I went to a financial advisor today, because apparently I need to pay someone to prod me into being responsible. She was quick to uncover that I am resting my future on a shaky foundation. Obviously, you don't keep your eggs in the same basket with your former spouse. I left the appointment feeling thrilled to be taking the right steps and scared about the trauma to come; though it's quite possible it's only in my head. I need my own security. I need to make a trust, assign benefactors, durable power of attorney, etc. Life is so frigging complicated.
