We have been estranged from our daughter for almost two years l know that’s not long compared to some ,
But this virus outbreak has brought everything into perspective.
The other evening l realised how alone we are, my brother died last year , my husbands only sister is 70 and lives on the other side of the world and l doubt we will ever see her again.
We will have to make out a new will as the one we have leaves everything to our daughter, since she divorced two years ago and was left a very wealthy young woman, she met a very controlling Younger man Who is in total control of everything.
We were always so close she phoned two or three times a day
We used to see them three times a week.
She stopped us contacting our grandchildren , who we used to see or speak to most days,
Ex Son in Law used to FaceTime us when they were with him,
our youngest who’s four said Nana why don’t you take me to school anymore?
My heart broke in a million pieces that day.
Then when our daughter found out she tried to stop the FaceTime, thank goodness he stood up to her .
But now he has a new lady in his life and the contact has stopped once again,
I wonder if they think we don’t love them, we can’t even explain why we can’t see them.
The virus brought everything home to us that we have no other family, and few friends.
We don’t socialise as l have Secondary Progressive M S so l can’t get out as l used too and you find friends fall away .
I’ve also found myself thinking l hope my husband goes before me,( Dreadful thought l know ) but he couldn’t cope and wouldn’t know where to begin . I would have to go into a care home .
The question I’m left with who will sort thing out ie funeral home clearance the things that have to be done.
Sorry for sounding so defeatist but lm really at a loss for answers.
Going after the economically disadvantaged!
