I am 42, female, recently separated after 10+ years of being married, and recently moved to a new city where I have no friends. There is a possibility of health-related issues in my future (indolent form of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, treated with radiation and maintenance therapy, 2 relapses after two 3-year periods of remission, currently in remission).
What kinds of plans should I be making for the future?
In a previous AskMe, for example, someone had mentioned needing another person to accompany them for surgery. I am sure there could be other problems like this that I am not aware of (or thinking about), that I would like to plan for. My Mom lives several thousand miles away, and in any case I would hate to ask her for help, my Dad passed away this summer from cancer and I have a sibling who I suspect will not help me out. I foresee being single for the rest of my life and even if I did have a partner, I think it is wise to make these kinds of plans anyway.
Any other advice of a practical nature is welcome. I want to move on from being bitter (this
is me, several months ago) to being more positive and practical about the future.
Thank you in advance!
