    Family issues, need opinions!

    Hello everyone, I need your opinions on a subject that I don't know how to deal with, more than an answer or support. Here's a little background to the story so you can understand better. My father and his younger brother, whom I'm very close to, have always had a very complicated...

    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...

    Eccentric family members?

    Anyone else come from a really loopy family? I don't necessarily mean mentally ill, just eccentric. For example, I have a 44 year old uncle (my dads brother) who plays with dolls and pretends to be a child all the time. He also loses absolutely everything, is incredibly chaotic, takes his...

    Death

    It seems to be surronding me. I just found out my sixth year teacher died. She was so young (45), I don't know from what. She had two young daughters. I'm upset. I've already had a great uncle, an ex coworker (that I was close to) and my old Yoga instructor pass away this year. Now my teacher...

    You were a great man uncle.

    My uncle died yesterday, he had COPD. He was such a lovely person and had so many friends and family who loved him. I'll regret not spending more time with him for the rest of my life, I'm not sure if it's a phase you go through when your a teenager, when you stop attending family things but...

    Rant

    Well, my Unlce called on Friday to ask if I'd heard from my parents, who are on holiday. We had a chat, and I mentioned that I was hoping we'd be able to try out our new lawnmower over the weekend. My Uncle laughed and said that my dad had told him I was known as the lawnmower killer (we've been...

    I'm really desperate right now. I've been struggling with depression ever since my sophomore year. Recently I moved to Portland, and got a job with Marriott. My uncle works there and has a great reputation with everyone. Now I have just fallen down a hole with my depression. My schedule makes it...

    No idea!

    Okay, so I'll try to make this as brief as I can. My Grandmother, as a very kind-hearted, easily manipulated woman, still allows my uncle to live with her. Now, this isn't about my Grandmother primarily, it is about my uncle. My uncle is nearly 40, he has never had a job in his life. His father...
