I have joined this community as I now live in a nursing home as none of my family want me.  I am 69 and was a good mother and wife with a lovely home.  It seems,  if I can't "pull my weight" any longer, I am not wanted.  I am heartbroken and my only friends and family now are care workers and nurses.   I suffered a rogue embolism last January and been lame ever since.
