We had all the 2020 thing: memorable. Memorable is a word we could use.

On top of all of it, I found out I had 2 hernias, then the day before the operation I had a stroke. I'm 45 and I had a stroke, so they wouldn't fix my hernia, and they can't find out why I even had the stroke. They won't let me go back to work until late January... and I was in the middle of several jobs that needed my attention, so they've been 4 months postponed which will make my coming back to work late January very interesting, especially considering my new issues.

My son spent this birthday in prison.

My new snake stressed out and died, probably the worst year for the snake all things considered, or anyone or anything that's died in 2020. I just know about the snake.

Anyone else wanna complain about this year?
Maybe some projections for 2021?

You were lucky.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I got a Geico commercial there gallagher. 2020 just sucks

But I agree Tommy, 2 hernias, a stroke, 4 months out of work, and a son in prison isn't all that bad. It could have been worse. There is over a week to go, so it still can be.

Sorry to hear about the disheartening road blocks you have encountrred. Have you had any successful happenings? If so, care to share them?

Sounds like 2020 was going to be bad for you covid or not. Add the craziness of all that and it is really bad. Sorry to hear all that.

Not a hope in hell. This is the century of change, where things do not get better but get worse year after year. Mind you, the next century might be good for them who survive.

Well, I more wanted to hear everyone else's problems. It help put things into perspective.

My stroke, although they say it was a big one, was apparently also a good one (if you're going to have one at all). It affected both sides of my brain but in a lot of small areas, so the initial big problems my brain could fortunately "re-wire around" and the issues I'm still dealing with are, if not reparable, can be lived with.
The hernias are still there, but can be handled later, they aren't life-threatening. just uncomfortable.
And my son... well he's spent most of his birthdays since 17 in Juvenile or jail, so it wasn't a surprise to anyone.

I had a bad day that day, and was drinking and then went to the Internet (Which I should NEVER do).
Actually, I shouldn't even be here today!

Merry Christmas, and I still hate 2020!

I lost over 200 grand in revenue. BUT that is meaningless when compared to things that involve health and family. That was why I didn't want to post it. I didn't want to treat it as a contest of sorts. Sorry.

The Lockdown was far worse than the disease IMHO .. My cousin Steve was locked down. He was leery of going to the hospital when he was feeling bad. An undiagnosed condition led to a heart attack and he died. Six weeks later his brother Gary committed suicide. The lockdown wiped out an entire side of my family. NOT Covid.......We have been using the Zelenko Protocol and we are all healthy..Thank God.

Thank you so much for this link, Gallagher. Here is John Prine in essence laughing at his own later death. (We lost him to covid in March, this year). I really loved the guy, who continued to write music after surviving cancer of the neck and lungs. In one of his last songs, he sings "when I get to heaven, I'm gonna smoke a cigarette nine miles long"; even while casting doubt on heaven itself. Yes, the world has lost almost 2 million and the US almost 350,000 to covid.... but we now have a vaccine for 2021. "You are what you are and you aint what you aint."

Lynn (who wishes a much better 2021 for all including our OP).

Don't think I'm taking your problems lightly, Josh.

But you certainly win 2020 bingo!
