Here I am awake today and stuck thinking about the struggles in life. A late night text form my youngest son was very upsetting as he was very much expressing disdain for me. It seems that my son's are distancing themselves from me. I want the best for them, but it is difficult to go any distance. I could make it to see my oldest who is just under an hour away, but even this takes it's toll. My youngest is over 2 hours away and while I really do want to visit relatives up in the area, it is just plain hard on me to do that. With the many health limitations that have hindered me, I still want to find some form of work. The biggest problem is that most employers are leery when they know my age and health limitations. So what are you thinking about today that are 'roll over' moments?

@Berniezeitler That is good. My husband and I were just turned down for Medicaid and we are to young for medicare. So we have an appointment with the insurance with the state. So I hope we get that. We can not afford a lot of money.

@suzzy3 My youngest is not doing well financially. I have helped him with that as much as I could. Saved very little of a nest egg I had in order to help them both. No bus needed. I just would like to hear from them more that's all.

Oh that's not nice at all for you. I live 2.5 hours from my sisters and 4 hours from my mum and it's me that does the visiting no one comes to visit me. It is hard to find the time and the money as every time we visit it costs a fortune x

Don't dwell on it..kids today, are a strange kind of selfish, and often expect to get without giving too much of themselves, often making you wonder, did you as a parent get it wrong, or is it a consequence of a materialistic world.....
