Hello, my 2 readers!
I trust you are well in your part of the world!
Apologies for my absence, though I have been writing in other forums / areas to still express myself.
Warning, some dark material ahead, but needed to get this out of my head…
Warning 2, my jokey norm is not in this post…
So, the last 18 months have been a bit shit with my family’s health, not my immediate family (wife and the kids, the only 2 biologically known people to me – story for another day if you didn’t know that)
I will expand further in coming posts, but the headlines are:
My mum has suffered depression all of her life, and it was quite difficult with her growing up and beyond. She really broke down with vascular dementia in the last 18 months and is now in a care facility that suits her needs.
It was a very difficult path, one I am still processing. “You are not my son” still cuts me to my core, as this was an angle she used on me in the past being an adopted kid.
That being said I haven’t seen her as positive since my kids were born. It is wonderful. She looks genuinely happy to see me. Thank you to Sue, for stepping in, when I could not.
My brother believed he had MND, which he did not.
He dropped 100 tablets at his work but was found in time.
He tried again in the hospital, cutting himself
He was moved to a secure area and monitored.
Got out, tried again.
He heads into a new facility tomorrow.
This guy doesn’t take my calls 98% of the time. I always take his, as it is rare that he reaches out. He has reached out recently.
I want him to stick around.
Thanks for letting me vent.
