I buried 5 family members, including a parent.

They play fast and loose, until they are screaming at the 911 operator for help as their unconscious parent fades away in their arms. Sadly, my story won't change anything, so I no longer fight about it. People will continue to be self destructive. Sometimes you have to feel it, so I let them go about with their insanity and conspiracy theories.. wondering when it hits their house, if they will regret their decisions. Sad it has to be this way.

In what way

There are billions like you!!

No there are not - I am uniquely me

I stopped progressing on my path to manage my chronic migraines and depression. I'd almost go as far as say I have regressed.
