one to take care of us as we (no, honestly it's not a man thing)I have cared for others. As much as I love my children and hope they love us...it's just not *in* them to do what we have done. The self-sacrificing and family commitment is not a part of the current young adult generation. Or, maybe I'm wrong. What do you guys think and what, if any, are your plans?
