soooooo are we talkin big head or little head here...?whereas selfies from above your head are typically more flattering
My grandfather was just diagnosed with dementia. He’s at a home now. I had breakfast with him earlier this year at a restaurant. You never know when it’s the last time you’ll get to be someone.
Thanks a bunch. My grandfather is my last remaining grandparent. He is from another time, so he has caused a lot of turmoil with his attitude over the years. As a kid I wasn’t exposed to it enough to understand. He would take me fishing, I’d go ride a go-cart that he bought for us kids, and he would always take me out for breakfast whenever he would come and visit. I don’t think he was racists, but he would say things that just pissed people off. My grandma was catatonic before she was in her 60’s due to a unknown illness. His mind has been going and he’s in a bad state of mind. He thinks the nursing home is stealing his money, people are out to get him, and he can’t remember things. I’ve dealt with illness before. My other grandpa had Alzheimer’s and his mental health was hard on me as a kid. After a while it hardens your emotions because you’ve experienced loss over and over again.sorry buddy. you sound like you are a good grandson.
i never had a good relationship with my grandpa. we do the holiday and birthday family gathering stuff, but i never went out to breakfast with him, or just visited him on a sunday afternoon, or had any real significant connection with him. same with my dad.
men in my family have that whole "gotta be a real man" complex, so sentimetnal and emotional moments are kind of off the table. and by extension having any sort of deep, meaningful relationship is kinda off the table too. i dont think they meant for things to be that way, but when you build a shell around yourself in an attempt to project to the world how much of a tough guy you are, i guess there can sometimes be unintended consequences.
so again im really sorry to hear about him getting sick. i hear its pretty tough for family to experience, best of luck to all of you. not sure what kid of relationship you had with him, but it sounds like it was pretty decent, and that can be a comforting thought.
It was a good thing for me though I always loved renovations but didn't have all the skillset. I live alone and know no-one here and thus I was forced to learn some new skills. It just shows how school is useless in general and we're not taught to be self efficient enough.I’m unexpectedly learning house repair skills, rather than waiting around for contractors to be available. I fixed the toilet, replaced the garage door seal, and cleaned out the bathtub drains. Tomorrow I need to learn how to put up new window blinds.
It's why I bought myself a tombstone and lot. It'll be probably a generation but going to the cemetery, I always wondered what kind of people they were. That started in High School where we had to go to the cemetery and researched random people, it was a fascinating albeit dark exercise.Within 2 generations all of us will be forgotten.
Honestly, though it says "triggered," I mostly used it in place of a "cringe" reaction because the expression of the smiley is kinda how I'm feeling in response to the post. The main thing to consider is, the smileys are "reactions," so it should be how the person who posted it is feeling, not how they think you're feeling/thinking.Can someone explain the “triggered” reaction here? I mean, I know what being triggered is, but, does it mean the person reacting is triggered, or, does it mean my post seems like I’m triggered?
I can’t go to bed until I know the answer.
Understandable. I've wondered that on occasion. Hopefully, they'll expand the options over time.Even though it’s the person’s reaction, I was thinking in my head “maybe they think I’m upset by this irl and it’s mind games telling me I’m triggered”.
I would do that tbh so figured maybe others had that same idea.
Sure seems like they're actively trying to increase the spread of the infection, which means either there's a surplus now of vaccines, or sales are down and big pharma is pushing to get their numbers back up. Either way, seems like the time to get in on some last minute pharma investments. Maybe?
It’s one of those situations where you want to carry on hating them, but the human in you just wants to reach out and comfort them. It’s not a bad thing, per se, but it is annoying when the other person is usually a complete dick.The mother of one of my employees passed away yesterday while she was still on the clock. This particular employee, I think, hates my guts, and it makes getting through each day its own challenge. But when I saw her in the back hall sobbing and crying her eyes out like a small child, I began to cry myself and instinctively started to try and console her.
Well, to be clear, I don't have any ill feelings toward her. I think whatever she feels toward me is perhaps misplaced. But to be honest, it was comforting to see her humanity again. I'm sorry for her loss, and her reaction seemed to suggest she was either very close to her mother, or just had a lot of welled up emotions that her mother's passing released.It’s one of those situations where you want to carry on hating them, but the human in you just wants to reach out and comfort them.
