suspiciouscoffee said:My step-grandmother might be dying. Not Corona or anything, pneumonia from normal things. Mom’s upset because she hasn’t spoken to her stepmom since Christmas and who knows if she’ll get to again. It’s probably been longer since I’ve talked to her. It’s… a lot.
Duragizer said:Shortly after my mother was released from the hospital three weeks ago, she became anemic. Since then, her energy levels have plummeted, and now she can't so much as take a walk from the living room to the kitchen without getting winded. Whereas before she only needed to routinely wear her oxygen while doing chores or sleeping, now she constantly wears it.
She'd already been taking iron supplements for about a year now, but had fallen into the habit of skipping her lunch one. Under her doctor's advice, she started taking that pill at noon and eating more iron-rich food in hopes of improving her energy levels. So far, there's been no sign of improvement.
Now to top it all off, it appears she might've caught a bug. I doubt very much it's the coronavirus, but even if it's just the common cold, I don't know how she'll fare in her present condition.
Duragizer said:I do love my mother and she's the only person I have in my life I have any degree of closeness to.
Possessed said:I don't really have anything I'm lacking to feel better. I have a rewarding job. A great girlfriend. I'm just emotionally dysfunctional I guess. Being a drug user and an alcoholic probably isn't helping. My girlfriend isn't either of those things though so if I ever get passed that I won't have to worry about it creating a barrier between us.
