 Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | Day 17

My day began by texting my old friend to check in on his Mom. He told me that she was stable and he was just going home to shower etc. I told him I’d be by later today.

So I went back to my routine of push ups and sit ups. I didn’t feel like doing an early run today but I started walking inside my own place and doing upper cuts while pacing back and forth. I would do this outside but I don’t want people staring……. Some things are just meant for the indoors.

So I went about my morning walk to work and then left early for the hospital once more. When I got there, my friend asked me to help him run errands while his brother and wife sat with his Mom. So we drove around town and talked about life while getting shit done. The last stop was picking up his son at daycare and then taking him to another friends home for a sleepover. All of this actually took quite a long time and when we left our friends place it was already 7:15 P.M.

At that point, I gave my friend a hug and walked home, as he went back to the hospital.

When I got home, I went on a 2km run and thought about the type of friend I was. This was one of my oldest friends and I started feeling like I haven’t been the best friend to him over the last few years. I barely know his son and I’m sure he’d like me to know him more than I do right now. I felt guilty and started wondering if I was a narcissist. I made a point to myself to analyze that more. Maybe I complained about Narcissists because I am one myself? A shadow perhaps?

After my run, I took a shower and rested. Not long after I received a text that my friends mom had passed away. I offered my condolences but didn’t call as I knew he was mourning with his family at the hospital.

I went out for another walk… to just walk. I thought about my own parents and their mortality mostly………..

Sad day 🙁

Edward Ernest is pretty much the coolest guy that ever lived.......according to himself. He's one of the founders of and has zero respect from any of his colleagues.To the outside world, he's this very nice upstanding citizen, but behind closed doors he's one of the meanest people we know.Yes, he writes nice articles and gives good advice. It might even seem like he cares about you and wants to be your friend. But please, don't be fooled.We've seen him kick a dog a with a broken leg before and have heard him on the phone berating his grandmother for only giving him a $5 birthday gift.Be thankful he's not related to you.
