Please DONT fund me.

I have 🐝 n a member here since 2008. A year after my huband died. I used to post regularly, but all those old posts disappeared. Then I read but did not post after trump was appointed. I fell into a deep depression. So anyway Ive been around for while and I have been proud of this community that is always so going and kind towards other.

I jut got back from visiting my sister in Oregon, not having flown for over twenty years, my fear of flying thwarted me, but I hadnít seen her in three years and I missed her. We have always been close. She offered to buy me a plane ticket.

About ten minutes after I got back from my trip pI had a head on collision with another car. My fault going the wrong way on a one way street. I remember nothing about the day, flying airports....
My dog was in the .car and she hit the windshield.
The airbags deployed. My car is totaled. My daughter had to take me to appts this week, but she is a full time college professor and canít always do it.
I thought about asking you all to help me get a cheap car. I told my daughter I needed one, donít like the loss Of independence.
ďMom, with your rheumatiod arthritis getting worse and your lack of muscle control, do you think you should be driving anymore?Ē
Sheís right. At this point Iím a menace to society. Getting old sucks.

Donít fund me

1. I'm only in my 50s

but my night driving is not very good anymore.

To quote the kids: "I feel you"

I keep hoping that driverless cars will appear (be somewhat affordable) and will save me.

But you're right...it sucks .

I'm glad you are okay. I hope your puppy is, too.

Yes, life can really suck sometimes - I'm so sorry for that nightmare you had to go through.

4. You're right...

getting old does suck but I always say it beats the alternative. Itís great you got to spend time with your sister!

My mom has dementia and does not even remember what I told her two minutes ago. Iím sorry about your car and hope your dog is okay. It has been hard for all of us to not be depressed since the last election. We just have to make sure we vote and get every democrat we know out to vote this time as well. Iíve seen several people offering free rides to the polls on Election Day. I would love to do that if I was off that day.

Iím fairly new here but because youíve been here since 2008, you know how nice and caring everyone is. Itís hard to give up driving but one of those things most of us will have to do if we are lucky enough to be around that long. Iím thankful you have your daughter and that sheís able to take you to your appointments. Just know that she wants to do that. I take off to take my mom to hers as well when I know I could ask friends or relatives who would be happy to take her. I like hearing first hand how sheís doing. Your daughter is no doubt the same.
