Archives | All my posts on Aunty MERJ

Sometimes my blog posts can be read and enjoyed as standalone posts, but most of the time I’m cataloging my life so each posts builds on the other. I thought I’d create a page that captures all the posts (2018-2019) about Aunty MERJ because she seems to pop up quite a bit, at least these days. This way visiting readers can have some backstory.

Who is Aunty MERJ?
She’s my aunt who raised me from age 7 to 17. She favors me not because I’m that special, but I think I pay the most attention to her. Human suffering is my weakness. Anyway, now she lives in a retirement community in Tampa and her health is failing.  As a result, I’ve become her de facto care coordinator.  I’m not very good at it primarily because I’m not much of a nurturer and I don’t really want to do it. But she took such great care of me, and I feel very guilty doing nothing. Also none of my other family members have really signed up to help.

Based on my research of her numerous disease states, she has a life expectancy of 73.4 years. In 2019, she turned 70, so her expected date of expiry is 2022 (up to March 2023). Even with all that, she lives life joyously everyday. I don’t know how she does it!
