5. Best wishes for your continued recovery. Financial complex PTSD

is a daily terrifying experience for me and DH. We've stood in those bankrupt shoes, but at this late stage of chronological existence, I have no doubt that that financial stress will eventually kill us both. Been more than a decade that I've tried to wrap my head around just what went wrong or by what criteria we've been "selected out." I suppose there's enough blame that could be tossed around, even without the hugely irresponsible policies of the GOP's corruption that sucked so many dry of decent jobs, wages, ability to pay for advanced education, and expensive decisions an "only child" need make for the care of their own Depression-era parent(s) who failed to take advantage of educational and investment opportunities. We tried to do our best and miserably failed to live up to the standards of our faux fundamentalist families or origin. Please know that I will be forever grateful if you choose candidates in the Democratic Party who have policies that can assist boomers, now seniors, and/or their kids in Gen X and Millenial groups, and even those more youthful, i.e., our grandchildren, whose parents did not benefit from corporate America's advancement into the Age of Information we embraced too strongly, leaning all the while on American values that were pitched but not acted upon or completely obstructed by the GOP in so many ways. Please don't say to get some professional help - they push expensive pills we can't afford and call us out for having hubris as if we ever thought ourselves elite or privileged - yep, we never accomplished anything worthwhile while claiming life, liberty, and responsible pursuit of happiness one actually said. My energy and mojo is tapped out. Plans for the future are laughable as we slide down the slippery slope of aging. I am counting on you to make it work now and in the future! Here's to your abundant financial security, growth, and good fortune!
