He was diagnosed with a rare form of Non-Hodgkins lymphoma about 2 months ago. About 20% of these patients will have a remission, but most of those people are younger and the cancer is detected early. My father is close to 60 and the cancer was detected VERY LATE. The doctor is giving him approximately 6 more months to live. My relationship with him and my whole family has always been shit. Of coarse we had our moments, but for the most part I despised him for reasons that are still unclear to me. As nice of a guy that he is, he has had major frustration his whole life because of a psychological problem that he never got treated for. Well as of now he's just sitting on the couch watching T.V and says that he plans to do that until he's dead. He says he's had enough of this world and nothing remotely interests him. He says his life was shit from the start and that that is the way it will end. This is very hard to listen to but it is true....the poor guy. I don't know what to do. This is about him, not me. I'd like to make his last few times on earth meaningful but there is no getting through to him. He's already dead on the inside.
