This isn’t actually a complaint. I read your Cracked article and wanted to reach out and tell you I can relate.
I’m 21 now, but when I was 14 my mother had a seizure and it turned out she had a brain tumour. It was a long road to recover, and I can so awfully relate to that moment when you saw your dad trembling with a spoon in his hand.
My mother is fine now, but I too wish for a timeline where this never happened. She does seem okay, but we’ll never really know what long term effects it had on her brain. I wish it had just never happened.
Ultimately I just wanted to thank you for writing an article I found so relatable. I hope most of the people who read it never truly realise how accurate it is.
