I have been giving thought to my mortality lately. Today I finally watched this movie, I have known about this movie for many years but was not able to see it. I found it for free on the internet today. I will pay a $ penalty for using more gigs than my internet plan allows but it was worth it. I almost had a good cry but it didn't happen... Although, I am now feeling some anger and resentment, "why her? or why him?, why me?!?" How did my husband end up with a mother, father, and wife that are all terminally ill? His father has Waldenstrom's, his mother has progessively recurring pituitary tumors, and me, Systemic Scleroderma.
Dear Husband and I made a pact 20 years ago (before I knew I was sick) that we would enjoy the journey and not sweat the small stuff, even when money was short. Now both our fathers are elderly and we are facing their mortality too. Our mothers are also aging. How ironic that I now hate my birthday but I am so grateful that I am not as sick as one can get with sclero?
I guess I gave myself a swift kick in my behind today. I get my tooth fixed tomorrow and will reschedule my overdue lung and heart tests.
No, it's not my little toe that hurts, but too many other pains have crept up again in the matter of only a year or so.
I am not in immediate need but I feel the urge to get things in order.
I guess I need a will (lol I have no money to speak of, and the majority of our major purchases in the past few years including vehicle and house are in husband's name) so that is good.
I have a great godmother for my daughter, a loving and hands-on parenting husband and my mother is still quite active for her age (except we now live 3 hours away).
I had life insurance at one time but have been denied after that ended. Do I need and can I even get life insurance?
I am on SSDI, is there any benefit to my daughter or husband when my time comes? I guess I know my research next week while little one is in preschool.
Can anyone tell me items I am missing?
