nurse nan

So my sister just woke me up to tell me that the palliative nurse was with my nan and they said that it could be “imminent”.

I…don’t know what to do. I’m sorry, but I think I might need to take a break from writing at the moment. I just…I’m sorry.

I laugh when I see the older larries screaming ageism everytime we call out their offensive and problematic behaviour… 

Ageism is when you are refused insurance because you could ‘croak at any minute’.. 

Ageism is where you’re deemed unfit to do your job because you ‘might be senile’.. 

Ageism is when you’re patronised at an electronics store by the shop assistant because they think you’re ‘too old to understand’… 

Ageism is where the nurse thinks my Nan is too old to understand how to take her own meds so she explains it me even though my Nan, though she is 75, knows every single pill she takes, what they are for and when she should take them…

Ageism affects actual old people.. people 60+.. Not the 37 year mother of two sat behind her computer thinking it’s ok to force two twenty-something men into a relationship just to make them happy.. thinking it’s ok to bully the women in said men’s lives… thinking it’s ok to say a newborn child is not fake or does not belong to his father… 

Take your ageism crap elsewhere please, you get no sympathy from me, grow up.
