The week was one of the hardest I had ever faced. With every episode of “Good Morning Bushwick” that went live, I felt the darkness within me grow. My depression soared to new heights, and my drinking intensified, sending me spiraling down a bottomless pit. All the while, my sister’s condition continued to deteriorate, and the walls of my world were collapsing around me. It was on one of those dreadful hospital visits that my life changed irrevocably. I was guided into a sterile white room where my family’s heart-wrenching cries echoed off the walls. The doctors, their faces etched with sorrow, informed us that there was nothing more they could do for my sister. The machines were keeping her body alive, but her spirit was gone. I remember the feeling of my knees buckling, my body crumpling to the floor as I screamed in horror. My eyes swelled with tears, blurring my vision as I was led away from the room later that day by Cheez and Brenna, their arms wrapped around me, trying to keep me upright. It was a week in hell. And as my birthday approached, my family gathered at my mom’s house, faced with the unbearable decision of when to remove the life support that tethered my sister to this world. I stumbled into the house, the alcohol coursing through my veins, numbing the pain that threatened to tear me apart. The living room felt alien to me, a stranger in a familiar place. The air was thick with despair, and the weight of the decisions being made crushed me. My family spoke, their voices a blur, as they tried to navigate the unthinkable. But I was silent. I was too weak, too drunk, too consumed by the regret that gnawed at my soul. I had spent my life chasing fame and fortune, and in doing so, I had alienated myself from the people who mattered the most. I felt unworthy, an outsider in my own family, and I was the one who had put myself there. As I sat on that sofa, my head swimming in a foggy haze, I could feel the tears streaming down my face. The room seemed to stretch out around me, the voices of my family growing distant and distorted. The oppressive weight of my emotions bore down on me, leaving me gasping for air, desperate for some semblance of clarity.
