Just a wee bit of a crisis.

4 Comments

Today was a real roller coaster ride emotionally.  My father woke up in pain very early this morning (he has a chronic illness) and started feeling a sense of despondency as well as his own mortality.

Mom freaked.  She doesn’t deal with death very well, or letting go of anything that has no immediate and apparent solution.

I’ll say there was some real communication problems that resulted in a lot of messes.  No, I don’t care to elaborate.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.

  1. I am sorry, Jak. I hope that tomorrow is better. Parents in crises is a hard thing to deal with. I am dealing, long distance, with my mother's depression at having to move to a cottage in a different city at an assisted living place, with my father. She is really having a hard time.

  2. Oh, no. Is your dad okay? I know all about those kind of messes. Take care. It can get better. For real it can.

  3. Yeah, I think he'll be okay, but they're still needing to do a ton of scans in addition to all the ones he's had already. He's having to use a walker and can't sit still to read or do anything much.

  4. My mom has been using a walker for about a year, but isn't walking much any more at all. She's been in and out of the hospital quite a lot. I know it's hard, especially when they're in pain.
