I Am Afraid No One Will Care For Me

I have been pretty ill from the flu and pneumonia. I was even hospitalized from it and am afraid that if something worse happens, no one will take care of me.

I rushed myself to the ER when my family left me on the couch for days not so much to ask if I was ok. Not until I was missing the next day did someone text me to ask where I was and why I was even in the hospital. Really?

Oh, it's like no surprise. There have been many times I felt that if I didn't stick up for myself, protect myself, care for myself, no one else will. Why is this? And how should I truly feel about this? Is this a "just suck it up and drive on" moment or am I really on to some greater concern here?

All I keep thinking about is when I am old, who will be my true companion? If I am not able to care for myself, who would? I feel so alone and unprotected.

I am married with children. I am really hurt by this overwhelming feeling.
