That doesn't include anything that makes me feel better, such as pain meds. I do take two blood pressure meds plus a statin. I also take dicyclomine for left lower quadrant pain. I am gluten sensitive and developed the LLQ pain after a colonoscopy that diagnosed microcolitis. The dicyclomine prevents muscular spasms, which are probably what caused the LLQ pain.
My ex-husband is in nursing home with Lewy Body dementia, and the wear and tear on our two children--especially my daughter--is painful to see. His money won't last much longer than 2 more years and he will have to go to Medicaid approved home then. I don't want to use up all my resources for a memory care place and leave nothing to my kids. I feel that society keeps us old folks--who used to die from heart attacks or cancer--alive for much too long, and I want out before I lose my mind.
