I have been working lately on my paperwork for "Adorable Power of Attorney" in appointing my sister to be the one makes decisions on my behalf. I'm 37 years old, male, never married, no children, living single. Only children I have are four legged. 4 cats and a pug.
Lately it has been on my mind what if something happens to me, what will my family do. How are they going to know what I want if I'm unable to communicate or take care of myself.
My friends have sat back and have laughed at me when they have come over to see the paper work sitting out on the table. They wondering why am I dealing with this. Told me I'm way too young to have to worry.
I sit back and have to think of the times I have had lows when no one was around, waking up from a low and being totally out of it. I've had some really bad lows where I'm in the 20s.
I worry about the issue of not waking up or being in a coma. I worry about my family not having some kind of a guide to what my wishes are along with who will handle my affairs.
I'm wondering how many out there have the same feelings and what actions have they taken?
