    Taking A Fall

    Yes. It is a dangerous thing, cancer.
  2. The past two months have taken a toll on me. There has been a lot of change. 11 years ago my mother passed. At the time I lived in Connecticut, but one call changed it. Not even a year later my father called and asked me to move back home. He didn't want to be alone. I was 40. Moving home seen the end of my dating, a rare night out every six months or so, and running to doctors for him or me. I had eye surgeries, a triple bypass, and felt the pressure to keep him going. I heard him tell people I was lazy, stupid, and not helpful. My self esteem nosedived, but I put on a smile and did as needed. This year he had nasal surgery on polyps that were growing. Then issues with his blood pressure. He took a fall in the bathroom and cut his head open. Two weeks later he woke throwing up blood. Failing kidneys, liver, retention of fluids, lung issues and more within his last weeks of life. He passed on last Friday, 14 hours after being taken off life support. He was finally buried on Wednesday. I had to handle everything alone because my brother lives in a high covid state, Florida. The emotional drain has been enormous. So for 10 years I have been the caregiver and my life has been on hold. I have to readjust how I view and do things. I can date. Who wants a broken down 50 year old? The door closed and a whole wall fell. Once I can figure out who I am, maybe I can live for me again. Sorry to ramble, just needed to vent.
  3. I am sorry to say I will be MIA for a bit longer. My father passed away on Friday and will buried on Wednesday. Been a rough few months.

      It’s hard when someone who’s been with you all your life is no longer :(

      So sorry for your loss, Wayne :hug:

  4. Feels like forever, but I am coming back. My father has been in and out of the hospital for various reasons and is now home recovering. Doing my best to get back to my life. Hope everyone is well.

    I have seen work place romances crash and burn and also go on to become the things of legend. I think it truly is up to the people involved. Sorry this story didn't work for you, but it was a Valentine's Day Secret Admirer story. I hope you find something more agreeable for you.
  6. Man, I miss ya! Been catching up with peeps from the past! How you been?

      Been dealing with issues my father has. Finally able to breath. Will finally be back around. :kiss:

  7. Thank you. Basically was just looking to vent so I didn't wipe out the food in the fridge. Last two weeks have been stressful.
  8. Thanks Val. I'm just trying my best. Can't catch a break. Keep me in your prayers.
  9. Okay, so approximately two and half months ago my part of the world shut down. Public transport became empty, restaurants shut down, doctor offices closed, and life as we knew it came to a standstill. My job also closed but I was lucky, the pay kept rolling in. Then a month and a half in the company furloughed all part-timers and 20% of the full timers. However, once again I was lucky and the pay keeps coming in. They decided last week to reopen. We are paid for 36 hours and any hours we actually work we get an addition $2 an hour for. I am not complaining. After three years of health issues, I have been blessed not to catch this. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean everything has been great. Back in November my dad began to complain about his sense of smell. He was going to see his doctor and a lung specialist. He had been put on a nebulizer and figure that might be the issue. February rolls around and he heads to see the vein doctor and again is having issues and mentions it. The vein doctor suggests dad go see a nose, throat, and ear specialist. Enter Covid 19 and the close down. The second to last week of May, dad wakes me at one am. He is in deep pain, in his eyes. I call his eye doctor, who calls back before two am and has us meet her at her office. She states dad has an infection in his eyes, prescribes meds, is grateful that we listened and didn't take a chance to expose dad to covid by going to the hospital. Woman is a saint of a doctor. We feel things are looking up. The last week of May he finally gets to see the doctor for the nose. He finds my dad's nose has a lot of growths and has basically sealed the left nostril and part of the right. He doesn't do that surgery any more. He sends Dad for tests and an associate who works 30 minutes away, towards the city. The second Doctor sees the growths but also believes he spots a tumor and wants us to see a brain surgeon and go for better testing. The test was last Wednesday. There is a tumor growing behind the nasal passage, warping the bone between the nasal passage and the eye socket. However the brain surgeon is in Great Neck, minutes from NYC and has my dad panicked. He wrote the first doctor back begging him to do the surgery. He stated he doesn't handle that. He agreed to find him another doctor to handle the growths, not the tumor, and he is going to have them removed this Thursday. He wants to cancel the consultation with the brain surgeon on Friday. Meanwhile I am now stressed out, eating things I should not, and trying hard to just keep myself going. I was lucky to have two beautiful people help with a story I'd written for the Anthology but never managed to get fixed in time. I'll get it up when I can. Just didn't want things to crash and burn but they did. Wish me luck. At 81 my Dad is stubborn and a trip into NYC probably isn't going to happen.
  10. Well we made it to the end of May. Who knew it could seem to last forever, but here we are. I have to admit, I have new prompts to distract you. Prompt 846 - Creative Tag - First Line "If you touch my child, I promise you, death would be considered a prize in the world of pain I'll create for you!" Prompt 847 - Creative Tag - Demon A month after signing the deal the demon shows up on your doorstep in the middle of the night. "What do you want?" You demand. "Look the deal is null and void," he began. "The hell it is," you scream at him. What deal did you make and why is the demon trying to cancel the deal? So, these are the latest bits of bait I have to entice you to write. If you do, please link them in the prompt forum. Until next time remember to read, write, comment, and like. Stay safe and well. We did have a taker on prompt 843. @Ivor Slipper took a shot, Read it and leave a comment. https://gayauthors.org/story/ivor-slipper/kissing-friends/1
  11. Why is it after seeing all that all I can think of is the Green Man?
  12. Been a week and a half. Ordered a new phone. Might actually be able to afford a laptop too. Time will tell. Good luck all. Stay safe and well.
