I have been married for 36 yrs. We have 6 grandchildren, two from each of our children. I am currently in a wheelchair, I can use a walker, but not for long distances. Unfortunetley for me, I went a year 2003 knowing something was wrong. Then the bottom of my feet started feeling rounded, so lack of balance. I had slept the whole summer away, literally, in 2002. When it became Very apparent I could hardly walk, I was diagnosed and in a wheelchair by 2004. Today the clouds are gone, I am alive, it's time to start living again! I am feeling numb, my spouse of 36 yrs no longer treats me as his equal. I am now looked upon as a burden. I made a promise to myself that 2010 was the year to ACT! I am now driving after 6yrs, looking for a PT job. I'm going thru my things, slowly packing. I need to get away from the negativity, the only emotion my hubby seems to feel. Where do you go, when no else wants you anymore? I'm 54, yet I feel my life is sooooooo soooooooo Old!
We live in the Greatest country ever! , you could imagine my surprise when I needed to go grocery shopping, no one would take me. To them it was easier to pick up items on there way home. I started noticing how little I was asked to get out. I was not asked if I would like to go, if we needed to go I felt as if my whole family just gave up on me. But I refuse to give up on myself! I bought an RV and am ready to venture out on my own, happily. Strangers are nicer than my own family. I never worry about traveling, Angels ARE Every where
