    My friend is very young. He's still at the age where he thinks if he wishes for something it will come true.

    It's funny, he is the same age as my older child and they couldn't be more different. My son is married and owns a home and has had the same job for about 3 years. My friend bounces from job to job and home to home. He too is married but they move around frequently and do a lot of impulse buying, plus they keep adding pets which makes renting challenging. He is a super sweet guy and wouldn't hurt a fly, but he has trouble deciding what to do with his life. Which isn't a bad thing and certainly isn't uncommon but he makes his own life more difficult than it needs to be.

    As for Canada, I think even if he could move there he would find it to be a big culture shock. Right now the US is being run in such a strange and unsettling way.

    He doesn't actually mean he plans to move to Canada. I can't tell you how many times he's said he is going to or wants to do something and a day or two later he's on to a new plan. I told him he gives me whiplash. I never try to help him with any of his plans because they never last.

    He really is a sweet guy. He just lacks direction and follow through and he is super impulsive. But he has a heart of gold.

    That kind of sounds like my husband when he was young. ❤️ Rebel without a clue. Lol

    My dad is not doing well. He gets daily reminder calls for his meds. When he didnít answer the police did a wellness check and found him passed out in his apartment. Back in his apartment with a severe infection from the operation.


    I just sent this to the Premierís Office :

    Dear Sir,

    My son is an Autistic adult who finds masking wear impossible due to intense sensory issues. Many people with my sonís disability find this very difficult. This can cause autistic people extreme distress where they melt down and become non-functional, non verbal or combative and with severe sensory issues actually cause them physical pain. This puts disabled people at risk of negative interactions with law enforcement or other people.

    At this point my son can barely leave our home due to all the changes if the province goes to mandatory mask wearing my son will never be able to leave home to go anywhere. This greatly impacts his need to be independent and his mental well-being.

    Is there a way the needs of the disabled can be accommodated?

    Thank you Sir for your consideration and protecting all Ontarians and controlling the pandemic.

    Sincerely,

    I would think your son could get a medical exemption. Can his doctor provide documentation?

    I'm sorry about your father, I hope he recovers soon.

    I hope my dad recovers but physically speaking he has been so bad off medically and otherwise he wants to die. He is 74 and you would swear he was 104, literally. It would be a great relief for him to actually go. And in a way relief to us, we would now have to no longer worry about his welfare. It seems cruel but considering what heís done... not really. My son gave me a hug without a prompt when he saw the tears in my eyes. 10 minutes later he started crying saying grandpa had always been good to him but he knows he is a bad bad person. My son fears my fatherís destination after death and I told him Iím sure God will consider his severe mental illness and his own life trauma but we all pay for our actions.

    I hope the dr would write my son a letter .
