Hello,I am 55 yrs old ,an only child,and have no children,I 've been divorced for years,both of my parents have passed away and to make matters even more depressing,,I'm disabled. I get around and can pretty much still take care of myself,however I just found out I have some broken hardware around my spine,and I'm going to need yet another back surgery to get it repaired, and possibly more extensive work may be required. Either way,back surgery isn't anything to take lightly ,or something im looking forward to facing all alone. I've been divorced for many years ,my ex husband and I tried to have kids but weren't able to,and the years just seemed to slip by,until one day,I realized I'm 55 years old,alone and lonely and not getting any younger . I have no idea what I'm going to,as even when I've managed to get through another back surgery ,(I'm hoping that this is the case,anyway).then what? What am supposed to do with myself,if I'm able to get thru another surgery,recover enough to continue taking care of myself,and life just goes on as before? I'm becoming very worried about what I'm going to do.
