I’m happy to report that my father is doing well today. Though they’re still not certain what actually caused his “cardiac incidents” they have inserted a permanent pacemaker / defribulator to address the symptom – his heart stopping. Thank you all for the kind words through this. I was really taken aback from all of ...

What really matters

12.11.2005 · Posted in Family

I got out of my Thursday night Men’s Big Book Study meeting in St. Paul and checked my cell phone. 4 missed calls. All from my mother. Mom’s a little OCD, but this was a little out of the ordinary, even for her. Something had to be wrong. I checked my voicemail. Mom calling. Sounds ...

Life is F.I.N.E.

I’m fine lately. Fucked up Insecure Neurotic Emotional Hah! No seriously, things are okay. Nothing really new going on. Just the usual work, the program, and still working on getting the website back up to par after the incident. Actually, I take that back. There is something new. I started my ninth step. I was ...

Okay, so turns out that maybe my brother’s ex girlfriend isn’t actually expecting. Sounds like the incident was more of a tactic to get him back than anything. I’m praying that’s the case. ...

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood

06.02.2004 · Posted in Family

Today started out busy. Busy is good when you don’t want to think, and I didn’t care for thinking today. I spoke with my mom for about 45 minutes. She’s continuing to dramatize. It’s almost like she watched too many episodes of Rescue 911 with William Shatner, where every segment contains a ‘dramatization’ disclaimer, only ...

And once again

06.01.2004 · Posted in Family

… I am going to be an uncle. I’ve got 2 older half brothers, 2 older half sisters and 1 younger (full) brother. All older siblings are married and have children – 6 nieces and nephews total. I just found out this evening from my mentally ill mother that my younger brother got his ex-girlfriend ...
