Out of the Blue

Today is a bad day for me, the anniversary of my mom's death. It's been ten years now, so I've been trying to use that milestone as a way of trying to put aside some more of the pain over this, and have been pretty successful. Sadly, however, a friend of ours just lost his mom this week, and we are to go offer condolences at some sort of pre-funeral gathering today, which is interesting timing to say the least. Undeterred, we will make the best of this, and I will still try to use the experience in a positive way. No one needs to feel bad about this, I'm fine. Just over-sharing as usual.

My girlfriend lost her mother a few years ago to a brain tumor and while comforting her on the anniversary of the death, it hit me recently that I have no clue how I will handle it when my mother dies. I've never bothered to emotionally prepare for the loss of my parents, this is perhaps a very foolish mentality that I need to get over so it doesn't hit me so hard later. My girlfriend was a total fucking mess for the better part of a year and she at least was able to say goodbye and get some closure.

I actually get a little upset with my parents because they're overweight, don't exercise and don't seem to care about improving their quality of life. My dad has had cancer twice now and basically shouldn't be alive yet he's back to the old habits that got him there in the first place. I've tried giving them the grand children guilt speech but they just like shitty food way too much and who am I to dictate their lifestyle to them.

Anyways as always condolences Blue, I can't relate in any meaningful way yet but I can certainly sympathize.
