My Wife is a Total Care Invalid and I’m Struggling to Make Ends Meet. – Blan

“Dear Steve,

I am recently unemployed. My wife who was employed, due to an accident is now a total care invalid.

Last year I had major surgery, was then hospitalized with a septic gall bladder and finally had eye surgery. This required me to have full time 24/7 nursing care for my wife for a period of about 100 days.

Normally I cared for her when I was not working at night. Her day care is too complex for me to handle. I had savings that all went to pay for the 24/7 care noted above. I now owe 7 credit cards a total of about $140,000 which is more than I can pay.

Second, then there is the issue about making ends meet moving forward. Are you able to live within your income and not on credit?

Big Hug!
