In my 3rd year of an arts degree in Trinity living with with my friends from school who I began to realise were toxic and suffering near constant panic attacks.

Much better now thankfully..

Having the worst year of my life. In hospital. Very ill. In pain.

Not a time I want to dwell upon.

I got better now thank god. Then my father got ill two years later. Then I got ill again.

the first part of that decade was not good.

Everything is ok now though ..or better

And I still won't know in 5 years time when this account is 20 years old.

A thread I made almost exactly 10 years ago;

The pit of the great recession. Those were some dark days. Never again (hopefully!). Covid doesn't compare, for me at least anyway.

Same as.
Was in fear of losing our home back then.

This year has been great for us, selling our house in town to buy a larger house in the countryside

I was at the peak of my powers as a bull****ter, soaking up the hot Mexican sun as I followed in the footsteps of the San Patricios from D.F. to Puerto Vallarta, and wearing an onion tied to my belt, which was the fashion at the time. Now I'm back in Ireland and have of course switched to garlic in accordance with local custom. Later today, on an excursion to Rathmines I will walk up Castlewood Avenue. Cromwell's Koonts marched up Castlewood Avenue back in the day. The dirty barstewards. It was mostly fields back then and instead of paying for things with money, we used to play each other little tunes on the tin whistle, a custom I maintain to this day in Tesco.

Was the eldest of 3, all alive at this point but both siblings now deceased and one parent, all happened within a short few years. The First in a car accident and this had a profound knock on effect on everyone else’s life, also I’m not that old, at least I think anyways but time ticks on. Oh to turn the clock back if only for a few minutes.

Sorry to hear of your losses amber. In the same decade and within a very short period - myself and the OH lost 3 parents between us.

I had such a weird decade. I entered it in third level and ended it in third level. The years seemed to speed up since around 2015.
