No guilt, it feeds in plain sight


All of my grandparents are dead, my mom is dead, I could call my dad but I didn't even know his name until I was in my mid 20s so gently caress it he can call me.

My mom once asked why I never call her and I said "would YOU want to call you?" and she was like "fair point."

Well, I've got brain damage on the side of my brain, and I don't know which side, left or right, where I huffed gasoline for ten long years.




My grandparents stopped taking my calls because I kept trying to comfort them in the twilight of their lives by explaining that there is nothing to experience after their death, nothing to be scared of, because they simply won't exist and will lack the capacity to feel any despair, regret, or fear. They will be like a candle snuffed out in immeasurable, silent, dark oblivion

It was supposed to help

When I was a shithead in my 20's, I just stopped answering calls from my only living grandmother because I knew that if I answered, I'd be on the phone with her for an hour or more, she just loved to talk about anything, and eventually she stopped calling. I think it was a defense mechanism after losing both my parents, that if I didn't really know her, I couldn't ever lose her. I felt like poo poo about it later and since the only family I had left was a sister three states away, a brother in law, niece and nephew, I said gently caress it and moved to be close to my grandma and granddad.

My grandma got to have her grandson visit her three or four times a week for the last three years of her life and we got to have those phone calls I selfishly declined, face to face, out at dinner (pre-Covid), or out on the porch in the summer breeze.

You don't get them forever, so give them everything you can while you can. Pick up the drat phone.



Unless they've actively been total pieces of poo poo to you, of course.

I call my grandma twice weekly because she's 94 and I'm lucky she can still hold a conversation. Talk to my mom/dad/sister via text daily, phone a few times a week. OP's message is a smart message, you don't miss that poo poo til it's gone

my grandparents are dead op, and my parents and brother turned into racist conspiracy lunatics after the covid19-BLM combo attack and i haven't spoken to them since june due to how unpleasant interactions with them became

it sucks that i lost that family connection, but also it's been a great source of stress removed, so in conclusion it's a land of contrasts

I call my mother on a regular basis, dad and all grandparents are dead so too late there, but I spent a lot of time with my dad and talked to him at least weekly for most of my adult life before he died so I did okay on that at least.

Cancer sure does suck.

If I had kids and they called me I'd be like "ugh what do you want" so I pay my own parents the same courtesy.
