    My uncle died

    My dad's oldest brother died yesterday. It's sad because he had Alzheimer's really bad but in a way it good he isn't suffering anymore. The past seven years have been particularly bad. I saw him last Father's Day and it was sort of painful to see him. He just sat in his motorized wheelchair...

    Joan Rivers

    She passed away today. I don't know if she's a big deal in the UK but she's so close to my grandpa's age. My grandpa is older by a year. I hope my grandpa doesn't die. I really do. I will be so lost without my grandpa...

    Are you on meds? Why am I on meds, if they don't help?

    I'm just wondering if it's possible to stop my meds. They do absolutely nothing for me. I can hardly function on meds so what's the difference between that and not being on them? I want to get off of them. She seems to think I need to be on them. I'm on so many meds. People think I'm crazy...

    So unproductive

    I feel absolutely worthless today. Ive done nothing productive. I watched a bunch of Netflix because I had nothing else to do. My family went to visit my grandpa. I've been distancing myself from family. Especially my grandpa because he's 81 and I'm afraid he's going to die. I can't have another...
