I don't wanna put bad thoughts in your head, but if you Google "RDR 2", "gold bar", and "Limpany", you might make an easy 500$.............

Placed an order on Monday (beer)... Tracking # Monday evening said it'd be delivered Tuesday... Now I knew that probbly wasn't gonna happen (border's closed), but hey... Tuesday at 5am it said it had been delayed til Wednesday!.. Huzzah: I was right all along!..

Wednesday afternoon it said "it'd be impossible to deliver all the packages", but they'd keep us updated...

Got a mail: delivery re-scheduled for Thursday...

An hour later: mail saying my package had been delivered. Me at that point in time:  ???

Didn't even check whether anything had been actually delivered... Went into work this morning: big box of lovely beer had indeed been delivered. One?.. For a 340€ order?.. Hmmmm...

Collegue dropped off the box at my place (I was by foot)... Going through the box... Hmmm so where's the rest of the beer exactly?..

Checked the tracking #: Time of delivery today between 13:45 and 17:45 Driver is en route

This motherfucker must really like his fucking job, that he spreads the delivery of two boxes at the same location over two days...  :-X

Just learned that my mom has Alzheimer’s. Been worried for a while, but had to deal with the reality today. As if things weren’t already bad enough.

I’m so sorry to hear this, Adam. That’s a harsh reality. I hope that you have other family to share it with, together. My heart goes out to you.

Grateful for the sentiments @sabergirl I’m a mess. My family is not really a family, more of a cautionary tale and the main reason I don’t have a family of my own. I’m destroying myself for missing the magnitude of this. I saw what was happening but was ignorant to the true cause. I was trying to keep myself from drowning and couldn’t spend the time with her that I should’ve. I just thought that it was alcohol, loneliness and multiple rounds of chemotherapy. This is what happens to people who can’t afford to go to the doctor or hospital when necessary. Things which would’ve been caught years ago go untreated. And then when it’s identified, the cost is overwhelming. And she’s under 60, so I’ve been unable to get help from state services, and the social security is taking an eternity and I have to go to court to get declared her guardian etc.

Will be selling everything that’s not essential.

And to pile on, my car was hit by a century link truck today while parked on the street. Good times

I'm sorry Adam. I'm going through it with my grandfather - still going through it. It's a terrible disease to live with. The decline is really rough to handle. x.

@adam313

Before you start selling things and I'm sure you already feel overwhelmed:
Check into the Alzheimers Association and see what they can do to help you out financially. There are a lot of resources to help you out clinically and financially. Alzheimers is the #3 most funded medical research in the country after HIV and cancer (maybe covid19 now, but that will be temporary)
In a past life I worked in Alzheimers research (did my Masters thesis in early onset AD). My deepest sympathies, but there is a lot of help out there for you.

Humbled by your response everyone. “Thank you” doesn’t begin to express the full gratitude I feel to have a community like this one where I can share both my best and worst days and everything in between. Yesterday was rough, but today begins again and I have to keep truckin somehow. Love you all. @sabergirl @Seul @Matty123 @Snowy @DougNg @Jett129

There is a lot of sticker shock with the cost of assisted care, but very few pay for it in its entirety.

When things calm down a bit, find some support groups. I know there are some big ones on FB. They will have a gaggle of ways to help. There are a lot of people with AD, there is a very robust support system.

Things are going to be tough, but you are far from unalone.

That sucks @adam313 . AD was one of  the factors in my Mom's death.
Doug Ng is on the money, there are a lot of support groups out there and please take advantage of them, it's easy to be overwhelmed by AD
