People talk about mid-life crisis often, but you don’t hear anything about a beginning-life crisis. Us young ones do break down too, you know? I feel like I’m in the midst of such a crisis. On top of discovering that my father has throat cancer, I’m finding a myriad of other things developing with me. Namely:

  • Short temper
  • Lost passion in hobbies such as cooking and web design
  • Hiding in video games and movies
  • Day long depression

I’m not sure which of the above is due to discovering my father has cancer, but I’m sure some of it is a result. To add to the list, I get news tonight from my aunt about certain lifestyle choices my mother has made that will hurt her, and may even kill her. I won’t get into details, but I’m overwrought with disappointment and anger. What makes all this difficult is that I’m an easy-going level-headed kind of guy, I rarely lose my temper, but lately it seems all my emotions are beyond my control, and I really hate that.
