I've been writing this blog for a LONG time, and I know I often talk about things that might make people feel uncomfortable--that's the road I've chosen to travel. I have other blogs, on other subjects, and I often get negative comments on those. But on this blog, NEVER have I had anyone say anything bad...until now.
(I'm not talking about spam--I'm talking about rude.)
I recently did a post about what Alzheimer's cost my family in terms of Social Security income.
This is what someone commented:
"Some people don't think about their retirement thoroughly. And they take
important steps before thinking about it twice or asking an expert."
WHAT?! My dad retired because he had ALZHEIMER'S. Did you miss that, jerk? And my mom retired to be a CARETAKER for my dad, who had ALZHEIMER'S.
There is nothing to "think about thoroughly" when you are sick with a fatal illness, or your spouse is.
