What is a person to do when the time comes or leading up to it when they cannot take proper care of themselves if they have no family? I know about long-term care. But what if they just don’t have the money for the long-term care and they don’t qualify for Medicaid but only have Medicare?
I developed this illness when I was 21. Medical technology was not as advanced as it is now so I had to go through a brutal test called a pneumoencephlogram [spellling?] which led to my being misdiagnosed with MS. That test is not used anymore since the advent of the MRI. Besides, it was too barbaric.
Because I didn’t know what was really happening and what direction my life would take, I never got married. I’m now almost 73 and I have to start thinking about the future. Any advice? Thanks.
