Response to raccoon (Original post)

Tue Feb 18, 2020, 11:46 PM

20. i'm nearly 72 and I am still changing diapers etc on my handicapped

child. Two of my kids said they would take care of handicapped sibling. One year they were very gung ho on the subject but now have said 'no, we ain't doing that'. So I have lost my pride in them. And now I worry about how my handicapped child will spend the rest of life. That is the toughest part of growing old.

Ps. no problem with money. There is plenty of that and health care. Just need someone to oversee others doing the actual diaper changing and writing the checks.
