This may seem insensitive.. but I was speaking with my brothers the other day.. and we were talking about retirement planning they are both approaching retirement as they are older than me.. I am 49... I have a modest 401k and some life insurance with my job and stage 4 rectal cancer... Metastisis in my lungs... I stated that at this time in my life with a stage 4 diagnosis... that I don't know if planning for retirement is a wise idea for me.. don't know if I will ever see retirement...needless to say that didn't over so well.. I don't know.. what do you say to people when they are discussing stuff like this.. I am happy they will have the opportuinity to retire.. but clearly I don't see that in my future.. where do you hide from these conversation.. and do you plan.. I just don't know.. I don't see a clear plan for the future.. so here I sit wondering.. as I am watching George and Clarence jump in the river tonight.. wondering why I am not.. but you know what I mean.. no bells are ringing near me.. so to plan or not plan that is the question tonight rolling around in my head...
