The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

Today, I went to work. Visited my father his feet are swollen to the size of hams. It looks like there are hams attached to his legs. He again refuses to go to the hospital.

I finally snapped after pleading with him to get help and told him that I did not think that he had any intention of getting any help. He was just commiting suicide in front of us. My sister Carleen also joined in. I had no idea that she was hurting like I was. You constantly try to convince someone to get help and they constantly shut you down and yet it just feels sick as if they are delighting in telling you everything that is wrong with them. You try to lead them to the hospital but they come up with excuse after excuse. Then you just reach the realization that they want to kill themselves by not wanting to get treatment.

His feet and legs are swollen to the point where it looks like he has elephantitis or something. I am hurt and angry that he refuses help. However, I can not live with myself if I did not try to get him help. I am sure that he probably is suffering from depression on top of all this. If he were not depressed maybe he would see reason and see that he is hurting himself and his family.
