    A Tribute to Angus Michael Tett

    A Tribute to Angus Michael Tett

    I woke up groggy the morning of Angus’ death. My eyes still had sand around the edges and my hair was jutting in one hundred different directions. I didn’t wake up by choice. I rolled over to my bedside table where my mom’s face had popped up on the phone screen. The time said 7:28 in the background. It was the only thing I could see in the pitch black. The violent buzzing from the call was a brutal sound for my headache. The sass in my head is a ruthless being, “What do you want?” I say in my best teenage attitude. My mind flipped through the past week thinking about every scenario that I could have possibly warranted a lecture at 7:28 in the morning. In the moments right after I answered, I damned myself as the most self-centered person in the world.

    A Mom on Overload

    A Mom on Overload

    I am a mother and a wife, and I work a full time job. My husband is disabled and I am the sole breadwinner. My son, who is 9, has autism, and even though it is what medical professionals refer to as high functioning, whew, is it something to deal with. My daughter, who is 16, suffers from anxiety of the social kind and just about every other kind as well, and depression is honestly a bit easier to manage since I myself deal with both depression and anxiety. Oh, and did I mention that my husband is disabled too? Yep! In a wheelchair due to a form of muscular dystrophy called Charcot-Marie Tooth's Syndrome. I have to a lot to aid him through the day as well. I work full time in the medical field and am a student myself. Put the insomnia to use to get my studies done. So, tired yet? I am.

    Appreciative

    Fast forward to a little over a year and the world has flipped upside down. A global pandemic, a race war, some mention of murder hornets thrown in the mix. My now 6 year old had just started to make friends in his new school and get the hang of kindergarten and 6 months in he's thrown back at home with me for a teacher.
