Story Time - 6K Edition
Everyone has been doing one recently so I decided to do one in honor of my 6K posts. Yes, you should say congratulations to me but read my story first. Oh yeah, this is also my first time writing a story like this but I have been thinking of writing one for some time now, I just never found the time or desire to do so until now.
My story isn't a funny story or a fictional story. My story is something that happened to me almost six years ago. I never really expressed this event in my life to any of my friends or anybody that I knew because I never felt the reason to bring it up. It didn't make me feel special and it certainly didn't make me feel different then anyone else. I learned first hand that life was a gift and you should always live life like it was your last day. I learned that death wasn't a scary or sad thing, its just the part of life and it happens. I learned all of these principles by myself when I was relatively young. I didn't have anyone to teach me anything or tell me cover up stories that hid the truth. I knew what I saw and what I experienced and I took it with until this day.
I want to write about my uncle. Someone I looked up to when I was very young. Someone I trusted that would always understand my problems that my parents didn't. He was a special person to me and I will always have a part of him inside of me until the day I die. My uncle died from liver cancer back in 2008. The events leading up to that were blurry and I wasn't aware at the time about the seriousness of cancer. I knew he was sick but a little part of me knew he would someday get better. And there was a little part of me that knew that something bad was happening. I didn't know the severity of cancer but I knew that I wanted my uncle to get better. I can still remember those nights when all of my family would get together and have conversations about his treatment. I can still remember the day when I asked my uncle why he had lost all of his hair. I can still remember the day he came back home from chemo in a wheelchair because he was to weak to walk. Those events are forever apart of me now and are the lasting memories I have of my uncle. I didn't get to see my uncle during the last few months of his life. I never saw him in the hospital nor did I go to his funeral. When I heard the news from my mom, I didn't know what to think. I remember praying each and every night hoping he would get better. I did not think my efforts were in vain because from that I learned about faith and the love you can have for another person. There were so many things that I experienced during that time that changed who I am today. Life is something given to you and its up to you on how you want to control it. I didn't cry when I heard the news, I just accepted the facts for what they are. To this day I still view life the same way as I had six years back, and I do not plan on that to change.
Some may ask me why I decided to write something so personal to people on the internet. My answer to that is simple. During that time, I sought refugee from all of the things happening around me through my computer. The computer became my outlet of emotions. It allowed me to escape my thoughts and move away from all of the emotional things happening around me. At that time, I didn't have a computer of my own. My family all shared a computer. When my uncle moved into my house, he let me use his computer when he was sleeping and resting from his chemo. I can remember the days when I was playing Runescape while sitting next to my uncle's bed when I went home from school. I wanted to write about this because like the time I had back then, the internet for me today is also a way to escape my feelings. When I'm sitting here writing about my uncle, I remember the things from the past but not all things in the past are bad. I just want to let you guys know the experience I have had when I was young and how the life in general has effected me to become who I am today.
Live life like its your last day because you will never know when you will lose yours.
I can kinda relate to that story as I looked up to my uncle and I still do. He passed away when he was 21 or 22.
The thing that's different about our stories is that he died instantly without warning. I can't remember what the disease is called but it runs through genetics.
His dad died (my grandfather) from the same thing but in his 40's. The thing that sucks most is that my uncle was a well known dj (early 2000's) and he'd dj for ministry of sound clubs and what not. He was fit, he didn't smoke, and he barely drank too. On day he was going go-karting in Lanzarote with his mum (Step mum/my grandma) and he just suddenly fainted. He literally dropped dead on the spot. I remember the exact moment that my brother and I found out. We were sitting on a bunkbed as we shared a room and we were playing monsters inc on Playstation 1. My dad came in and told us what happened (he just got home from work). I was quite young at the time so I had no idea what was happening. I was confused. My mum (uncles older sister) was sitting on the floor leaning against a wall looking down crying, my older brother was crying and I was just there in the middle of it all. I think about my uncle everyday as he is my true inspiration. I know he lives on in me.
