This has been a very challenging year. At 5 years out I thought things would be incrementally better. That's not the case. Fallout from IRS tax issues left by my late wife and then financial decisions I made to try and resolve the tax issues only made them worse. As I approach my 59th Birthday I wonder if I'll ever be financially secure again. My new wife of 3 1/2 years is struggling with health issues that have seriously impacted our quality of life. My now adult kids are doing ok but I am unable to be there for them financially and my oldest is moving to Australia for a year in 2 weeks. I just keep getting up and putting one foot in front of the other. It's a small thing but I just got the mail after my fourth move in 5 years and got mail for my dead wife....again. Really??? "Congratulations on your new home!!" Really...???
Just venting here. I've always been the one to help my family and not having the resources to do that now is incredibly demoralizing.
2017 I'm ready for a paradigm shift.
I'm good now.
Sometimes it still sucks.
