• Apologies for the issue with a bizarre redirect on the site earlier today. There was a large server update and an error in an IP address had the traffic routing wrongly. No hacking or anything nefarious and nothing to worry about. Sorry for any stress/anxiety caused. Very best wishes - SF Admin

Hey, there's nothing to be sorry about.
just feeling like things are getting more crazy. another person close to me may have medical issue. I've gone through looking after a spouse previously until they died. Im not sure how I'd manage to do that all over again. financial concerns which are a huge worry atm. I'm no spring chicken and find it hard to accept this is where I am in life right now.

So sorry your spouse died. I've never gone through that but my best friend died (((((hugs)))). I can relate to having financial worries and I am 52 and really find it hard to accept where I am in life too.

That all sounds rough. You also sound very strong although you may not feel that way right now.

I'm sorry for your loss. I know it may not be my place but there are solutions to situations, financially. I've lived in various situations with my children even, and it has worked out in the end. Thinking of you.

You might be able to give support to this person while also respecting your own needs and limitations. Do you feel like they are expecting you to become their full-time care giver?

You're welcome to say more about that if you'd like. If you want suggestions about how to handle the situation, we may be able to offer some, but it's also ok not to want suggestions.

Hugs
