And if you are a senior having to take care of a Multiple Sclerosis Jedi Shirt senior parent, it is even worse. My mother passed away nearly two years ago at age 83. I was sitting with her every day for a month and a half before she died. That, unfortunately, cut into my working income. Then, I further cut into it by spending a year cleaning out her home and getting it sold. Shortly after, when I went back to work doing twice the work that I was doing before because I needed to catch up on my income, I blew out my knee and have now been earning only minimal income for four months.
No, my mother left no life insurance. It cost me money to Multiple Sclerosis Jedi Shirt keep up her home until it sold because she had a mortgage on it. So now I am 65 and REALLY struggling. I see a lot of seniors in this same position. It is disheartening to work so hard for so long and just watch it all slip away. I am understanding what position you are in. So many are in that position, too, in Caretaking their loved one. The numbers are going to go so much higher in the next few years to come. There is no more middle class. It’s working poor now. 46.2 million Americans live in poverty. 1 in 5 families who work 2 jobs are food unstable. I don’t understand middle class… middle class means poor so just say poor there is no in-between.
