I've read some of the stories and wanted to share a little of mine. I'm 57 my husband is 72. Last 10 years have been hard, but the last 5 have been devastating physically, financing, emotionally. Etc. We've lost our home to foreclosure and now we're in the process of taking bankrupt. At our age I never thought this would happen. 5 years. Ago my husband became sick with kidney stones, major infection, Mercer, I could go on and on. We fought through. This and he was getting better, but when he went back to work, they lethim go, no warning, no sseverance. Pay, lost insurance and even received a letter stating that the company had fallen on hard times, and the money they had matched in his 401K he would lose. Medical bills were hugh and income w as cut in half. I thought we could work tthrough this someway, but my husband changed drastically. He Tokyo the bed, became sick again with a lot of health issues and major depression. I was taking him to 6 different doctors and in and out of hospital. As of today he does nothing butstays in bed, gets up to eat, and iI wait inhuman hand and foot. I've threatened, said ugly things thinking that would snap him out of it, but nothing has h e'er lord. I'm now bitter, angry and honestly.just want out. At 57 years of age, I've given him my best years announced one knows how long they have on this earth, but ever how long, I just want peace and happiness if possible.
