I've been writing most of my life and this particular diary has been with me for almost half of that time.

Decline

April 16, 2022
I move my face so it's in her line of site and although she's looking right at me, her eyes don't react. I try to look her in the eye but there is no return. Even though her dementia has progressed, I try to act and treat her like she's still there... like it's okay that…

    March 27, 2022
    There is no justice in a world that uses violence to end violence.   Our children will carry these burdens. And in turn, they too will be more likely to carry out violence against their fellow human.   Is this justice? Is this freedom? Is this truth?   When will it end?   When...

    "Whoever lays his hand on me to govern me is a usurper and tyrant, and I declare him my enemy" -Proudhon War, in general, is a crime against all of humanity and the earth. It hinders the advancement of our species, wastes resources, and decimates communities. Cultures are torn apart. Lives are lo...

    My mind has been quiet lately. I'm still having intrusive thoughts but they don't have the grip on me that they previously had. I'm moving forward and it feels good. I have a hearing for my divorce in a few weeks. I'm looking forward to wiping the slate clean of my ex. I can't fully…

    She came by today so I could sign the divorce papers. She dropped off a few more things I forgot somewhere. All business. We hardly spoke. Always business with her. Not that there's much left to say. Despite just seeing her, our time together seems like forever ago. I reflect upon the good times ...

  • Another day
    January 2, 2022
    Everyday brings new challenges. A new mindset. A new pain. A new opportunity. Will it be the day I die? Probably not but there's always a possibility. No, chances are this will be like all the days before. I wake, I breathe... I go on with the day. And there's a lot in one day,…

    It's hard being alone on the holidays. I called my mom today. She cried while I told her I loved her and I missed her and that I hoped to see her soon. My sister said she felt like my mom understood, that she cried differently depending on what my sister said. I can tell…

    I got into a car accident yesterday. Everyone was okay, except my bruised ego... I feel so stupid. I know mistakes happen and everyone was okay, so the situation will be resolved eventually, but damn it sucks fucking up someone's day like that. Today I went to start my car and my battery was dead...

    I have been remembering my dreams lately, which is not typical or welcome. In my dreams I see people that are no longer with me, both alive and dead. Many years ago I dreamt of my uncle and my grandmother,  and in my dream, I acknowledged the impossibility of the situation as they were both…

  • Nothing
    December 16, 2021
    I wish our last interaction could have been a nice goodbye. I still can't get over how stupid I think you are for getting involved with someone. Or maybe I can't get over how stupid I feel... because I probably am projecting. And ultimately I probably deserve this, after all the shittiness I've p...
