How am i going to manage it all. My husband had amputation half way to his knee Friday. I have to find us a place to live that he can get around in. This place is too small. Pack up the house, get things moved and emotionally support him at the same time. I just don't want to do any of it. And i only have about 3 weeks to do it. I have health issues that need addressed each day and we are both 70 years old. I am angry at him. This could have been avoided if he had taken better care of himself but i will not say "I told you this would happen". Oh well, the fighter in me will get thru this. Thanks for this space to get it off my chest.View Thread
My husband and i are 70 years old with lots of health problems and no one to help us. I am so frustrated with everything that is happening to us. We are pretty isolated from other people (our doing) and have no one but each other to talk to. Unfortunately that doesn't help. He is part of my frustration. I feel like i could scream my head off but don't think that would help. Thanks for just having a place that i can release this to.View Thread
Just writting that i am having difficulty dealing with all of our issues helped. My husband leaves everything to me to deal with and sometimes i feel overwhelmed. Knowing that i could say what i did and not be judged made me feel better. I hope this Community is a help to you.View Thread
