This site is supposed to be about the aging, correct?
1400’s through .....1940.
Is this site advertising “Give us your grievances?”
Who is benefiting if the elderly live longer than nature intended?
Who is it affecting?
My parents, aunts, uncles, never gave a thought to their parents.....they died, in their 50’s, 70’s.
This was “24” aunts and uncles.
My first experience upon questioning my cousins.....after 1975.....
Her mother needed help.
She told me she took her in.
Two weeks was all she could stand.
Her Mom went directly to a Nursing Home after that.
Yet.......in 2019......we are monsters if we don’t take them in, provide A-Z, despite absent siblings, forget we raised our kids and feel, maybe, this is our time.
Everything, centers around financial......get help (what if you can’t afford it?), join a support group.....Maybe you are totally spent......you have endured too much.
Are you responsible for telling them to soak their feet, so you can cut their rock hard toenails that are now curling?
Are you washing all their laundry that has feces?
Are you criticized if you don’t spend 12 hours a day sitting with them?
I sincerely hope, some of these things resonate, make you realize.
And, it is on your mind, the only thing that will release me, is death.
