Life Miseries

by Mike
(Houston, Texas)

After going through all these comments I am 68 years old, married, severely depressed and anxious due family stress living like the disabled having a 61 year old depressed and sick wife, living with married son with his wife and 3 kids all boys under 12 age.


Since I was diagnosed with major Depression and other sicknesses plus my wife sickness, we started seeing major attitude and behaviour change in my son, his wife and family.

It seems we are now becoming a burden to them but we also have no other options. I worked my whole life and gave my son all I had in my small biz, house, cars, etc.

He is doing good with biz too.

Life is really a puzzle. How everything turned around at the passage of time when you become physically and financially weaker then all blood related values abolished!!!!!!!

What to say about this cruel world. Every one have their own problems of survival so whom to complain rather age limit to live life should be a choice of person to keep it or leave it.

It's amazing to hear the elderly point of view. I wish there was a section on this website for their entries.

I totally have sympathy for your situation. If I wasn't taking care of mom, I don't know where she would be. Honestly, she is so blessed to have me in her house.

She is catered to and completely safe and secure to the day she dies. The elderly are so vulnerable. I wonder what will happen to me when I'm old.

I can understand your son's situation having two dependent parents in his home with three children and probably both parents working.

He has a huge stressful burden. But you and your wife didn't ask for this either. I can't imagine what it feels like to be in your shoes. Sometimes there's just no answers.

If it helps, continue to write in and vent. That's all that most of us here have anyway. There's always many sides to a story. Getting yours may help the rest of us.
