So why am I in prison?
I, Don, am going to write this page as myself - First Person.
It explains a major reason why I live in Ukriane. I want to delay old age as much as
possible and I enjoy every day of my life but I also know that if I am not pro-active, my
last days will be spent in prison rather than my home.
It is tough to be an American. I started working on my
father's farm at 7 years of age. At 10 I did a man's work, except in the winter when
there was less work but even then there were 2 hours every evening of chores. So I
worked 60 full years. Mistakes - abolutely, I made a few and the most significant was
to marry the wrong woman, to marry for love rather than thoughtfully. I raised 4
daughters and 3 of them are decent human beings, so that was not a mistake. But now
my sister is dead and my brother loves a Xiden voter so I cannot count on him in a pact
to take care of each other. I do not want to be a burden to my 3 good daughters,
unfortunately I am likely to live longer than 1 of my daughters and the other 2 are not
going to want to take care of a stubborn old man. They will do as I and my brother
did, put Dad into a nursing home when he can no longer live by himself. If this is not
what I want, and I don't, then I need to Prepare myself. I do not want to live my
last 18 months in a tiny sparse room at night. I do not want to stand watching
the world through a window during the day because the door to go out is locked and
alarmed, as my Dad did. So I need to be proactive. And so I have been, I have
moved where a nursing home is unheard of.
I sold the 4 bedroom house in the suburbs in the USA and I went
looking for a place where I could be safe, self sufficient and prosperous in my
retirement. Where I could find someone to care for me in my old age, without being
a burden on my daughters or trusting someone untrustworthy enough to have voted for
a pedophile and a Communist whore. To be honest I was thinking that I might find
a wife who would love me in Ukraine. Instead I found Tanya, my best friend.
No, Tanya will not care for me in my old age, I will not allow it. She might bathe
me but no way would I allow her to change my diaper if I ever need one. Her job is
to find someone else to do the less pleasant tasks of taking care of an old man in his
apartment - and to make sure they do not abuse me.
Elder Abuse - The Dirty Secret of US Nursing Homes
Old men confined to a nursing home frequewntly become
suicidal. It is tough for a man who worked all his life to feel useless. But
instead of giving such men something productive to do, nursing homes lock the exterior
door so old men cannot leave. Then they take the lock off the old man's "private"
room so he cannot have privacy. This is elder abuse. Most nursing homes do
Old people, both men and women, are still people. Normal
people need physical contact with other normal people. But this is forbidden in
most nursing homes, particularly those run but the Catholic Church. Even if not
expressly forbidden, lack of privacy makes it impossible, even for a married
couple. Can anyone even imagine a US nursing home allowing an attractive woman
to visit an old man and give him a massage? I didn't think so, this is impossible
and so the old man spends the last few years of his life without any human contact.
This is elder abuse.
Now with COVID and quarantines families are not allowed to visit
their incarcerated parents and grandparents. It is OK for the governors of New York
and New Jersey and Michigan to put COVID patients into nursing homes to recover and murder
tens of thousands of old people by doing so, but it is not OK for a mother or father to
be visited by their families. Even the internet is denied to the inmates, God forbid
that someone might have to help them with the keyboard. Yes, some nursing homes now
allow inmates to have a cell phone but cell phones are not elder-friendly as the screens
are too small for old eyes and there is no real keyboard. This is elder abuse.
