Mood: depressed
The last couple of weeks have been rough. Rough to the point where I truly believe my family is cursed.

Back in February, my Mom, going through a mid age crisis wanted to take one last family vacation to Disney World. The problem was we had to go during school time, and I wasn't too thrilled about it. I really had no interest to go to Disney World, to me it's a global scam, but my mom REALLY wanted this to happen. So we all went a little over a month ago. Now after everything that has happened, I feel a sense of guilt for not wanting to go.

You see, two weeks ago, I get a phone call from my dad on my way home from school. In a very nonchalant tone, he tells me to go to Sunoco to get my car inspected. I ask to borrow his car to get my check from work. He says he can't. I ask why. He tells me he has cancer. Whoa. Then he tells me not to tell my mom, or my sister, that he wants to tell them in person. I get to Sunoco. My mind is totally blank. I was so f***ed up by this, that I actually just left my car in the parking lot and walked home, forgetting to even go in the station. I get home, and my mom and sister are already there. I have to f***ing lie to them when they ask me if I heard from dad. Then he comes home, calls everybody into the kitchen and tells us he has Myeloma. Just this last Friday, we found out how specific this is. He's got to go through chemo for the next three months or so, and then needs a bone marrow transplant. Wow. It's just so weird. Anyone have any experience with this specific form of cancer. I hear the success rate is somewhat good, but I want some outside opinions, someone who will give it to me straight. He's 58, and had a massive heart attack in '92. How bad does that hurt his chances? According to his doctor, not by much.

On top of that, not even a week after we find out my dad has cancer, I get a letter in the mail. You see, back in April '09, I got into a car accident. Skidded on black ice, and hit some bimbo in front of me. Totaled my first car. She tells me and my dad that she's absolutely fine, and that she was more concerned about me. Yeah. Over a year later, we get a letter saying that she's suing me for injury, suffering, blah blah blah. Took it to my insurance agent. Have yet to hear word on that.

God hates me.

Wow, I am really sorry to hear about all of this!

I've never personally have experienced first-hand anyone with myeloma, but I have a friend whose father has it, but it's not that serious for him, fortunately. Sorry to hear that your own father has it.

That girl must be in need of money or something. That's really retarded that she waits a year later to sue - if anything, that will hurt her case, waiting so long to sue, especially after telling you she was fine.

I hope your situation improves and I hope your dad's health does too.

You might want to check on the statute of limitations for lawsuits for personal injuries in your state. If this twit filed suit over a year after the accident it might be too late in some jurisdictions and you can get it dismissed on those grounds.
