Oh yes, I am a worrier about the future. But above every other question I would have I have one. My son is under the autism spectrum and even though he is progressing well, is young and getting a lot of therapy, I still worry if he will be fully independent. My first question would be if my son would become a fully independent adult, having his own car, home, job, etc... then my next question would be if I would still be married to my husband LOL. He is getting on my nerves galore tonight and he has been doing a wonderful job of that lately!!

Hello Sarah!:-) Very interesting question and one that I would like to be true!:-) If ever, I could sit and talk to future me, I would like to ask about my parents, my partner, my son, my other family and my friends, if they are doing fine and what issues they have? I know I wouldn't be able to do anything about anything since, otherwise, it wouldn't be a true future me, but I could at least prepare my mind, if I am going to have some loss. There are few people, I hate to out-live, So, I would see if my prayers are granted until that period of time from where my future me visited.

I would just want to know that I have enough money and stuff throughout the years and any serious health problems we may have to deal with...

I don't want to know how I will look or how my life will be when I am older but I have often wished I could visit my self in the past and talk to her, to say that life will get better and to give my former self a more positive outlook. I would like to be able to tell my young self that life will always be difficult but that I will learn and grow stronger by facing the difficulties. I want to say that one day I will be proud of who I am and that I should not feel any less worthy than anyone else. When I was much younger I thought I had no future. I would have loved to have known that I would have so many adventures and experiences and that I would learn so much.

This is a really great question. I think I too would want to know if I continue on in my current situation. Would I have more money in the future. Am I really finally done having kids (I've thought so twice before and surprise!). I'd also like to know how my kids are doing in the future. If they graduated and went to college. Are they working and making good money. Did I achieve my dream of being a gramma (with 5 kids I'm almost positive that will be a yes). I may also ask for some stock tips or lottery numbers :D

I wouldn't know too much about the future, it might spoil the surprise, and I wouldn't want to feel like I'm living my life according to some blueprint. Having said that, any investment advice would be much appreciated. ;-) Apart from that, I'd trust Future Me to know what - if anything - to tell me. He'll have my best interests at heart, after all, plus the benefit of experience.
