    You look so pitiful laying there. It breaks my heart, watching you lay there, a shell of what you once were. I wish you could answer me. I wish I could ask you random questions and be able to hear you respond, whether you're right or wrong. I wish you could look at me. It tears...

    She passed. Glioblastoma.

    When we received the terminal diagnosis in October I made my peace with it; Or so I thought. Watching her go was the toughest thing ever. But knowing she will have no pain anymore made it acceptable. I cherish every memory. Regret every argument. I said thank you all along the...

    I Think I Might Have Lost Everything

    I was never the good kid in my family, I was the the middle child. Not the worst, not the best. Not the oldest, not the youngest. I was the child who came home late at night to find my father listening to the police scanner. He always said it was not to listen for news about me...

    My mom is dying as I type this.

    I just lost my friend to breast cancer in May, another to throat cancer in March - and one to suicide a year ago in September. I'm so tired of people I love dying. It's frustrating. It's overwhelming. It's devastating. It's defeating.
