Inflation Ate My Future
For decades, inflation has been outpacing wages more and more, I never wanted to be rich, but only to be comfortable in my old age. I have worked very hard my whole life, sometimes holding multiple jobs. I also took care of my aging parents for several years. Now, the little that I have saved in mutual funds keeps shrinking, and especially with health care costs still bankrupting people, I feel like I just don't stand a chance. No matter how hard I struggle, I will probably end up a bag lady.
