Oh no... Your father would be feeling extra lonely. Such a huge loss to deal with, and on an unfortunate day.

You're right. He's taking it pretty bad. Drinking way too much. I got him some prescription THC chewables (like edibles but sort of like vitamins).

Especially since there was a chance he could have been rehabilitated and he was supposed to see a pulmonary specialist the day he died but since they pulled life support he didn't. Quietly, some in my family think they should have waited for the specialist to give his/her opinion. Obviously, it was his choice but he was heavily medicated and his close family members most likely didn't reiterate he hadn't seen a specialist yet because WHY WOULD HE NOT WANT THEIR OPINION?? Those family members were talking about pulling his life support a week before he died...and he did not have life insurance because of a heart condition. So no nefarious monetary motive. Maybe a motive of being lazy and not wanting to deal with his rehab but not money.

The whole thing is tragic. He was only 68 which isn't young but not that old. He was also in great shape and looked 55 max.

I remember the moment my mother told me "I'm done, I want to go". I could have chose to respond negativity but rather I chose to respect her and her wishes. She passed 4 months later - she always was a determined person. Sometimes you need to respect the wishes of others even when it's going to hurt you.

I'm starting uni from Year 1 next month, aged 22, AND I'M GOING TO BE LIVING AND STUDYING MOSTLY WITH 18 YEAR OLDS.

They're going to look at me like an old drying fossil.

And that is awesome. You’re living the dream! I had no idea you took a four-year gap. Have you been going from rager to sex party all this time?

I didn't take a four year gap, I dropped out, went to uni, changed course, dropped out, and have been travelling in between all of this. Suddenly its four years since I left school. It's all a bit of a mess!

I've been going between Thailand and India the last seven months or so. I'm in Delhi atm, not much sex party happening here x

Sometimes dropping out is the best choice. I wish I had had the balls. I made some good friends in college, but that's an expensive way to make friends. Better than sex-for-pay, I guess. Take the helm and hang on with both hands!

Cashier at work started talking today about trying to set me up with his gay friend. I just want no part of that but am terrible at saying no to things.

"No, thank you," is one of the most powerful and respectful statements available. Just say that. You don't have to explain yourself or expand on that reply. Smile and say, "No, thank you." If they protest or persist, smile and say, "No, thank you." If they continue to press, you might drop the smile. "No" is a powerful response, and "thank you" softens it with a dose of respect.

After about the third "no, thank you", I will shift to "Fuck off!!!"

I joined grindr the other day, just because really, and apparently all you have to do to get messages is turn your location on. Then I realized the first guy to send me a message is the married guy I work with.

In ways your location is always on in Grindr to a point.

The hurricane off the coast of Florida is predicted to land just as I'm due to fly out. Expecting disruptions.

Hopefully your flight will sneak out before it hits. Be prepared to sleep at the airport, and stay safe!

Seems like there's always someone you know that'll find you on Grindr, I'm part of a enthusiast community and it didn't take long for me to be found on there actually met up with one, bit pissed off that one who said their lips were sealed but couldn't keep their big mouth shut so literally everyone I know within a 20 mile radius now knows I'm gay which isn't too bad but family still don't know and I'd rather they hear it for me than something said on Facebook or whatever.

Tuesday, Orlando airport has said they're shutting from Monday. They might change their minds but if they are shut we will either be delayed or redirected.

In the dream there was, but I only saw a few seconds of it.
