Being a dad is tough, but being a human is often tougher.
It doesn’t mean you don’t love your child. In fact, it means the opposite.
The diagnosis, while not changing me as a person, helped me to understand myself better. It helped me to treat myself better.
I keep picturing Kindergarten Cop only Arnold is screaming, “It’s not the virus!”
It was as if everything we have ever loved, hated, or known was taken away.
It’s not the same. It isn’t real.
I don’t let them turn me into the same people who hurt me. I never will.
People like that love company.
Sometimes my posts betray me. I snitch on myself, as the kids say.
Don’t do what I do. I won’t do what you do. We do what’s right for our families.
