I don't know what in the world I was thinking. Certainly not about my retirement. Honestly, I never expected to live this long. Back in 2005 I had a nice little house in the Florida Panhandle a good running SUV, I had shop full of tools which I had used to renovate my house. Best of all, I had a very, very low mortgage. Then one day I ran into a fellow who was back in the states from the Philippines. He and I spent much time together during which he told me all about life in the P.I. and all of the women there who wanted a foreign BF. At the time, I felt I needed a new love in my life and it looked to me that moving to the P.I. could be the answer to my prayers. Well, to make a long story short, I sold my house, SUV and all else I owned and off I went in search of adventure and , hopefully a new love. After living in the P.I for 7 years and spending most of my ready cash, I still had not found a true love. Yes, many GF's, but no true love. Whatever my fate was to be, it was not in the P.I. I took off again and went on a short journey thru Hong Kong, and Thailand. Interesting but not my cup of tea. So, onward to Egypt where I spend 5 weeks touring all of the ancient monuments. Fast forward to 2012. I ended up in San Diego and I was shocked to discover the incredibly high prices of rental apts. So, thinking that Tijuana was the right choice, I moved there. Certainly the relatively low cost of rentals persuaded me. I must be a slow learner, because I still had not considered that an aging person could quickly lose his health. Now, at age 77 with diabetes T-2, a major bowel disease, nearly all of my hearing lost, and very very heavy leg pain on walking even a 1/2 city block, and all of my money gone, I am attempting to live on minimal SSA. Now, I am stuck here. No where nearly enough money to return to the USA. Some unknown health problem is keeping me from getting a full nights sleep. Every 2 hours I need to get up to pee and many times I just can't get back to sleep. Result, over-whelming fatigue all day long. Heck, I can't even afford to pay for a doctor to diagnose my new issue with major leg pain . I had previously seen a U.S doctor who told me I had diabetes and IBS-D (the bowel disease). If I had some way of living in a senior hosing complex, in the U.S, I'd grab it in a heartbeat. But the waiting list is 8-10 years long. So, I am STUCK, just hoping I'll die silently, painlessly and QUICKLY. Hopefully in my sleep ?
