I'm older than most of you here (52) and never expected to end up in this spot. I've always had some psychological issues ( unable to tolerate touch until I was in my 30s, romantically retarded, and mostly a loner) but until 4 years ago, life was pretty good. I made and saved decent money, traveled most winters, had a hobby farm to work on, had a few friends, was in fairly good shape physically, and had a wide variety of interests. Then the crash happened. My brother screwed me out of $100K dollars and my half of our construction company. I fell in love for the first time and she milked me of a fair amount of money and broke my heart before disappearing. I had a heart attack, a bad bike crash that broke a bunch of bones, had several surgeries, and was diagnosed with arthritis. Lost my investment in another business and couldn't find work. I lost my house and ended up in a homeless shelter. Now I'm living in my van and traveling around a little. I physically can't stand or walk for more than about an hour or two per day because of a bum hip and a knee that needs replacing. Can't get disability. My mom died recently and I expect to get a few thousand from her estate. When that is gone, I don't know what to do. There is no way I can be homeless without a vehicle to live in, I wouldn't survive. I come from a large family but they are all hyper religious and have washed their hands of me because I'm not interested in religion anymore. 3 years ago a psychiatrist diagnosed me with Asburgers Syndrome but I don't know. I'd like a second opinion. So, I don't know what the future holds but it sure doesn't look good! Of course there is a lot more to my story but this is long enough.
