Older Folks Don’t Always Have a Support System

One of the biggest myths about growing old is that by then you will have a support system in place. Sorry folks that often is not the case. They often look around and wonder what happened? It wasn’t supposed to turn out like but it has and it’s brutal. Sure those long time church friends play a vital role in helping you keep some sense of sanity. Otherwise there would be no hope. You hope one day it will change but at your age the odds are really slim. So you keep plugging away at it knowing that your fate is pretty much sealed. Your just waiting for that train to hit. The thing is you never know when it will hit but it’s coming and there is nothing you can do about it.

  1. I don’t know exactly how to respond to this, Mike. I don’t want to sound trite and quote platitudes that are meaningless. Sounds like you’re hurting – what kind of support are you looking for, exactly? There is so much available — depends on what you need right now. Lots of times people think folks are just fine and aren’t aware that they need support. Sometimes you just have to reach out and ask . This probably doesn’t help much, does it???
