    My mom has stage 3 pancreatic cancer. They've given her a year to live.

    I'm a fucking wreck. I don't want my mom to die. :(

    That is awful. So sorry man.

    That's quite a situation. I'm glad she's getting some help form your State with the 3x a week. Make sure you vet the agencies for the direct home care (If you've not done so already) as some of them can be kinda sketchy to their PSWs. But yes that will help a lot once that starts. Here's hoping things get better soon. I have firsthand account of this sort of care through my wife and her dad as they looked after my MIL, and it can be very stressful on the caregivers. The dinner thing sounds like it's a huge headache you don't need.

    I really appreciate your compassion here and I very much wish you and yours the best as the long family struggle (process?) goes on.

    Thank you.

    No worries at all.

    Yeah, we got past the death but now we are dealing with the fallout of discovering in the Autopsy that the degenerative neuro afflictionshe had is genetic, and atosomnal dominant meaning that my genes don't water it down or prevent the possibility of my kids getting it, let alone my wife, her siblings and her cousins.

    It's been a shitty few days dealing with that.

    Super shitty. I am so sorry man. Autosomal dominant stuff really sucks. If you don't mind me asking, what is the name of the disease?

    Actually had a really good, like the early-days, day yesterday with my wife. We went out for lunch, macarons, soaps, and general shopping. It just felt like how it used to.

    First couple's counseling session today. Mostly setting the stage for future conversations by getting the overall picture of what we are getting counseling for and our respective histories. It is going to take a whole other session to get past the mere highlights of our history, especially with so many huge topics only slightly touched upon. She was crying on and off through most of it, understandable in part because of all the people in her life (like her 3 month old daughter) who have died.

    We seem to have a good counselor and I am encouraged by having a something in motion for maybe repairing our relationship. There was a telling moment during the session where the counselor compared a past stressful job I had where I was quickly burning out to the current stressors of her job, and asking her if it felt like a similar situation. She did acknowledge the similarities, which was nice.

    So now, another session next week, and hopefully this will begin to untangle things enough to keep us going or help me find out if things cannot be salvaged.

    It was a good and promising weekend. Picked apples with the wife and step-daughters, fell asleep on the couch reading books together with the wife, played a GERP with the sister and her friends, the wife was home two nights in a row and even cooked a dinner for the first time in a long time.

    And then, this evening, while watching the first episode of Post-Mortem, a scene where the main character almost gets cremated triggered memories in my wife and she ran. I don't know where she drove off to, though I suspect she is visiting one of her work friends for comfort I am obviously unable to give. I think one of the worst parts was her seeing the hurt and "don't leave" in my eyes, and still rushing out that door. So the memories of this weekend are now hazed out a bit as I sit at home alone.

    Who am I? I am a host of forgotten tomes, lying in tombs. Lyrics lacking cadence, stomping feet with nary a rumble.
    I am the one.
    I am the Archivist and my words shall live forever. This is not a blessing. It is a curse eternal.
