My dad called me back and the good news is my grandparents aren’t dying. Bad news, I now know a lot more about both my parents, things that I have to keep to myself. Talk about the weight of the world on your shoulders. :/
They will find time to spend with you, even if it’s 5 minutes out of the day. “Busy” or not.
It’s just not true.
If the trust is reciprocal, than you don’t need to talk every day. Sometimes people are busy. lives happen. Jobs happen. People happen. It’s harmful to friendships and relationships alike to uphold this sort of paradigm; if they care about you they will still care about you no matter how busy they are. And if you trust them you’ll know that they still care even if they can’t squeeze out some time for you.
So with my project, there’s a horrid disease associated with it that I feel I must exclude from said project. I won’t say the name of the disease, but it’s basically what happens when the immune system attacks the eyes with 100% force, sometimes leaving nothing left of the eyes but a ball of blood or worse. Yeah, I’m not going to subject my fellow students to pictures of that. :/
