What also sucks is the Zyrtec losing its effectiveness after a while and then you have to switch to something else because your body has built up a tolerance to it.

Getting older also means you can't leap out of your bed and scream "A-HAAAAHH" anymore to wake up. If I do that, I either pull something or my legs buckle out from under me.

you should start lifting weights

sorry about your dad, echi.

if they catch't it early, it's very curable. bowel cancer runs in my family, and I know I shouldn't hestitate to see a doc if I'm starting to have weird stomach problems. also ready for uncomfortable screenings starting in my 50s.

thanks dude


turns out he had lymphoma in 2019 and didnít tell anyone wtf. this is actually a relapse and itís not bowel cancer but a tumour on his bowel from the lymphoma


at least thatís what I know now. need to find out more. itís an awful situation mostly because of how poorly my dad has treated everyone in his life and the amount of disdain everyone carrys for him. apparently my mum just told me he left her for other women five times . idk why she let him back tbh. heís an awful granddad. my son said he didnít feel sad because he doesnít have an emotional connection with him.. a man he sees 4-5 times per week. im about the only person left who has any patience for him at all.

anyway. itís friday night

my old man bought it from lymphoma.

wife managed to fly in from japan with our 1 month old son the day he died. probably the last lucid moment he had was telling my mom to gently caress off when she tried to pose him for a photo with the baby, lol.

miss the grouchy old bastard all the time.

i had dreams for months and months after my dad died that he was still alive, that he'd faked his death because of some kind of tax dodge or something (he never dodged taxes or anything remotely like it)

i don't have any regrets about things i wish i'd said to him or anything like that, but i do regret that like my mom and everyone that was around weren't more up front about the fact that he was dying. everyone was in a weird kind of denial about it which queered things in a certain way. although honestly i don't know how much of that was on him, he never really brought it up either.

i do hope when i die i've got the capacity and opportunity address it directly with everyone around me, but maybe i'll feel different at the moment of truth. i think it would make the transition a lot easier on everyone involved.

yeah they do hang around a while, don't they? i lost my dad almost thirty years ago. we weren't close, and he was in many ways a giant rear end in a top hat, but i still find myself having one-sided conversations with him in my head. mostly of the "why the gently caress were you like this" variety

I kind of understated it, my father was a fuckin monster and I deeply regret not murdering him in his sleep

my dad was enough of a dick that i didnít cry when he died or anything but i sort of regretted the fact that i never had good parents

still threw me for a loop three years after his death to be looking at the farm in google maps vr and (completely unexpectedly) see him looking at the road as mapvan drove by

I got lucky in that regard because my mom is fuckin awesome, although I do feel really bad that he was able to so effectively drive a wedge between me and her with his mindfucks once she finally loving left him.
